When we do not love ourselves we chase everyone away who is trying to love us. I truly believe that.
I am so new at this loving myself thing that I feel like I am going to college again. I am reading all the time and writing everyday. I have a pile of books by my bed and yesterday I got a Kindle Fire and added some free books there. I want to finally understand and practice truly loving myself. I am in charge of my own happiness and I have to live with this mind, body and spirit. Since we are one 24 hours a day it is going to go a whole lot easier if I love myself. The last couple of days have been better. I feel like my sadness has lifted and I am not craving touch like I was. I feel I am turning a corner. So I will keep working at this and doing things I love that I had set aside to love someone else. It will keep getting better. I know it will. Here is an article I read today that was helpful.
To my little sister who is a brave warrior like me. I am so proud of you. You are going to come out of this a stronger woman who can conquer anything life throws your way. I will always be here for you.
