“Many of us were taught to put ourselves last, and as a consequence we attracted feelings of being unworthy and undeserving. As those feelings lodged within us, we continued to attract more life situations that had us feeling more unworthy and not enough. You must change that thinking.”
Recently I have had someone come into my life and they have altered my world so much. It’s crazy how much I have changed in the last couple weeks. I have changed for the better and I couldn’t be any happier with myself than I am now. She has taught me that I should love myself and I should be happy with myself above anything else. I don’t need anyone else to be happy. I make myself happy. Above all else I don’t need a man in my life to make me happy. I don’t need others to accept me, I just need to be able to accept myself.
Maybe you’re sitting here reading this and you think it sounds conceited, but I have never been this content with myself. I love myself and I don’t need anyone else. I recently just got out of a relationship, and usually one of the first things I do is go to another guy to fill the void of being alone. There is nothing wrong with being alone. It took me this long to realize that, but I am so happy that I finally did. I am overall so much happier with myself than I was even a couple weeks ago.
Learning to love yourself first is something everyone should do. You should realize how beautiful you are inside and out. Don’t feel like you need a man in your life to make you happy. Learn how to be alone first and then you can allow someone in your life that makes you happy, but just remember that if someone else is the reason for you being happy, that reason can be taken from you. So be independent first. Learn to be alone. One of the reasons I always feel like I need to jump right into being with another guy right after I get out a relationship is probably because I have never experienced just being alone.
So yes. I am learning to love myself above anything else. I’m still taking it day by day, but that’s the beauty about life sometimes. It’s unexpected. I’m still trying to figure out myself and what I want in life, and maybe someday someone will join me for the ride, but for now I am perfectly content with being alone. I’m only 21. I don’t need to have everything figured out yet.
Just me, myself, and I.
I love me.
