Love Your Self
I have not been able to get a very good sleep because something has been running through my head. This is going to sound weird but it is ok to love your self.
Love your self, now, for who you are, despite your past.
Love your self enough to realize it is ok to be married to someone who is better than you.
Love your self and realize it is ok to be happy.
Love your self, realize you deserve all the blessings of Heaven.
Love your self, don’t except less.
Love your self, you deserve the best.
Love your self, protect and cherish what you have instead of thinking you don’t deserve it.
It is ok to love your self and most likely others feel the same way.
Love your self – Don’t give up, just because it’s hard.
If all of this sounds weird, than most likely you have grown up in a loving family. I know many individuals who think they don’t deserve anything better them. Many women feel like they don’t deserve the man they are married to. Many men that feel like no body should love them because of their past.
Each of us is like a new table, when we come into this world we start to get some scratches, bumps, serious scars. We may even get pieces of our wood completely torn away. As we grow we start notice these scars and think less of ourselves, than one day someone finds our trashed table and picks us up. We don’t have a clue what they are doing and why but they actually start loving us. They start putting pieces of wood back in that were completely ripped away and then they start polishing us. They start telling us things like: Your beautiful; your sexy; your kind; your …
We immediately go into defensive mode saying, “They don’t really know me because they wouldn’t love me and keep polishing me if the did know me.”
The love and care continues.
We actually start to believe them and allow them to completely restore us and then we get tossed back outside; not in a hateful or disrespectful way but that person had to go on to find a different table. Then one day someone else finds this old broken table and starts polishing it again and they really love this table so they decide to make it theirs and go get a license declaring to the world that you belong to them. They continue to polish and fill in all of the cracks with the finest laquers and make this table even more beautiful and wanting.
Again, the table is thinking, “How could anyone want this broken up table enough to declare it to the world? I don’t deserve this and they start thinking that they should move on with their life away from this person because they deserve much more.”
The actual truth is the value of the table never changed. The table was valueable from the very beginning but it was our own minds that said there was no value.
You are that table and you are valuable. Don’t Forget!
(I am not a writer but I have had this running through my mind all night, something similar. I hope you understand what the meaning is. Love your self it is ok. Don’t walk away from things when it gets tough. Face them head on together.) Also, I know that yourself is actually one word but I wanted to really point out the two which focus on the individual.
