5 Things That Happen When You Learn To Love Yourself

You're happier than you've ever been

5 Things That Happen When You Learn To Love Yourself
Brian Mchugh

So many beautiful things happen when you finally open your stubborn heart and learn to love yourself.

1. You accept your flaws and imperfections.

You'll find bruises aren't worth beating yourself up and put-downs won't ever lift you higher. You are you for a reason, quirks and mistakes and all. Adore who you are, what you've got, where you're at, and none of that minuscule nonsense will matter.

2. Your confidence raises through the roof.

Now that you've realized how amazing you are, nothing can stop you. No fear, no intimidation. You are self-assured in your actions here on out, and damn proud of them. Good for you, honestly. Not many people are considered to be this brave.

3. You stop feeling incomplete.

The search for more is put to rest. Because you are whole on your own. You fulfill yourself more than another human could. They'd just be an added bonus to your awesomeness.

4. You're ready to love another, the right way.

They say you must truly love yourself before properly loving another. And that's quite true. Insecurities destroy relationships. Appropriate self-love strengthens them.

5. You're happier than you've ever been.

After all, self-love is defined as regard for one's own well-being and happiness. And you found just that. Pure bliss at the end of your fingertips, without another hand to hold. Congrats on finally giving yourself the love you deserve from within.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?
