I have actually already written a post before (in 2019) that dealt with the importance of loving yourself.
The interesting thing however is that I have been learning just how much of a journey learning to love yourself is! There are so many nuances to it. You learn to love your body the way that it is, then you may learn to love your face, then maybe your personality, then your abilities or talents (and the proficiency level that you are at). There is so much to it.
As I said in my first post for this year, I feel as if God wants to work on my internal this year and one of the things that I have been noticing is that I am learning to embrace my true personality 😊. I love to laugh (really loudly) but usually I would be soooooo very self conscious of it. Lately however I have been feeling this tug to JUST LAUGH and not care what my neighbors (or anyone really) may be thinking.
I know that sounds funny (lol) but I really worry alot about what my neighbors (and others – friends, coworkers, you name it) think about the things that I may do. I therefore would tend to conform my behaviour so that I don’t annoy anyone.
Why do I care so much? Why should I care so much?! (Of course you already know the answer lol). I shouldn’t!!!!! So I have been consciously working on allowing myself to just be me.
We should never assume that we have worked on everything – ask God to show you what you may need to still work on or even let go of. His answers may surprise you.
This new year of 2021 I want to let go and be free in every way! And this is simply the first step.
What is it that you may be struggling to love about yourself? What are you hoping to work on for 2021? Share it in the comments! I would love to hear from you and it’s always so good for others to know that they are not alone in the struggle. Let’s be a source of encouragement for one another 😊
Much love to you all and have a blessed weekend and week! ❤
