Of course this title makes you think I am the husband, lover or partner of that special woman who has my heart. That this is a cry out to that person to never stop loving me and keep my heart forever.
Well, it is not. I am talking to ME, to myself. I AM that woman. I am the one who is speaking to that beautiful and amazing woman that is me and that has my heart. Yes, I never want to stop loving MYSELF for the woman that I am.
“If you have the ability to love, love yourself first.” Charles Bukowski
- How would you feel if you would promise yourself to never stop loving yourself?
- What would change in your life if you could always trust yourself to have your heart, to love yourself no matter what and to treat yourself as your number one lover?
You deserve your own unconditional and eternal love more than anyone else. You are worthy and deserving of your own devoted love. By loving yourself every single second of the day, you not only give yourself inner strength and balance but you certainly will love someone else out of love instead of sacrifice.
“Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have.” Robert Holden
Your self-worth and feeling of being “good enough” or even just “enough” cannot depend on other people’s love. Just give that feeling to yourself. It is a fact that just by being born in this world with all the qualities and flaws you have, you can be the best version of yourself. YOU are enough!
Ask yourself to never forget how very special you are. To treat yourself as if you were your own partner, best friend or lover. To never criticize yourself for the mistakes you make and to NEVER stop loving yourself exactly the way you are.
“Self-love and self-care are not selfish, they are your birthright.” Danielle Sax
Do you still believe that practicing conscious self-love and self-care is selfish? It is an ingrained self-destructive impulse or pattern that needs to be acknowledged and worked on because it prevents you from experiencing true love in your life.
- How can you truly love someone else if you do not love yourself?
- Would it not be a good idea to first ask ourselves in marriage (or partnership), before we ask anyone else?
Simply giving our heart to ourselves and promising to never stop loving ourselves, in good or bad days, in sickness or in health.
“True love only comes when self-love is already there.” Randi G Fine
It is clear that we would be happier adults, feeling more confident and fulfilled. We would certainly build better loving relationships with others and be an excellent example to our children.
Let us learn to love ourselves so we can be more open and compassionate to others, and so we can take down the walls that limit who we can be and what we can contribute.
Please have your own heart and never stop loving yourself.
You are worth it!
