With all the love I give my friends and family, I fear that I don’t have any more love to give to myself. I feel like my heart is so full that there’s no more space for Jessica. I was having one of those my long conversation with my younger sister and she told me that I need to save some love for myself and I’ve been thinking about it for a whole year!!
There is no reason as to why I used to put others before me, I am Jessica and Jessica has a big heart. I am human. I am selfless. I am still the girl with the big heart, but I have learnt to give myself more love. I don’t love people for them to love me back but then I needed love myself and the only person that could give that to me is me!! That’s just why I learnt to love myself more.
I had to save myself from becoming that girl that gives what she doesn’t have. And beloved reader, it is perfectly okay to love yourself. Love others but save some for yourself. Love others, but never forget to love yourself. Love is something that never runs out but keep some aside for yourself.
Don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first. Self-love has the power to save the world. The more we love ourselves, the more we give others genuine love. After all, we cannot give what we don’t have. Speak to yourself the way you want others to speak to you. Love yourself enough to leave that toxic relationship. Love yourself enough to do things that will improve your life. Self-love is not selfish love.
I will end this post with the words of my 18-year-old sister “…you have so much love in your heart to give, save some for yourself.” See you in my next post darling.
