An abundance of love, it makes you prosper.
A lack of love, it will leave you miserable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And I’m not talking about narcissistic love, where you love yourself too much. Nor am I talking about the romantic love that Disney incorrectly portrays. But I am talking about the love you have for yourself. Genuine and with pure intent, because you appreciate that God made you this way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And this very love is not always easy to come across. Or maybe you loved yourself so fiercely before you got lost. It could also be a struggle, because this love requires consistency. So maybe you must strip away the complex hate to find it within you to learn to love yourself.
I don’t believe any motivational talk or speech can make you love yourself, and I do believe it’s something you have to force yourself to do. But once it becomes this habit, it becomes a positive force that you never realized you had within you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know you might think you could never love yourself, but self-doubt is one of the pieces you need to strip. And you will come to find how much closer you have come to loving you and becoming your own best friend.
