Love Yourself in Marriage
June 5th 2010 04:35
There will be times that you will have to stand up for yourself. There will be times that you will have to take the high road. There will be times you will to assert yourself. This doesn't mean you have to fight with your spouse. This just means you shouldn't be a doormat.
Stick up for yourself. You are not your spouse's emotional trash bag, beat bag. You have a voice. You are your own person.
So love yourself. Take care of yourself. It's noble to take care of another, but you can only care for others if you yourself are well-cared for. Here's an encouraging poem by Stacey Chillemi:
Your face will not glow with happiness unless you love yourself,
The birds will not sing songs unless you sing with them,
The flowers will not blossom unless you water them,
The beautiful smell they carry will not breeze through the universe we take care of them,
Everything is meaningless unless you love and take care of yourself…
Believe in yourself,
Believe in your wishes,
Believe in your dreams,
Hopes and desires.
