Take the chance to commit to yourself.
It doesn’t matter what your relationship status is – you can double dose on self-love.
I’m not talking ego-driven, narcissistic, self-aggrandizing stuff here. This is real, unadulterated, self-worth boosting, confidence building, unconditional love of yourself.
You know, all that love bottled up inside that oozes for others – get you some of that, like asap!
You want the kinda self-love that we should all be giving ourselves, no matter our flaws and limitations. No, not after you find the ‘right’ partner, become a success, and trim off those extra Covid-19 lbs. Now.
You deserve to love yourself, as you are. Get radical. Accept yourself, flaws and all. Don’t worry, you can still work on those things that aren’t serving you so well, because that’s self-love too.
Your flaws don’t take away from your worth – hint – perfection does not exist. So, unless you like eternal limbo, stop waiting to get all your ducks in a row before you take your You-Relationship to the next level.
Take this unusual time to break free from the esteem-crushing comparison game that leaves you void, angry, depressed, and feeling alone. Instead, fill up on that double dose of compassionate self-love!
It all starts with a commitment to YOU.
