Let Go and Love (Yourself)

Growing up, I have always sought after other people to validate and reassure me. Not only is this emotionally exhausting, but it is self-defeating. I look to others to fill a void in myself. But that void can never be filled with the love of another. I know I’ve heard this saying time and time again – ‘you need to love yourself first before loving someone else’.

When conditions are great, it is easy to be at peace with myself. But as soon as there’s an obstacle, I abandon all self-love and care (which is really when I need it the most).

So this post is a reminder, that sometimes we need to let go and love. Let go of negative people in your life, let go of being your biggest critic, and let go of the fear of failure. Use self-love as a vehicle to propel us towards achieving our wildest aspirations.

One thought on “Let Go and Love (Yourself)

  1. Couldn’t agree more with this. At the end of 2016 I went through a similar realization. There were so many voices in my head telling me that I couldn’t strive to be greater, happier, confident, or just be myself because I had no reason and couldn’t be “that person”. I realized that those voices were there because I was surrounding myself with negative voices. Maintaining that self-love is so crucial. Loved this read<3
