We’re always told to love ourselves to the fullest. At times, I wonder if you don’t love yourself, who will love you. I know some people might say that they receive love from their families, boyfriends, girlfriends and so on.

But the truth is, LOVE starts within you. Love yourself first before you share your love with somebody else

Self-Love and Worthiness go hand in hand
Love yourself until you understand the meaning of love. Love is not a feeling that is shared nor is it love for your boyfriend but a feeling that is REAL
It took me a really long time to accept and love myself.

I used to let people DEFINE me. I didn’t understand the meaning of “Self-Love”
Until one day, I fell in love, in love with myself.

There she stood, her beautiful smile looking at me. Her sweet voice whispering in my ear, telling me to love and appreciate myself. I took her advice, I am glad I did. She is a wise young lady, and this is Nondumiso Madela.

My point is, you will fall in and out of love with your boyfriend or girlfriend. At first everything will be smooth and interesting until you start fading from your loved one. At the moment, you will feel like it is the end of the world. Truth is, it is only the beginning.
There will always be break-ups and heartbreaks but don’t let them tear you apart. Be strong. Keep on
loving yourself.

There are people who will leave us because we’re not good enough in their eyes, but LISTEN up. You are BEAUTIFUL, SPECIAL and WORTHY. It just that you are too perfect for them, they can’t handle you
In life there are meant to be goodbyes. Recently I had to let go of someone whom I loved dearly. There were times when I told myself that I can’t survive without him but that was a LIE.
Let me tell you what happened.

He was my primary sweetheart. Our love was built 7 years ago. We were in love, he was my happiness.
I know for a fact that he cheated along the way but at the end of the day, I knew I was the “number one girl” in his life.

I am sure you are wondering how things fell apart
Well, it was the 18th of November 2014. That was our first break-up

That day, life fell on my feet. I became weak. I stopped believing in myself. But life went on
Few days after the break up, he wanted us to be “friends”. I agreed, which was a stupid decision. The special connection couldn’t have been denied because it was so strong. We loved each other unconditionally.

The reason that we were broken was because of his “FRIEND”
This is why I never want to involve friends in my relationships because they just “DESTROY” instead of being good and loyal friends

We started lacking trust. It was painful not to be trusted.
For the first time, I spent my New Year’s Eve crying and heartbroken. If things were fine, we would have called each other that night but we were “ENEMIES”
January began, life was hard but I picked up the pieces and moved on.

When April approached, I fell in love once again with myself.
Compliments were like rain in my life.

Every day was a step forward.
Let me keep the story short.
Today, we no longer communicate.
Self-Love is everything
Love Yourself, Be Yourself
Be comfortable in your own skin
This is my gift to you
