Today I am grateful I have self love. I came across this quote a couple of days ago and it’s really got me thinking about how my relationships have changed over the years.
Once upon a time my relationship was everything; I fell in love two feet first, and it wasn’t until much later I realised I gave so much that I’d lost myself in the process. It took a long time to recover from that. I felt so hollow, like an empty shell on a beach with nothing left inside of me.
Fast forward to the love I have in my life now. First and foremost I am true to who I am, and everything falls into place from there. My girlfriend fell in love with a highly complex person who had a finger in so many of life’s pies, and no matter how in love with her I am I vow I will always be that person for her.
It is all the things outside of our relationship that we, as individuals, bring back into it. While I love our sameness and the stuff we share, I love our diversity more and I would be bored silly without it.
Never give up who you are for love.
