3 Things I Overcame To Love Myself
*Feeling Guilty About Being Unhappy: I would feel guilty for complaining, for not feeling content, for not being happy with my life. I could tell you unlimited reasons why I should be happy due to this or that; but I felt alone and lonely.
*Not Knowing How To Express Myself: Many times when I spoke up in my childhood or first marriage, about how I felt, I was invalidated. Looking back, I was surrounded by emotionally immature adults and they were doing the best they could but the emotional disconnect was severe.
*Putting Other People's Needs Before My Own: Overtime I learned (unconsciously) that I must show interest in others or take care of them, in order for my own needs and wants to be met. So the fewer emotional needs I had, the less work I was for others and the more they'd stay and semi pay attention.

It all started with a choice. A choice to heal. A choice to try. A choice in whether or not I wanted to stay in the life I was living, or create a new one for myself, by aligning with my soul.
