She had been hurt in the past. But it was never too late to fall in love and have a caring relationship with herself. – Queenisms™
Make no mistake. We will, or already have, all experience disappointment and hurt at some time in our lives. Having an open heart that is filled with love also means being vulnerable if the object of our affections is not as steadfast – through purpose or through no fault of their own. We cannot control the thoughts or deeds of those around us. We only have governance over the way in which we react and respond. So often, we find that reaction is to blame oneself, feel as though we are not enough, and second guess our worthiness. These negative thoughts are untrue. No one is perfect but you are most assuredly not unworthy of love. Learning to love yourself means many things including setting strong boundaries, speaking kindly about yourself, treating yourself with respect and care and above all, believing in your innate worth. You will never disappoint yourself in that kind of love.
