Self-Love Sunday!

Hey gorgeous!

Do you know that you are WORTHY of love and respect?

Seriously.

Think about it for a second.

Do you know that you are WORTHY of love and respect?

There’s a misconception that has been going around for years that love and respect must be earned.

That’s not entirely true.

See, there are all different kinds of love and artificial copies of love. The greatest and purest form of love is agape. Unconditional love. Godly love. This kind of love is freely given. It cannot be earned. It’s unconditional. Do you know what that means? It means that it’s not based on conditions. Terms. Your actions.

It means that the person who is giving you that love is giving you that love freely. Your actions are irrelevant. Whether we say it or not, this is the kind of unconditional, nonjudgmental, accepting love we all want.

This love is a choice. This love is action. This love is about giving, not receiving. This love, just like respect, is freely given. You are worthy of love and respect just off the GOD in YOU! So don’t let ANYONE tell you that you aren’t worthy of love and respect. Or that you are unlovable. Or that it is hard to love and respect you.

Now, you can be loved more or deeper or harder just as someone can respect you more than they respect someone else. This is a matter of growth, time, and familiarity.

BUT there is a foundation of love and respect that you deserve just by being you. Just by being alive. Just by having the breath and Spirit of God in you.

It is YOUR duty to surround yourself with people who love and respect you. YOU set the standard for how people around you treat you. If they aren’t giving you the basic love and respect you deserve… if they aren’t loving and respecting the God in you… tell ’em…

boybye

Remember, you set the standard for how people treat you. Love and respect yourself, Queen. You are somebody! 

Until next time…

Love, B.

P.S. Listen to this song by my girl (because she’s my bestie in my head) Emeli Sande and I bet it gets you lit!
