Hollaaa myyyyy peoopppleeeeee! Yesss I’m excited!! Whoooppp! Why? Hmm, Maybe because I’m alive? Or because I can move my legs, hands, fingers and all the parts of my body are working perfectly?? maybe because I’m back to blogging in full force (dancing Shoki) or maybe because I’m done serving my father land and now on a journey to full self-discovery and building my conglomerate??(dabbing to reekado banks’ OLUWA NI) Wheeew! So much to be thankful for! I’ve missed you guys, let’s catch up, what have you guys been up to? Who missed me? I did!! Oh, I’m not allowed to? I just really love myself sorry (not sorry, haha) and I’ve heard it’s really a good therapy for long life. LOVING YOURRSELLFFF!!! YESS. DO GOOD TO YOU AND LOVE YOURSELF! I’m literally shouting rn (right now).
(Breathes in, breathes out) Whew* Now I’m calm. Haha.
But for real though, how you can love someone else without loving yourself first. HOW???? And I’ve seen people give away their lives, goals, dreams, and aspirations, for what?? Just to make SOMEONE else happy! IS THAT WHAT JESUS DIED FOR? HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR US ALREADY, HE PAID THE PRICE, NOT IN INSTALLMENTS, NOT ON CREDIT, NOT ON LEASE, NOT ON HIRE PURCHASE, H E P A I D I N F U L L with his B L O O D (did I hear halleluyah ?)
Even the scriptures say “love your neighbor AS YOURSELF” AS, not MORE THAN! AS!! Of course Uncle Holy Spirit didn’t expect us to go giving up our life just so other people would live which was why He inspired that quote to ask us to treat people nicely as we would do ourselves. Or maybe He already knew a time would come when people wouldn’t know how to love themselves?? Osheyy! I’m getting some Holy Ghost revelation rn; SO WHY YOU TRYNA BE ANOTHER JESUS MA? Why you letting ‘em tell you your dreams are too big? (Why are you even listening to people like that? Why are they your friends? DELETE them from your life!) Why you staying in a bad, barren, unrealistic relationship? Holding on to NOTHING, TIME TO LET GO! I KNOW ITS HARD, AND ITS EASIER SAID THAN DONE, BUT YOU HAVE TO. YOU JUST HAVE TO.
Why you putting your life on hold waiting for someone else? (ESPECIALLY FEMALE SINGLES!! PLeeeaaSE GET A LIFEE!) Honey, you need a life before your prince charming comes. You can’t be idle! WHAT WOULD THE WONDER WOMAN OF THE SCRIPTURES DO? THE SUMMA CUM LAUDE OF BIBLICAL FEMINITY, THE PROVERBS31 WOMAN. WHAT WOULD SHE DO? WOULD SHE SIT AROUND DOING NOTHING WAITING FOR MARRIAGE LIKE IT’S HER ULTIMATE AND ONLY GOAL IN LIFE? WOULD SHE NOT MAKE FINE LINEN AND SELL ANYMORE BECAUSE HER HUSBAND IS IN A BAD MOOD? (I’m screaming again)
(shines teeth) I’m back!
I want to know, what would you do if your to-be-married partner DOESN’T SHOW ON THE WEDDING DAY? SELF LOVE would make you say “oh, she/he didn’t come to the wedding, that’s his/her loss” Lol, Of course, you’ll cry (I totally understand) but I’m saying is self-love brings self-worth along with it.
Yes you should give love to the world, help people, give sacrificially, sometimes give without expectation, do good to people that would never be able to repay you, be kind, sometimes allow people treat you how they choose but,
LOVE YOURSELF enough to take the actions required for your happiness.
LOVE YOURSELF enough to cut yourself loose from the ties of a drama-filled past
LOVE YOURSELF enough to move on.
Let them call it pride,
Let them call it high-handedness,
Let them call you Smug,
Let them call you complacent, who cares??
See, I’ll plant light in your heart, Love in your soul, I’ll love you perfectly but if it hinders my self-worth and inner peace baby, I CAN UNLOVE you.
P.S Today’s post was really supposed to be about something else entirely, I really don’t know how I entered Self-love. Oh well.
P.P.S someone told me DANCING SHOKI and DABBING IS A SIN because it’s worldly. So let’s replace my “DANCING SHOKI” up there with dancing JESUS DANCE?
Naah. I’LL PASS. Haha.
