Dear Self Love
Anna Marie | @just.annamarie
There was a point in time where nothing seemed to click for me. Jobs, lovers, friends just came and went, leaving me feeling inadequate for happiness. How was it that I kept exuding love, but had nothing to show for it? The answer is I didn’t love myself. Yeah, I know it sounds like a cliche, but loves it’s so true. I couldn’t put my all into anything because I wasn’t giving my all to myself.
I ran around trying to find love and happiness in everything but me. Then, cried all day and night because my “friends” hung out with me to just party, and my job was the absolute worst. I was in a one sided relationship that drained every ounce of energy I had left right out of me. My life needed a makeover and it needed one ASAP. So, I made a list of what I loved about myself and what I could improve.
I ran around trying to find love and happiness in everything but me.
Turned out I was running away from major insecurities and that was the root of my unhappiness. So guess what? I started working out, eating healthy, going to therapy, and ditched all the baggage I carried around. Now let’s be realistic, this didn’t happen in 1 day, a week, not even a month for me. Shoot, I’m still healing and loving myself years later, but I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.
Join me in being happy, love yourself enough to release your own baggage. I got your back! Remember when times are hard or even when they’re going well to tell yourself, Dear Self I love you
