Loving yourself first is one of the most important things in life. When you have self love, it radiates in everything you do, say and think. Don’t spend time trying to be like someone else you see on social media, chances are that person is trying to be someone else too. I spent many years in a relationship that did not serve me, that destroyed my self worth and made me question everything about me. I spent those years trying to please the person I was with, but nothing I did was ever enough. Once I finally let go of that relationship and started discovering my true self again through self awareness and self care, I started loving myself again, I was growing and evolving and things around me was evolving too. I felt a new sense of freedom and relaxation, I developed a personal relationship with God, changed my body through nutrition and exercise, elevated my mind through research and education, my stress was gone and other people’s opinion of me no longer mattered. Once I stopped trying to please people and focused on myself, they started trying to please me. I was radiating joy and love and they wanted to be a part of it.
Even the people that appear to have it all together have something about themselves that they want to change. It is not your job to make someone else happy, only them can make themselves happy.
