Love of Self

Published February 26, 2015 by uncommonmommy

We often spend so much time trying to love others we neglect to take care of ourselves.  

Who can love us if we do not first love ourselves?

We all want desperately to be loved by those closest to us,  but we cannot control their emotions,  thoughts or actions.   The most we can do is to give ourselves what we crave so much.  We can choose our own happiness, acceptance, joy, emotions and self talk.

Let us first choose our own happiness,  for what is more attractive; a confident happy individual, or a needy demanding mess?

You yourself,  as much as anybody in the entire universe,  deserve your love and affection.
