Yes you read it correctly. Too many people don’t value themselves as individuals and it is why they’re treated so badly by their significant others and other people. As I mentioned in many earlier posts; many people are desperate for love.

First of all IF and WHEN you’re desperate for love this is the FIRST sign you need to re-evaluate your life. Nothing is wrong with wanting to be loved by someone special. However, when you’re doing any and everything to receive this love, this is a sign something is wrong. I’ve said it once, twice, and will continue to say/write it. People are forever seeking love in all of the wrong places and in all of the wrong ways.

I don’t care how many times individuals have seen people get their lives taken or get seriously hurt by those who supposedly loved them; individuals will continue to get into and stay in unhealthy relationships. They will continue to be mistreated and disrespected. They will continue to be de-valued in the name of what they think is love.

These types of people are always going through the same type of situations with similar type people. The end results are also similar, but this still isn’t enough for them to realize they have unresolved issues they need to deal with. Instead they keep living their lives as if it’s a resolving door.

All I want to say is; before you can truly love someone you must first love yourself. You must value and respect yourself. When you don’t people you allow into your life will treat you how you treat yourself; oftentimes worse. If you don’t respect yourself whoever you’re with will not respect you. You’ll never have the love you deserve if you don’t first know how to love yourself or know what real love involves.

What you receive is exactly what you allow. You deserve the best! It’s time to value who you are as a person. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or gone through you can make a change right now. The choice is yours. Love you first and the rest will come.

Peace and love!!
