“We accept the love we think we deserve.”
When I talk about love I’m speaking all kinds of love. I’m not talking mainly about two loving each other…There is family love, friends love… etc
To be the person who has a hard time accepting “love” is truly awful.. because somehow you feel you are not worthy of this love. And you are always pushing away anyone who tries to share good feelings with you.
You should work on having a sense of self worth.. because:
> nobody will respect you, if you don’t respect yourself.
> No one will love you, if you don’t love yourself.
The way you treat yourself sets an example on how others should treat you.
Having a balanced self worth will attract those who appreciates you and love you no matter what.
You don’t want to be one of those…:
> Those who think they’re worthless!
>And those who think that they’re better than everyone else.
Both types will not settle for anything Because feeling worthless wil make you think you deserve nothing and feeling you’re better than everyone else will not let you settle for anyone… at all
I have read something the other day it went something like…
If you didn’t have the family that you have..
or been in situations you have been
or met/lost the people that you did
You wouldn’t be the person that you are right now.
Everything happens to you, it shapes you.
It all comes down this:
First you need to accept yourself the way you are.
Know that nobody’s perfect, and if you want to change, change for better.
Once you do that, you got to realize that whatever happened to you should never be a reason for you thinking that you deserve less than any other person out there.
Once you acknowledge your worth you will be patient to accept a love that fits you right.
Just to clarify: Accepting is not settling….
Do not settle for less than what you deserve.
