Iâve been on this random kick with asking my Facebook peeps their thoughts on matters of love and dating. So the question I proposed was this âDo you think getting to a place of loving yourself well is an easy task?â Naturally the answers varied which I love and rightly so as we all have different stories to form our answers from.
So what about you, do you find loving yourself an easy task? Listen thereâs no right or wrong answer here, the only answer is the truth. Have you ever even thought about this? Hopefully if youâre a regular
on my site then the answer would be âDuh, yes..because you talk about it all the time!â But if youâre new, Iâm asking it now so go ahead and answer it.
What does that even mean? Well how would you love someone else? Do you and are you willing to do the same for yourself? I had a client that we really pressed through on this topic and them loving them-self. Notice I used the phrase âpressed throughâ. I hope youâve gathered that this was no easy task.
You see when youâve been programmed throughout your life that youâre nothing, you can always be more then what you are, because clearly what you already are is not enough and so on, self love can look too far out there. It seems unattainable, so you donât even try. The truth is, it is attainable.
Growing up in a religious background I learned two things. You love God and you love people. What I didnât know was how to love myself. The journey of figuring and APPLYing that, I have spent a lifetime working towards, spending time with counselors, reading books, and APPLYINGâ¦and APPLYINGâ¦and APPLYING. I should just sign a life long commitment with my coaches, because I am committed for the rest of my life to deepen the love I have for myself.
Have you ever thought about going on the journey of learning to love yourself well? If so, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or click the pic below. Oh and if you were waiting to fall in love with someone, hoping that they would give you everything you need, let me forewarn youâ¦ IT.WILL.NEVER.HAPPEN. Jerry Maguire screwed a lot of us with âyou complete meâ phrase. You see, you canât give out what youâre unwilling to give to yourself.
