“Most of us spend so much time hating things about ourselves that we don’t realize we’re crippling our ability to love others.
There’s no way you can figure out how to love somebody else well in a relationship if you have not first figured out how to love yourself. ” ~pastor Michael Todd
I definitely had an aha moment.
because of this.
the reason ~ well one reason ~ I have so much trouble loving my neighbor is because I don’t like myself.
However…I am getting better!
it has been extremely difficult for me to forgive myself for some of my parenting mistakes.
Like I said: I’m working on it with Jesus and I have definitely found that,
as I’m learning to forgive myself.
and love myself.
and give myself a break,
and move on….
I am becoming a better parent and friend and wife and child.
