Validate Yourself

You ever been to church and felt like the preacher was talking to you directly and just felt like everything he said was what you needed to hear? That's how I was on Sunday. Don't get it twisted, I'm far from a saint, but I do try to go to church when I can. Naturally for Valentine's Day every church message was revolved around love. I'm used to hearing the "love is/love is not" sermon every year; however, I was happily surprised this year!

The message was about loving yourself and God before attempting to love anyone else. He went on to say how you should let yourself know how much you appreciate you instead of waiting for someone else to validate how special you are. Most people don't know this but for the longest time, I was extremely insecure. I'm almost positive I know where this deep rooted issue started, but I won't go into details. Anyway, all my life people have told me how attractive I was, smart, etc but it just wasn't enough. I needed those compliments to make me feel better about myself. I had this CONSTANT yearning to be in a relationship, just to feel loved and appreciated by someone… anyone.

  1. Right me too! And I've been told to love myself first soo many times but I guess it was just something I needed to see for myself. But I guarantee we both came out stronger than we ever were before!


  2. Ok….so i'm late reading this post, but I think I was supposed to read it at just the right time. I must admit that I wear these shoes on a daily basis. I've tried to take them off, but it seems like that they are conformed to my feet. I've struggled with this for many years. Thanks for the post Cuz —- Nikki
