I know you spend time regretting all the things you have done and all the pain you have caused. But just takes these memories as lessons and learn them well so that you never make the same mistakes again and can keep others from doing so as well.
4. I can also see where you are coming from
Remember to be grateful to have had the experiences that you did have. It might have been a hard and difficult time but the past taught you all the lessons you needed to know to become this better version of yourself. You have become much more than the person you were then and this change also serves to help you accept the love you will soon find.
5. Yes, you have flaws
None of us is perfect. You will always have some imperfections and that is okay because you would not be human otherwise. When you think about all the things that make you doubt the person you are, all the things you now know you should have done differently, all the choices you want to be undone, all the wrong men you’ve dated, just remember that these experiences were essential.
You have flaws, but not too broken to be loved. They were essential because, without them, you would not be the wonderful soul that you grew up to be. When the time is right, you’ll meet the person you are destined for.
6. You are worthy of so much more than mediocrity
There’s no need for you to settle down with someone who upsets you most of the time and tries to manipulate you for their own games. Instead of thinking you are too broken to be loved, look for someone who will truly love you for the person that you are, who comes up with a variety of ways to show you just how much he cares for you every single day.
Don’t listen to that voice in your head that is constantly putting you down. It is not telling you the truth and it will not help you be better. Give yourself the gift of forgiveness. You must first be able to forgive yourself if you ever want to move one. As soon as you do that, your life will transform. Be proud of the marks that your struggles have left and look at yourself kindly when you look in the mirror. You will find love and respect because others will be able to see that you have braved your demons and won against them.
This has been said much better by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross:
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who know defeat. Know to suffer. Know struggle. Know a loss. And have found their ways out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation. A sensitivity. And an understanding of life that fills them with compassion. Gentleness. And a deep loving concern. Beautiful people don’t just happen.”
