MAKE YOURSELF A PRIORITY



Right now, ask yourself: “Do I love myself enough to never lower my standards for the wrong reasons?” Find the strength to say yes!

Life is about living honorably. It’s about doing the right thing, for you, no matter what, even when nobody else knows or understands. At the end of the day, your reputation is what other people know about you. Your honor is what you know about yourself.

You have to admit, you’ve spent a lot of your life subconsciously belittling yourself. Thinking you’re not enough. Trying to be someone else. Someone who fits in, who’s less sensitive, needy, and flawed. Someone who is less you. Because you felt broken and didn’t want to scare people away. You wanted to make a good impression and have people like you. To be seen as worthy and lovable so you could feel healed and whole. And for the longest time, behind a facade of fake smiles, you have inadvertently betrayed yourself for the purpose of pleasing everyone else. And for longest time, your heart has ached.

But now you’re seeing things differently. Belittling yourself just doesn’t make sense anymore. And more than that, you now realize no matter what you do or how you change, some people will never like you anyway.

You now realize you have to start doing things for the right reasons.

Not because it’s what you think everyone else needs, but because you finally know yourself to be worthy of your own love and care.

Not because other people approve of you, but because you are breathing your own air, thinking your own thoughts, and occupying a space no one else ever could.

You may have been beaten down by adversity, or sidetracked by rejection, but you are not broken. So don’t let others convince you otherwise. Heal yourself by refusing to belittle yourself. Choose to stand out, to do what you know in your heart is right. Choose to appreciate yourself for who you are, accepting your quirks entirely and sincerely. Make self-love a daily ritual.

Truth be told, you won’t always be a priority to others, and that’s why you need to be a priority to yourself. Learn to respect yourself, take care of yourself, and become your own support system. Your needs matter. Start meeting them. Don’t wait on others to choose you. Choose yourself today…
