Some people say you shouldn’t change who you are for anyone. I personally, would have to disagree. If you are going to change, there is nothing wrong with doing it for yourself. Self love is one of the most important things a person can have. Before you can learn to love anyone else, or have someone love you, you should know what it’s like to look in the mirror and have your heart skip a beat at the reflection. If you were to take the time to make a list of all of the things you love, how many other things would come first on the list before you said “I love myself?” Get to a point where YOU are on the top of the list. Find the things you love, small or big, inside or out. It all counts! And then make a list of the things you don’t like, and change them! Step by step you’ll learn to love yourself more, and become the person you want to be. Change your hairstyle, change the clothes you wear, change your attitude. Be more selfless, more giving, more loving, more understanding. It may take some time, but all that matters is that you are better than you were yesterday, and you love yourself more than you loved yourself yesterday. Yes, change can be scary. But sometimes, change is everything.
Here’s to loving ourselves first.
