In my last post I shared that I was gonna be starting a new series called “Me Time.” If you wanna know more about it please go to my following post!
It’s the New Year! We’re making resolutions, signing up for gyms, and getting ready to go back to school. This year for my “resolution” I decided that I was gonna thrive and put energy into working on myself and truly devopling my identity instead of worrying about boys and putting my energy towards a relationship.
To do this, I have to start at step one: Being able to love myself.
I’ve been debating where to start this series, but I think that the first steps to truly owning who you are and too being successful as a Christian, a women, a student, is to find your worth in yourself and Christ.
A lot of times I find myself wanting to be in a relationship because I want to feel loved, or be told I’m wanted, but that is a perversion of what a relationship is. I’ve found that no matter how many times someone calls me beautiful, tells me I’m funny, or if I get 1,000 likes on Instagram it’s all obsolete if I don’t love who I am.
If you put your worth in someone else and they leave you, you are left with nothing; but if you find your worth within yourself, no matter what happens you can stand tall and know that you are strong, beautiful, loved, and wanted.
Why do you want a relationship?
My challenge to you is to daily look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself why you are gorgeous, why you are loved, and why you are worth more than gold. I’ve started to do this and I feel like all the things people say just roll off my back because I know they are lies the devil is throwing my way.
Try looking at yourself the way God looks at you.
In the comment section, please share your ideas and the ways you are finding your worth within yourself! This will encourage others and me!
