I think it’s important to take a step back every once and awhile to evaluate if you are truly living up to your self worth. It’s important to check in with yourself and see if the relationships you are currently in are serving you well and giving you what you need. Also you need to make sure you, yourself, are showing up for the other person. Because I think we spend a lot of time going through the motions and reciting “Of course I love myself!” but are you making choices that reflect that? What I’m trying to say is I see a line within my own self esteem. On one side I want the best for myself, I dream big, I love to love people and I want to be loved. On the other side I see myself repeating patterns that are harmful, letting certain people have almost no responsibility and accountability for hurting me or playing mind games. Instead I spend my precious time trying to figure them out and reason with them, whether I always admit that or not. I’ve been adored and I think people really do love the way I love them but I don’t think I’ve ever been loved back quite the same.
