I’ve had a post about raising your vibration written for weeks – I was planning to upload it today, but I write from the heart, and given the fact that my vibration is not at its highest at the moment – it didn’t feel right. Instead, I want to share an important lesson I’ve learned about self-love over the last couple of days.
The importance of self-love
It’s ironic, isn’t it? Our relationships with other people can tell us so much about the relationship we have with ourselves.
I always thought that I loved myself until I had to cut someone I cared about out of my life. It was only at that moment, that my actions truly aligned with loving myself. Before that, I had been putting that person’s needs and feelings first and totally ignoring my own to make that person happy.
It hurt me to cut this tie but I knew that ultimately, it would be the thing that healed me. At that moment, I knew that my feelings and emotions deserved to be acknowledged and I was no longer going to brush them to the side.
That’s when I realised that I really loved myself.
