Do You Love You?
I love me. I don't always like me, but I do love me. Why do I love me? Because, in spite of my imperfections, I am what I am.
I have taken the time to get to know me and figured out my likes and dislikes. What about you? Do you really know you? Do you know what you like or dislike? Do you think it is important for you to inform others of your fondness of you? I do.
I think it is of vital importance for you to tell others of the things that move you. Some will call that bragging or being conceited or even cocky. I call it convinced of what I know to be true about me. When we allow people to stand in the way of us moving, that is our fault. When you love something, you cherish it, you nurture it, you protect it. For some of us, our actions are not showing that we love ourselves. We allow ourselves to be mistreated, to be abused, to be deprived, to be neglected, to be taken advantaged of or taken for granted.
We generally feel love for someone or something after we have spent some time with them. Take a look at you and tell yourself that you love you. Send yourself some balloons or flowers that say 'I Love You'. Write yourself a note about how great you are. Take some time to celebrate you. It is my belief that we need to spend more time with ourselves so we can learn to love ourselves more.
