And if you have the power to love, please, love yourself first. Why do people hate it when you know your worth, you have standards, you stand your ground, you are loyal to your morals.. and they flip the coin on you and make you feel like you are the one with the problem. "You are too demanding, You are too selective, You are too arrogant". No, I'm neither of those things. It took me a long time to build myself, to build my self-worth, to put back the broken pieces. And I'm still learning to love myself enough to know what I need, what will improve, benefit or grow me and never settle for less. This is not arrogant or selfish. This is SELF-LOVE. And you know what? There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
