I hear it all the time, ‘learn to love yoursef’, and I’ve always thought what a bunch of nonsense. However since embarking on my new lifestyle, loving one’s self has become an issue that I have to face whether I like it or not!
I look around and realize my life reflects the decisions I’ve made and how much I love myself. For example the man I choose to wake up with every morning for the rest of my life, the food I choose to eat, the habits I choose to induldge in. All of these things once examined reflect how much I love myself.
If you ending up getting treated like crap by the man you wake up with every morning, then you allow that behaviour so love your self enough to set your expectations. If the food you eat is all brown and you look round and old, you allowed that. And if you find yourself lighting up a cigarette or having a little tipple every now and then ask yourself what am I avoiding.
Facing upto our problems has to be one of the most challenging things one can do. Because in order to change, sometimes you have to accept the truth and that is no one is to blame for your life but you. I remember a quote from Joan Collins book, where she said she treated her life like a movie, when someone got on her nerves she’d just edit them out.
So this is me taking a good look at myself and loving myself enough to know what I need to do to put things right. One of the biggest things standing in the way of loving myself was me! Which is why I titled this blogg you should let me love you. I’ve decided to love myself as much as I do other people.
