There was a time in my life where I was very unhappy. I was in an abusive long distance relationship, I worked 7 days a week, I ate pizza every day, I barely slept, I did nothing for myself. People can find themselves just going through each day. It’s like you are a robot. You go through the motions but really feel nothing. It’s really quite awful.
One day it’s like I just woke up. You don’t have to accept something like that’s all there is to life. For years my intuition tried making me choose other things. I ignored everything inside. I turned off my inner voice. Not anymore. Today was the day I seen myself in the mirror and heard my inner voice again. I am worth it. I deserve love. I will have respect for myself. Just like that I am alive.
Choosing to love myself was the single most important thing I have done for myself. Once I chose love everything changed. When I was nothing but a shell of a human I let people walk all over me. I didn’t stand up for myself. I didn’t expect respect. Then it’s like a light switch was turned on. I let things go that were negative to me. I was a person again. I began to feel. It was amazing. It was like I was reborn.
I wake up every day and I choose love. Life does not get better on its own, it gets better with change. Every day we have a choice to make. Choose love . Choose respect. Choose compassion. It’s worth it.
