I recently embarked on a 31-day “Self Love” Challenge, which has been pretty exciting. These types of challenges can embody pampering oneself, self-affirmations, ways to reinforce confidence, and a variety of other things. I decided to look at the ways that I show love and do things for other people (that I rarely do for myself) and do 31 things for me. I also invited others to join me or shared these to expand love to others. Demonstrating and truly showing myself love in action, words, deeds, and more has been uplifting. It is often said you cannot pour from an empty cup, so it’s important to pour into oneself and allow others to do so. As a result, we can then pour into others. I want to share that with you, for anyone else that may want to take this on.

    Just know that you deserve to get these things from others, and not necessarily from a love interest. Though I agree that it is good to be able to find some solace in oneself, I also feel that we cannot and should not be able to completely fill our own cups. As you pour into others, others (same and/or different) should want and be allowed to pour into and help sustain you. I feel we all deserve some amount of that, and I know I’m not alone in feeling that YOU have earned a proverbial lioness’ share. Don’t feel burdensome in reaching out to those you trust, and don’t feel undeserving of well-intentioned persons’ desires to give (back) to you any fraction of the great sum that is your worth.

    Just my two cents…
