My question to you today is, Do you love yourself enough to love yourself?
If so why do you allow yourself to take the backseat?
Why put him ahead of you?
A man who truly loves you, a man who truly respects you would not allow you to put him first.
He would undoubtedly put you first, above his own needs and expect you to do the same.
Regardless of who “he” is, husband, fiancée, boyfriend or just a “friend”.
If he values you and respects you, your wellbeing will always come before his.
A smart man knows and understands that an unhappy woman can bring down an entire empire.
That’s a fact.
If your man is ready to hold you up then he will put you above all else.
Now, with that being said, men, I am not saying to sacrifice your own well-being but this woman is the heart of your home or at least you’re hoping she will be, right? If not why are you wasting her time and yours?
As the heart, the center, she needs to beat freely, without feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
Protect her, take care of her as you would your own heart.
Women, don’t use this man, don’t abuse his love.
As his woman, while you are the heart, he is the head.
Appreciate him and give him clarity, give him confidence.
A good man and a good woman can accomplish more together than apart.
No one wants to be single forever but no one should feel trapped or have to take a back seat.
So I say, love yourself enough.
Take care of you so you can take care of him but don’t self-sacrifice.
Don’t feel sorry for a man who can’t feel sorry enough for himself to make a change.
When you can’t figure out why you’re still in the relationship ask yourself, is this healthy, am I loving myself by staying in this relationship or am I being self-destructive?
Ladies, love yourself enough to love yourself.
