The Hardest Love of them all.

Everyday I have to continue to tell myself or remind myself to love me. Its a constant reminder, diary entry, note to self that today, today I need to love myself. I realized how easy it is for me to show other people love and make them feel appreciated. But when it comes to me, the very being that I spend most time with, the most time- this very being who has seen me through it all, when it comes to loving it-her, I just don’t know how to. I treat my self like the un-wanted step child. I am never 100% happy with my self, nor do I congratulate my self on any of my accomplishments-there’s always a “but”. But yeah Jen was able to do it in 4 yrs, but Taj has managed to be in the same relationship for 3 yrs, but Devon has a full-time job and he’s 2 years younger then you. I know I don’t hate myself, I just have a hard time loving myself. And in failing to love my self, I can honestly say I have failed to notice and recognize love when it is shown or given to me. My failed attempt to love myself, has left me on a search for love in other places and other people. I always think I will love myself more, once I find love. Once I find that special individual to spend eternity with, then-then will I begin to fully love myself. I have legit put my value and worth in the hands of another human being, who in that same moment may be struggling themselves to love who they are. Its a constant battle, a constant war, but I will not wave that white-flag-no ma’m, no-sir”. I do want to love me. I want to appreciate me. I want to see the potential and beauty that I see in others, in me. I need to start treating this being like the beautiful ¬†delicate flower she is.

Growing and learning with every new sunrise and sunset. This blog is me finally taking control, because well "Nobody puts Baby in the corner"...nobody. No, but seriously just creating a space where I can share, vent and maybe brighten up a few people's day :).
