Are you feeling drained?
Why do we feel that if we love ourselves, that it is selfish?
Selfishness is when we manipulate and deliberately harm another to get ahead or compete against them.
When we love ourselves fully, we find this amazing inner strength we never thought we had.
When we get caught up in needing to be loved, we find ourselves opening up our empathic centers, lowering our boundaries and giving away our love to another because we feel their pain.
Their lack of love.
But, realize that when we open up without boundaries, without the love for ourselves, we allow ourselves to be victimized. And we may not even be aware of doing it. Others' may not even know that they are doing it to us, until it's too late.
Until we become trapped.
We cannot fully love others and be that fountain over flowing with that love, until we fully love ourselves.
We cannot help another with their oxygen mask, unless we take a breath from it first.
We need to teach it to the children as Whitney sings it so beautifully.
We are the model. What do our children see in us?
What lessons in love are we showing them?
Show them that they deserve love and to love themselves as you live your life as the model. Show them that you matter.
That they matter.
That the greatest love of all is inside of me.
When we feel that love for ourselves grow, we become an amazing conduit of unconditional love, and others' will flock to you.
Love yourself with strong boundaries.
If you do not love it, let it go.
You may be helping another find love by doing just that.
all my love,
