3 Reasons Loving Yourself Is WAY More Important Than Loving Anyone Else

Self-love is a tricky thing. Sometimes the world pulls you in a million different directions, and you become so busy helping everyone else that you forget to take some time for yourself. I can't point any fingers, I'm guilty of it more than anyone. But you will never truly be able to find inner peace, clarity, or success without showing yourself some love, and here's why I think that you should.

1. You're the only thing that is for certain in your life 

Boys, friends, and sometimes even family will come and go. This doesn't mean that you can't love them and want to keep them around, but if you knew that ONE person was going to stick with you through it all, wouldn't you want to love them the most? That person is you. At the end of the day, you're all that you've got, so you might as well show yourself some love.

2. You've gotten this far 

Take a minute for me and look back at all that you've done. All of the tests you thought you'd never pass, heartbreaks you thought you'd never get over, and sleepless nights that you thought you'd never get through. You have persevered through all of that just to make it here, and there's no reason to give up now. Be proud of yourself and celebrate your little accomplishments.

3. Loving yourself allows you to love others 

It doesn't matter how many people tell you that you're wonderful, shower you with gifts, or bend over backward to make you happy. If you aren't secure and happy in the person that you are, you won't know how to accept the love that they're giving you. As Chbosky said in Perks of Being a Wallflower, "We accept the love we think we deserve." Love yourself enough to do things that make you happy, and the right person will love you just the way you are.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
