I like to be loved. Some people go great lengths to not be loved. There was a time I thought I didn’t deserve love but then over time I realized I deserved love just as much as anyone else did. I’m not ashamed to admit I want to be adored and appreciated. It doesn’t have to be by everyone. Heck, a strong three or four people would be plenty. It’s weird to write it, but I just wanted to humbly admit it. Don’t we all want to be adored and loved?
I can be a lot to ask others especially when they haven’t learned to love themselves yet. So instead of placing the responsibility of being loved on those around me, I do it for myself. I try my best to intentionally love myself daily especially the little things like meal planning, journaling, writing. I also designate Sundays for my self love day. It’s not always easy but I do know everything works out much better when I set time aside to intentionally love me. I know for a fact I’d choose me because I’ve worked my ass off to become someone I want to be around.
I liked to be loved, so that’s what I do.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.Lao Tzu
