Promise yourself that you will stop putting your feelings and needs second; selfishness and self-care are two very different things. Promise that you’ll take care of your mind and body — stay active, but give yourself permission to rest and time to replenish your soul. Promise yourself that you will walk away from those who love you with conditions and from those who do not value your worth. You shouldn’t have to destroy your soul in order to create a relationship. Promise yourself that you will start to change the critical voice inside your head. Replace the thoughts that bring you down with the thoughts that lift you up. Promise to forgive yourself and stop reliving the same mistakes. Be kinder and gentler with yourself. Make decisions based on passion, not fear. Respect yourself. Love yourself and recognize that in this very moment, you are enough. Lock away these promises and throw away the key. May you learn that you are deserving of the same love that you give others and may you love yourself enough to keep the promises that you make.
