I choose the titled knowing yourself & loving yourself for this blog because the words are powerful. There are so many people that will sacrifice their own happiness just to please others( that’s sound like a recipe for disaster).
You can’t make anyone else happy if you’re not happy with you first. People spend so much time trying to please everyone else but will ignore themself. Your very own star player (you) how are you going to try to please everyone else but push your feeling morals and believes to the side and still make your self happy you can’t if you believe that you’re lying to your self. To know yourself is to be honest with yourself to shine in your own truth and except your own faults.
I think the serenity pray said it best god grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference it all starts with you. You can’t truly love someone if you don’t love yourself first know your own worth. Asked yourself when you start looking for a mate what do you look for first in a person do you look inward to a person heart and soul, or do you look outward at beauty looks and big body parts ( what ever you like).
When you’re looking to start a relationship what type of person are you look for a materialistic person or maybe a self-indulgent individual with that you get the lies games and immaturity. Or do you look inward to a person heart morals values honest and mature.
Asked yourself this when you in a relationship are you the victim or are you the bully what I mean by this is are you the person who keep complaining about how someone is treating you. Keep lying to you being disrespectful putting your feeling on hold cheating on you (the victim) or are you the type of person who stand up for their beliefs ( right or wrong) what todays society like to call ( the bully).
Everything starts with you. You are the question and the answer. You may ask why do people keep lies to me ignore your feeling mistreated me (the question) because you haven’t required them to treat you any different and you allow it. ( the answer) When you keep doing the same thing but you are looking for different results that’s insane .
Have you ever been in a relationship with someone and you tell them you don’t appreciate something but they keep doing it over and over again and you look at them like why don’t they get it maybe it’s not them maybe it’s you. If you tell a person the same thing 356 what you think they going to get it 357 may be you should change your mindset. People can only do what we let them do. Everything starts with you love yourself first and the rest will follow.
