Love Yourself First

love-yourself

If you follow me on social media (links below), you will know I often say Love Yourself First. Sometimes my mind is always on 100 and yes I am guilty of over analysing situations at times which leads me to question a lot of things, but what I do know is that there reaches a point that you have to go hard not as much for others, but for YOURSELF! No one will go as hard for you as you will for yourself! No matter how many people you may have around you, friends, family or even BAE, when it’s all said and done, you have to put yourself first because only you can depend on you. This is not to say that you should be selfish, no not at all, BUT you do have to love yourself, truly. That could mean different things for different people but if you can’t love yourself, how can anyone else?

I would be lying if i said I hadn’t struggled with confidence from a young girl even into my adult years, through social settings, relationships and even in some work settings but it’s time to change that! Ladies, (I know I’m not alone) and even some guys, we need to stop allowing people to walk over us, take advantage or pick us up and throw us down when they’re bored! Giving people discounts when they clearly do not appreciate you. Just take time out to tell yourself, you are a QUEEN/KING and learn to LOVE YOURSELF FIRST wholeheartedly. The sooner you do so and believe in yourself, you can give love to others in the same way. Also learn to forgive and move on. If anyone has hurt you in the past or do not end up being there as you thought they would, that’s their loss not yours.

LOVE YOURSELF FIRST…MY MANTRA…WHAT’S YOURS?

    Lovely words, definitely something to always remember, especially as it’s harder to get down than it seems!
