"YOU, yourself, just as much as anyone in the entire Universe,
deserve your love and affection:"
How is your relationship with yourself?
Are you taking great care of yourself when it comes to your physical, mental and emotional health?
It's not selfish to take care of yourself.
Where are you on the list of people that you are taking care of?
Are you on the top? Or are you on the very bottom of the list?
And if you are being totally honest..... are there so many people to take care of and by the time you get to finishing taking care of all of them, you seldom get around to taking care of yourself?
Does this sound like you?
Every day you might be asking yourself....."When is someone going to do something for me?" Or
"When is someone ever going to appreciate me....I do all the work around here!"
Does this sound familiar?
If you don't take care of yourself, you will finally get to a point where you won't be able to take care of other people.
You might get to a point where it will be physically impossible for you to take care of others.
Or it will be mentally or emotionally impossible for you to do it.
Or you might be so drained and worn out from taking care of others that you now have become angry and even resentful from always helping others, and maybe they secretly wish that you wouldn't help them because you constantly show up with such a bad attitude.
"Self respect, self worth and self love,
all start with self.
Stop looking outside for your value."
- Rob Liamo
If you don't love yourself, it will be impossible for you to love anyone else. You can't give away what you don't have.
If you have no love for yourself, how are you going to be able to love anyone?
If you don't value yourself, how will you be able to value anyone?
If you don't respect yourself, how will you be able to respect anyone else?
It's impossible for me to give you something that I don't have. It doesn't matter how hard I try. If I don't have it, I can't give it to you.
If I have an apple, I can give that apple to you. But if I don't have an apple to give you, it doesn't matter how hard I try to give you an apple, I don't have an apple to give to you. If I don't have something to give you, it doesn't matter how hard I try, I simply can't give it to you.
Are you being hard on yourself? How are threating others? Are you being hard on them?
Time to do a little soul searching and figure out what kind of relationship you have with yourself.
Take some time to yourself..... and really figure this one out.
Do you like yourself?
Do you love yourself?
Do you value yourself?
Do you respect yourself?
Do you do things for yourself?
Do you meet you valid needs without feeling guilty about it?
Self care is not self indulgence. Self care is self respect.
