And I Shall Love Me

Because who better to love me than the one who knows all of my light, darkness, beauty and beast? Once upon a time I beleived it selfish to love me….not entirely selfish but a little bit.But then in the moments of treasuring myself I saw how my heart opened to everybody.I saw how clearly a day of loving me….not waiting for another to love me….not giving all of my love away…..but loving me was an incredible gift to the world and beyond.

 

 

And I Shall Love Me – Forever and Ever Amen.

  1. I guess I never thought of this way; loving myself helps me love others more but it really does make sense. When you love yourself, you are not insecure and won’t put people down…you are not worried about your inadequacies and flaws….you simply just learn to love yourself because of who you are, what you are and who created you and subsequently, you learn that you can also love people.

    1. I learned from experience but it is something I constantly have to remind myself of. I rebelled to the concept because my mother took the same idea to far. So as a mother I overcompensated to the point of utter burn out. I have four kids and I had a husband but I gave to the point of depleting myself. When you are depleted you get ugly…..and you usually can not see it because you look real good on the outside. It can be a viscous cycle.
      When you remember to love yourself and put yourself first (often but not always) you become softer. You also become a much less demanding lover, friend, and human being.
      It is a delicate balance but a lesson worth learning.
