Self- Love💕😘💖

Self-love is a feeling only the individual can experience.

Can you Image you have a bag full of coins? This bag consists of dimes, nickels, quarters, pennies, and dollar coins. The bag is full of change. However, you notice there are only a few dollar coins in this bag.  You start feeling a little disappointed. You begin to ask yourself, what can I do to obtain more dollar coins?

After a couple of days pass, you start to appreciate the coins you have collected. It doesn’t matter if you have a few dollar coins or a lot. What matters is any change you have collected thus far is valuable money.

Top 10 Coins Worth Collecting - Investment List

Self-love is like coins. You have one quality you focus on the most. One day something happens, and you must change your focus and appreciate everything about yourself. You begin to love yourself. Everything from the good, bad, and ugly makeup who you are now.

Self-love is when you can guard your heart against harsh words and feeling from others.

Self-love is being humble while forgiving and loving your enemy.

Self-love is being at peace with God, yourself, and others.

Self-love is demanding respect while providing the highest level of respect for others.

Self-love is your calm in the storm.

Self-love is being able to put your faith in God when others are determined to be bitter toward you.

Without Self-love, you become lost to the world around you.

We all need to learn how to love ourselves before we can truly love someone else.

I thank God for the life lessons we have to endure.

I will always love him first and foremost.

It’s has been a minute so here we go…

1) If you reach out to someone and try to express your feelings, and somehow it goes sideways. You need to ask yourself, is this something you want to explore further or park it and carry on with life?
Learn how to set limits/boundaries/thresholds on what you will tolerate.
Example: If I say you have met my threshold, know that I am putting you on time out for a couple of days or longer. Depending on who you are; It might be a permanent status.


2) If you ask me about voting and I don’t offer my answer or opinion, it’s because I don’t feel like entertaining this conversation.
Example: Hey, so are you voting? Who are you voting for this election? I do not want to talk about this, and we need to change the subject or end the conversation.
Dictate what you are willing to discuss. If you are uncomfortable, then let the person know. If they insist on engaging in this conversation, well walk away.


3) It is ok to laugh at people, but not to their faces.
Example: You may get a call or text message that has you talking to yourself. Just laugh and let it go.

Somethings need to be said
