“If you want to love others, I think you should love yourself first.”
Maybe you flunked that huge exam. I am sure there could be a thousand reasons as to why you are feeling bad. And I want you to know that I see you and you are not alone. You’ve made it all the way up to this point in your life.
You survived being born and made it through your first birthday. You made it through all of the bullying and all of the awkward puberty confusion stuff.
And depending on where you are in life right now, I am sure you have survived a ton of other things that could have easily killed you. But you are still here pushing forward.
Today, I would like you to think about everything that makes you valuable. What are some of the incredible things you have accomplished that people are amazed by?
What’ve you gone through that made you a stronger person? What mistakes have you made that turned out to really be a positive learning experience for you?
Please, love yourself relentlessly today. You deserve it. I guarantee you do. Your life should count for something. Even if it’s just to you alone.
We are here for only a short period of time. So, we must make it count. Everything that happens to us should serve as lessons in our journey.
Don’t dwell on some that will not really matter in the end. Pick the lessons and move on quickly. Laugh when you can and cry when you also can.
Find meaning in the things you do. You need to be serious and not serious at the same time. Remember it’s your life, and although you may have many regrets about yesterday, take courage and start again today.
