What is self-love?
When googled for the definition, it means : regard for one’s own well-being and happiness (chiefly considered as a desirable rather than narcissistic characteristic)
Angels always remind me that I have to love myself before I can love others. It took me a long while to understand what they’re trying to tell me. I always ask myself.. What do you mean by loving yourself? I know it looks and sounds profound..pfft! At first I thought so too. But, it really isn’t that hard to figure it out after all. By loving yourself means to literally love yourself, putting yourself first, and being selfish once in a while.
In our society, you would have realised that we’re always trying to please others first because this means that we’re normal and selfless. We would always put our own needs and happiness second. We believe that by pleasing them, we’re actually loving them! Obviously, you’re living in self-denial if you say that ‘I’m happy when they’re happy.’
Now, ask yourself. Are you truly happy when you’re pleasing other by disregarding your own feelings? Are you happy when you obey your mom (because you love her) by being normal when she compares you to someone you think who’s more superior than you? Are you happy being selfless when you try to be nice and talk to your enemies just because society says that he/she will be beneficial to you in the future just because he/she’s rich? Ask yourself, am I truly happy?
Everyone deserves to be happy, and that includes YOU!
Let go of all your unhappiness, and let God take away your sufferings and replace them with guidance & care. You deserve the best because you’re a God’s child. God created you to be beautiful both inside and out. Believe that you have the power and courage within you to take a step forward, and you eventually can. Trust in yourself to be free from restrains and any limitations which are holding you back.
Whenever you’re ready, happiness awaits you.. 🙂
xx Love & Light to All xx
