Truth for Today: You’re Worth It!

If I asked you to name all of the people and things you loved, how long would it take for you to name yourself? I remember someone asked the that same question, two minutes into my answer they stopped me and asked “When are you going to name yourself” I didn’t even realize that I hadn’t mentioned myself. that conversation made me think about how we can love and forgive everyone else EXCEPT ourselves. Seems crazy when you really think about it right!?

We can forgive and love the man who beat us, the woman who had a baby with another man, the parent that mistreated us and the friend that betrayed us but can’t seem to forgive ourselves for our wrong doings and love ourselves despite how others how others may treat us. No matter how others treat us we must love ourselves enough to forgive them. Just as un-forgiveness can cause all kinds of diseases I believe that love can help prevent them.

Take time out of your day to love on yourself! You’re worth it!

  1. This , is so true. I have always loved myself, but put myself first. I think that was my biggest mistake made in my life. We must forgive or otherwise the pain will only eat away at us. There are truly demons we have to battle, but they can be defeated.

  2. Thank you for the reminder 🙂 Having a chronic illness it’s imperative for me to remember to love myself – Self Care. This is something I need to remember to teach my children. Great post!
