Putting Yourself First Isn’t a Bad Thing

One thing that I have learned recently is people only have power when we grant it to them. For me personally I’ve always tried to find acceptance through others. Investing time, energy, heart, sweat, and tears. Many times, getting nothing in return. So, I have come to the realization I will only give as much that is given to me. It took me a long time to understand this isn’t a bad thing, but a necessity!

Only when we focus on ourselves wholeheartedly can we truly grow as an individual. Love yourself with no equivocation and without regret. Other people at some point will notice an undeniable change in you. Your self-love will radiant like the sun on a bright summer’s day. Let others invest time into you. Just like companies are selective in their hiring process, so should you, when giving people access into your life!

Love. Peace. Self-Growth.
