This Is What Happens When You Love Yourself
I know what it’s like to feel like I am worthless. And I now know all the goodness that comes with self-love.
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you showed yourself a little more love…a little more acceptance…a little more grace? If you haven’t, I have a story to share about how my life changed once I decided to see my worth and love myself more.
Before I get into it, I want to note why I use the word “decide.” Working on self-love is a choice. And it’s one that I make daily and take very seriously. Because I know what it’s like to feel like I am worthless. It opens up a can of worms where I:
make fear-based decisions
bend over back to please others
struggle with saying no and, instead, say yes to people and circumstances that do not align with who I am and what I want from life and relationships
don’t speak up because of a fear of rejection, abandonment, and/or rocking the boat
listen to the advice of others instead of my intuition.
Rinse and repeat.
I can go on and on, my self-love champions, but I choose to focus on all the progress that I have made instead. That’s where my story comes in.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LOVE YOURSELF
Recently, I loved myself enough to leave a job that did not resonate with my passions, skillset, personality, and, ultimately, what I want to do professionally. My friends tried to talk me out of it, they said, “Give it a chance!” but I knew that time wouldn’t change how awful I felt with the duties that the job entailed. So, at the end of day 2, I emailed HR and quit.
Crazy, right? Maybe. But guess what happened next? I received an email to interview for a job that I had applied to months before. A job that checked all of my boxes regarding the lifestyle it would provide me and the skills I would use in the role. A job that I had completely forgotten about and would not have been available for if I listened to everyone else, and I didn’t quit a job that felt oh-so-wrong for me. What happened next? Find out on my self-love blog!
