The only way to get that though is by leaving and learning to love yourself. Self love is so important. You have to love yourself to truly love anyone else. What you're doing is using someone else to fill in the gaps. It can't work. You will never feel complete like this. I get it, you've probably been through a lot, seen so much hurt or been hurt yourself. However, staying in a relationship when you don't know your self worth will only allow him to take advantage of you. He knows you are not going to leave that's why he continues to mistreat you. If you are scared to leave because your a victim of abuse I will leave a few links for you to save. If you are staying because you have no where else to go message me personally and I will help you look for some resources in your area. I want you to go out and live your best life alone if you have to but happy and loved the right way. So Ill end this by saying know your worth sis, if you're unhappy, unloved, or abused walk away. It might be hard, it might be scary but I promise it will be worth it. Sending you so much love and a virtual hug.
What does self-love mean to you? Is it confidence? Knowing when to say no, or Knowing your self-worth? Well if you're like me it's been a combination of all of the above. You know what's missing, Self-care. If you're like me you think of self-care and get a feeling of guilt. Your busy being a mom, student, daughter, friend, girlfriend, and wife. How can you possibly fit time in for yourself?
