"1. Choose love"
Life is all about making constant decisions. It’s sacrifice. Sometimes we give up ourselves to choose the things we think we want. We decide to make others happy and love others. It’s hard to come to the realization that being selfish is still an important part of staying true to yourself. So, when it comes to life, choose yourself and here’s how.
Choose to love yourself above all else. Spend time with yourself. We’ve been convinced that loving ourselves is considered selfish. We’re taught that loving ourselves is self-centered and pretentious. But loving yourself is the best form of self-care. If you can choose to love yourself, you will know what it means to choose to love others. You won’t give your heart away so easily. By choosing love, you’re choosing to protect yourself.
Choose happiness instead of comfort. Don’t stay with anyone or in any one place because you’re comfortable and afraid of the unknown. Choose to be overfilled with joy. When you settle, you’re never fully allowing yourself to reach your dreams. Your happiness comes first, so let go of anything holding you down.
If you want to choose yourself, you have to choose your own freedom. Stop tying yourself to people and experiences that make you feel trapped and stuck. Learn to let go and find what makes you happy and what you need to be the best version of yourself.
Choosing strength means choosing to be strong enough to fight your battles and to come out more powerful and fearless. A strong woman takes the time to find herself. She builds other women up and never steps on anyone to get ahead. By choosing to be strong, you’re choosing to leave toxic situations that are holding you down. So, be strong. Believe in yourself and keep fighting for you.
When it comes to choosing yourself, it’s important to chase after your own dreams and achievements. Decide to prosper and thrive for yourself and not for others. Don’t stay secure because someone else is afraid of you flying too high. Create dreams and goals that are beyond anything you’d ever expect for yourself. So, choose to have a better life and to always succeed.
While relationships, friendships and jobs require a healthy amount of push and pull, at the end of the day, there is only so much of yourself you can give away. Choose to be selfish and find yourself. Choose to let go and be free. You don’t have to stay tied down to anything or anyone that isn’t constantly lifting you up. By choosing to help yourself, you’re making the decision to be better, fly higher and be happier.
