Week2: Self-love and Self-Acceptance. Who can love and accept YOU like YOU?  You are altogether beautiful, my love, there is no flaw in you. -Song of Solomon 4:7

 Welcome back!!! This week topic is all about loving and accepting yourself. This one is all for my ladies because we suffer from self-love and acceptance. It is a learning process and a journey that you should consider taking. Everything takes time so remember nothing happens overnight. So it comes a point in your life where you have to love you more than anything. Then you have to accept everything that comes with you. When you don’t love yourself you tend to seek love from wherever and from whoever. I think it’s time that we all engage in self-love and self-acceptance. Who can love you like you do (NOBODY)!!!

Do we have flaws? Yes, Do we fall short sometimes? Yes, Are we perfect? No Do we want to be perfect? No, In the end should we still love and accept ourselves? Yes. If you got the same answers that I got then you’re ready for this topic, Like I said nothing happens overnight and I’m still learning as well. I don’t want you ladies to think that I just have it all figured out because I don’t. I mean I love myself and if I’m being honest I have only accepted a few things about myself. I have yet to come to grips with every little flaw that I have. For example, I have a keloid on my ear that I haven’t come to fully accept, so I always wear my hair down. Hint my cover picture is of me with my hair always down. I’m not perfect and I’m still learning to accept the keloid on my ear. I do know that God loves us and accepts us no matter what. I know if he can love us and accept us no matter what then we can do the same. I know that my audience Is of all ages so this message is for everyone. I notice in my generation that a lot of girls are seeking love from just anybody. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong or if you have an opinion. People come in your life for 1 of 3 reasons. I feel like anyone who comes in your life male or female come in your life to show you what’s real, what’s unhealed, or to guide you down a certain path. When you love and accept yourself you’ll know right away their purpose in your life.

Some females and males are just too open to love from the wrong people. Your willing to receive love however it comes meaning good or bad. Your seeking validation form the wrong people as well. Validation is for parking baby. It’s not the way to your heart. I believe that vibes are real. People can sense it or even smell it if you understand where I’m coming from. They can smell that you don’t accept and love yourself. They will try to get over on you and they will assist in you making a fool of yourself. Maybe this post isn’t for you but I’m telling you I’m learning to love and accept myself and I’m seeing people differently now, I notice things that literally 2 years ago I would have never picked up on. Some people I had to pick apart because I didn’t want to believe what God himself was telling me. We need to stop chasing love but be confident and let love approach us. It’s going to be scary, it might even hurt at times but remember your strong. Your strong because you won and you will WIN!! You have to fight for self-love and self-acceptance. I encourage you to start everyday by saying I love (Insert Your Name). Say it as many times throughout the day as much as you need to. Don’t feel bad about pushing people away to go on this journey as well. Encourage them too possibly take this journey with you. Then slowly but surely look into some of those flaws and begin to accept them and wear them proudly. Listen if god be for you who can be against you. He’s got your back, front, left and your right side. God is guiding you, loving you, and accepting everything about you.
