Self Love Isn't Selfish, It's Vital!

 
 
Recovery has taught me many things one of those being that self love is vital. By looking after yourself and putting yourself first you are in a healthy place physically, mentally and emotionally and you can help others in the best way possible. While helping people is amazing and rewarding you can't truly help others if you're driving yourself into a ditch because after all you can't really help anyone when you're stuck in a ditch can you?!?!. You first and foremost need to give yourself that love, respect, advice and attention you're giving everyone else.
 
For me my recovery and looking after myself comes first because without it I wouldn't be here and without continuing to make that choice I would be in that ditch pretty quickly. You need to start pampering yourself like you do your partner or friends, say no to people and things that are stressing you out or are too overwhelming, say yes to things that scare you and inspire you (easy said then done, I know!), ask for help, simplify your life, cut toxic people out of your life and have those awkward conversations. You will feel so much more healthy by looking after yourself that you'll bring more sunshine to others because you are happier inside and out!
 
Self love isn't selfish it truly is vital for a healthy life in all aspects so I challenge you to put yourself first and see the sunshine lighting up your life and others but most of all because you're worth it!

Be You Forever And Always!

 
 
Sometimes people don't get you, don't like you or just hate on you... it is not your fault. Who you are is enough, you are beautiful, talented and wonderful beyond words and no matter who you are in life someone will still hate you or not get you but that's not your problem however it is your responsibility to be yourself in all your magical glory as long as it's not hurting anyone.
 
Too many days get wasted on trying to be something your not and to please others which eventually leads into unhappiness and completely losing your way. Sometimes it will be hard to stick up for who you are and keep being yourself in a world that tries to break you down in so many aspects but it is worth it and you have to be prepared to fight for yourself. Trust and believe in who you are and every situation will make you stronger, knowledgeable, more accepting of yourself and others and you will be able to inspire and help others in more ways than you will ever know.
 
The right people will love you for you so remember to keep your head up darling and be kind, grateful, respectful, positive, keep smiling and doing your thing and most importantly never stop being you... EVER.
 
With love
Rainbow :)
