Since today is #SelfLoveSunday, I felt that this was a necessary photo quote to post. Too often, people go looking for someone to love them just in order to fill that little empty space in your heart. You know, that one when you lack self-love that where no matter what you do, you can’t get it to be “full”? Yeah, well. The reason why you cannot fill that void solely off of someone else’s love is because AT LEAST a part of you has to love yourself in order to fill it. That empty space cannot be filled by anyone else. Self-love is such an important concept, which is why I speak of it so often.. I never knew how to love myself up until my last break up. Oh goodness, can’t even believe I’m opening up about how this all came about right now.. Honestly can say, this is the first time I’ve placed a time frame around it all. But, I think talking about things is always the best way to get them out and to make them possibly helpful for someone else to understand their own difficulties sometimes. It’s a shame that it took almost 19 years for me to learn how to love myself, but, it is what it is. Anyway, after my last break-up, I was SO fed up of it all. The men of my past seemed to care, don’t get me wrong, and some even claimed that they “loved” me too. But there was still that void there, that empty space I keep mentioning. So I guess, whether or not love ever came into play from them, I would have never believed it anyway. I am a girl who grew up in a broken home. I’m not going to go into details with all of that, but when I used to have no contact with my father, I had it set in my head “If my own father cannot even find it in himself to love me, then no one ever possibly can”… Oh goodness, another thing I don’t discuss much. Well anyway, yeah. That was my outlook on up until I found a love for myself. Oh, and by the way, my father & I are on good terms now. He missed a lot of me growing up that he will never ever get back, but that’s all in the past. He is still my father at the end of the day, so I still love him with every part of my heart. Back to my main point again though— You CANNOT rely on anyone else to fill that empty space in your heart because only YOU can fill it. No other love, present or not present, could fill that void. Not too many people have a grasp on that idea yet, but I’m hoping that a world-wide self-love revolution will be enough to change that. You are capable of being loved— by others, AND yourself. You just gotta keep at it. If you need more information on finding that self-love or tips on how to do so, please feel free to get in contact with me. I’d gladly help anyone as much as I can, but again, self-love (as a whole) is an inside job. Don’t forget that. So I’ll end this with my favorite saying of all time— NEVER forget to love yourself. And if you can’t yet, keep at it. It’s a process, sadly, that can be pretty time-consuming. We are all beautiful in our own ways.. Don’t lose sight on your inner beauty just because of what others have to say about you. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, AND YOU ARE CAPABLE OF LOVE. <3
