“You need to love yourself. Love yourself so much to the point that your energy and aura rejects anyone who doesn’t know your worth.” by Billy Chapata
Although, I don’t know this author/writer, but the quote really got me thinking. Are we really being true to ourselves? Do we really love ourselves, before we proclaim that we love someone else. Or for that matter, do we really know who we are?
It took me a while to know myself, who I actually am, what I really want and what I don’t want. The last part is important and is an essential ingredient for self love.
When I interact with people around me, I observe there are many emotions, which sometimes urge us to act impulsively. One such example is, getting married at the right age, and apparently the age is fixed by the society, without any logical reasoning. Result? Well, we all have seen, divorces, separations, worst of all is the unhappy marriage, again, due to the societal pressure we don’t dare to step out of the unhappiness, we cannot take one step, towards happiness.
Why do we take such steps under someone else’s pressure? Primary reason could be, lack of self awareness, most people don’t know why they want to get married. I’ve seen marriages in which both partners are really happy and really care for each other and I’ve also seen marriages, where till the day their soul departs they really hate each other and can’t stand each other for a single moment, still they remain together! What is the point?
Even if one of the partner decides to leave the relationship, at times, it takes a toll on our self esteem and we start to question everything we do and every belief we had up to that point. Everyone knows what comes after that. Then why? why don’t we stop before taking such step? Why don’t we just take a look inwards, what’s inside our minds and heart! Understand what we want and more importantly so, why we want it or why we don’t.
Never underestimate the power of understanding yourself in order to love yourself.
