Loving Me So I can Love You
Receiving Love to Love Our Family
Loving Me First So I Can Love You?
Seems strange and selfish to talk about loving ourselves first. As moms our natural tendency is to love our children before ourselves. So ‘Loving Me’ seems out of place.
However, we all have met people in our lives that unfortunately don’t see their own value or dislike themselves. Those same people have a hard time being loving or focusing on others… because we can’t give what we don’t have . We can’t express what we haven’t experienced.
Tough parenting days are days when we feel inadequate and maybe are angry at ourselves. It really reflects on how we treat our kids. We need Love. For their sake.
Receive Love For You
Love for our kids and family can only start when we love ourselves. We can only love ourselves when we receive love.
We must know true love so we can share it with our kids. In turn, they will love themselves. And they can grow confident and secure in love.
The more we love ourselves, flaws and all, the more we can express the same love and grace to our families. We will be able to see them beyond their flaws and accept and love them as they are.
You Are Loved. So Love Who You Are.
You are loved with an eternal, perfect and everlasting Love.
