How do you feel about yourself?
Are you a priority in your own life?
If your best friend spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to continue being your best friend?
If you find it hard to respect yourself then other people will not respect you as well.
Your self-talk is so very important.
The way you treat yourself and what you say or focus on about yourself on a daily basis creates the person that you are and who you’re going to be.
It’s time to make your own needs and desires a priority.
It’s interesting to think about when two people first meet each other they usually have their own interests and talents that set them apart; that makes them stand out.
These interest and differences are what attract you to each other.
Often in the process of growing closer together in a relationship, one of those individuals may begin to lose their individuality and almost become an extension of the other person.
They tend to take on their partners interests and talents leaving their own behind often losing themselves in the process.
The very thing that attracted you to each other now becomes lost because of loving each other so much and losing yourself in the process.
This can be a painful awakening in the long run.
Although it’s wonderful to become close and adopt each other’s interests it’s also important to continue to develop yourself individually and your own personal interests.
So from this point forward make it a mental priority to think of yourself and talk to yourself positively and with great respect.
Make your life and desires a priority.
Be kind to yourself and others will be kind to you.
