You Deserved to Be Loved
I read something the other day that stuck with me. It went like this “You deserve to be loved without having to hide the parts of yourself you think are unlovable.” When I read this, it was like a revelation. That statement is so true. We do deserve to be loved without having to hide those parts we think are unlovable. We are created in God’s image. He loves us, unlovable parts and all. We deserve to love ourselves and we deserve love from others.
We can be real. We can be who we are. It is okay. When we can accept that, our lives and feelings become freed from the shackles that bind us with an emotional crippling that holds us back from many things including understanding that we can love ourselves warts and all.
When we can accept this fact, it is so much easier to allow ourselves to love others. We can accept there will always be things that we might find unlovable, however, the lovable outweighs the unlovable.
Find your self love. Embrace it all. Then find the love for others, embrace all of them. You will find that you will be better for it.
