So… I woke up this morning and I had an idea. The idea – to blog about something most people wouldn’t know I struggle with personally. To blog about something that a lot of people struggle with, but are sometimes too embarrassed to admit.
Now… you may say well I know I’m cute.
I’m NOT insecure.
So… I love myself, right?
Well… there’s a lot that goes into loving self. It goes beyond finding yourself attractive physically. Although some people can’t even do that.
Do you value yourself? Do you respect yourself? Do you have boundaries in your relationships? Are you practicing self care? Do you have more good habits than bad? Are you selective of the energies you have around you?
Most importantly… are you practicing what I call the relational trinity in a healthy manner? Woah. That’s dope. I need to copyright that because I don’t want anyone to steal it before I blow up. Lol. The relational trinity™ (pahaha) is basically the act of loving God first. Then self. Then others.
Loving self has gotten such a bad rap. People think if you love yourself you’re selfish. Arrogant. But that’s not the case. Yes, there are some instances where shallow, jaded people use loving self as a means to justify their selfishness, but the true act of loving self is simply seeing yourself as God sees you. Valuing yourself as God values you. Caring for yourself as God would care for you.
There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with loving yourself.
How can you love others if you don’t love yourself?
The bible says that we are to love God first, and that the second greatest command is that we love our neighbor as we LOVE OURSELVES. How do we skip over that <—?
You can’t love your neighbor properly if you don’t love yourself properly.
A lot of our relationships with men and women are failing because we are loving them more than we love ourselves. We are putting them above ourselves and God.
I’m done with that!
That causes too much pain and disappointment. I’m about to get this thang right by getting the act of the relational trinity right.
Will you join me?
I will be blogging on a more consistent basis, but every Sunday it is my goal from this point forward to blog about self love.
