We understand love at its best when it has been tested in the face of unforgivness. When you have absolutely every reason not to show love or compassion, but still choose to do so.
The ability to love yourself like that is the ultimate for me because that way, you get to make the best choices from an unconditional love for yourself stance.
Yourself is not perfect by always getting it right, yourself is not being exactly where you think you should be in life by now, yourself is not caring for everyone else but yourself because you want people’s approval, Yourself is not the regrets you have in your life you wish you could go back and change things, things are the way they are, accept them and move on … What happens after every ‘perminant’ change that occurs in your life is a new story to tell,you write the ending.
Yourself is all these things and more and understanding that you are perfect, just the way you are and who you growing into becoming, depends on you understanding yourself,and loving your faults because they make you , you. Different is your gift, darkness and light make up the the days of our lives and they make you. Accept it , love it , and create the best version of yourself, not the best version of what people want you to be .
The greatest love affair you will ever have is with yourself, explore every angle and never settle , never let fear or lack of faith in yourself cause you to settle for anything less than what you want in life. Let yourself be guided by the God that lives in you , and LIVE.
