“It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.” – Mandy Hale
Is love as magical as we are told? Do we get a “happily ever after”? Or do we get to a crash course on life? Life is not a fairy tale. And love is NOT the most important thing in the world despite what romantic novels and Hollywood romcoms might have you believe.
What is of supreme importance is self-love. Loving yourself, understanding yourself, and respecting yourself are of utmost importance for your survival. Doing exactly what your heart desires (despite how weird or crazy it may sound) is your duty and responsibility.
You owe it to yourself. You are more important to yourself than anything else in the world and that is exactly how things should be. Love yourself first and foremost. Only then you can love another person.
By Decree of Self Ownership For My Lovers
Written By Maria Palumbo Originally Appeared On Rebelle Society
“F.L.Y. First Love Yourself. Others will come next.”
Love yourself first, even if you’re madly in love with someone else. Love yourself, even if you have screwed things up. Even if you have made a lot of mistakes. Love yourself because that’s the only way to love your partner. Love yourself because that’s the only way to be happy. Because that’s the only way to live.
You are not allowed to love someone else more than you love yourself. You need to put your needs, wants, dreams and goals before your loved ones’. So choose to love yourself first before you chose to love him more. Self-love will make you more attractive and bring more attraction to your relationship.
Appreciate yourself, your shortcomings, your flaws, and your mistakes. Appreciate everything that makes you, YOU! Be authentic. Be yourself.
It’s possible to lose yourself in a relationship, but in a healthy relationship, you find yourself. Self ownership in a relationship is actually keeping yourself true in every relationship, it’s time to take charge of your life and your relationship to increase your chances of happiness with your partner
