Him… (Page 157 of Life In Its Rawest Form) and not the “Him” you may be thinking.
Having my son as a teen, I had to grow up fast. In the first post, part 1 of the current #SelfLove series, I discussed not knowing what love I was looking for in life and in my relationships. I was confused by the things that were going on in my life and around me. Having my son, although I was only 14 years old when I carried him in my belly, helped mold me and not only did I have to love myself, but he was an extension of me. Before he was brought into the world I realized I had to adopt an entire new understanding of the love I needed. He was and is LOVE. He has opened my eyes to seeing the love I deserve. True, unconditional love.
Thanks to this epiphany, I am able to see love more clearer now. No more #Foggylove. I have somewhat of an example and foundation to build from. The love I feel and have for my son (complete joy and happiness) is in some ways the love I want overall for myself and with anyone else. This clarity has prevented me from making the same choices I've made in past relationships that I talk about in post 1 of this #Selflove series, when I didn't have a good sense of the type of love that I was looking to gain from the relationship.
I want to encourage you to be whole and happy with yourself, so that you're open to recognizing and receiving the love you deserve. #SenseofSelf #SelfLove
