There's Gotta be More

July 31st, 2015, 10pm

Had I been able to convince myself sooner that self love is an essential asset to everything in life, I may have saved myself from a lot of unnecessary sorrow.

I have spent my whole life putting others before me—that is what I was taught. Perhaps, it is what many of us were taught to do. But it became so habitual that I some how lost myself amidst.

People would ask me, “what are you passionate about?”

I often responded with a laugh.

It wasn’t until that strained, subsequent silence of anticipation that I had begun to realize that I really didn’t have an answer.

I never thought of myself as the accommodating type, but after numerous times of initiating conversations or scheduling dates, it occurred to me that I was constantly giving everyone else the time of day.

I became so wrapped up in everyone else. Trying so hard to keep contact and keep everyone close to me—and yet I was left with no energy to put towards myself.

People are going to do what they want to do. So, why can’t I be one of those people as well?

I am going to spend more time with myself.

I give back in so many ways, that it doesn’t feel selfish to ask for a little more love towards myself.

As we all know, things are easier said than done. So, if anything comes out of this, I hope I can inspire someone to realize just how important it is to give yourself the love you deserve.

Craig, Emma and Claudia said thanks.
