Loving Yourself 1st Requires Losing Others…


This is the story of my life in the last few years. There was a point when I would hold on so tightly to the people in my life. The good, the bad, the ugly. 

No matter how badly they treated me, I would still remind myself of the “good times” we had. I would forgive them even if they didn’t ask for forgiveness.

I’m a nice person with a good heart. I used to hate that about myself. I used to hate that I cared so much. However, the more I’ve dug deeper into my spirituality, the more I learned about myself. The more I learned about God’s love for me, the more I learned to love myself. The more I find myself, the more people I lose. 

I now know that it’s all a part of God’s plan. People are only supposed to be in your life for a reason, season or a lifetime. I always knew that saying but had to learn what that lesson truly means. 

Now, I happily embrace those that stay and I readily wave bye to those that leave. Putting me 1st, fully embracing and loving who I am has made me the happiest! I’m filled with joy as I continue to learn more about me! Thank God for that lesson!
