Self-love, self-respect, self-worth,there is a reason they all start with self because you can’t find them in anyone else.
It’s ok to want your own happiness. It’s ok to care about yourself the most. It’s ok to do what’s healthy for you. The most important day is the day when you decide you are good enough for u. It’s the day u set yourself free. You r both good and bad, messy and complex and still worthy of compassion, love n acceptance. Your worth is not contingent upon other people’s statements, acceptance of u…it’s something inherent.
You exist, therefore u matter…You r allowed to asserts your needs n take up the space. You’re allowed to voice your feelings n thoughts and you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes u feel otherwise.
Self-care is not about being selfish, thinking for nobody in life or having no one….but it’s something we call self-partnership. Where you’re the one taking care of yourself, nurturing, protecting, motivating n loving yourself. You carry so much love in your heart…just give some to yourself. Whatever u do, never run back to what broke u. So don’t be afraid of solitude that comes with raising your standards. Self worth isn’t something to strive for. It’s already there, like buried treasure, hidden beneath the layers of doubt. Strive only to love yourself then only u’ll realize how right u r.
Just embrace your self-worth and like the moon…we must go through the phases of empitiness to feel whole again. So, be rooted in your being that nobody’s absence or presence can disturb your inner peace.
Will it be easy? Nope…
Will it worth it? Absolutely…
So, just Breathe and do take care of yourself.
