If you don’t love you who else will? Love is not just an emotion, it is a verb. You have to love you enough to do right by yourself.
When you learn about early childhood development a huge part of social emotional wellness is self care. Knowing how to care for yourself by doing daily task, hygiene and choosing healthy emotional options.
Allowing a healthy relationship is a healthy emotional option. When you allow others to treat you poorly the reason could be that you feel that’s the best for you. Anytime you are choosing to settle with something damaging, you have not loved you enough. Think about it when you have that favorite toy as a child or that favorite piece of clothing, you are careful with it. You try your best to keep it clean, you are selective about who you allow to touch or wear it, that’s because you found value in it so you DO things to express that love.
Find value in yourself and learn to love you, by doing things to care for you. It’s okay to do what’s best for you, start to reflect and figure out what you truly enjoy. Take the time to do those things and allow yourself to be taken care of. Do not settle for damaging relationships, friendships, or circumstances. Do something to please you!
