How or why should anyone love you better than you love yourself.
For those who read the bible it is written in Mark 12:30-31New King James Version (NKJV)
30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’[a] This is the first commandment.[b] 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[c] There is no other commandment greater than these.”
if you can’t or don’t love yourself how then can you love me. I have to love you as commanded be the word of God with all my heart and my soul, mind and all my strength. That means when you are acting a fool I still have to love. Oh but that does not mean I have to like your ass or stay with you or be around you. It is best that I excuse myself from the equation so that you don’t become a casualty and I become a criminal.
The bottom line is I am commanded to love you as I love myself. If can’t love me what make you think I can love you without limits. Loved getting you is only and
Extension of me loving myself. So here is where the rubber meets the road. I HAVE TOT TO LOVE ME. Do you love you?
Rather other folk know or understand me I love myself not arrogantly nor in a self centered kind of way. Because I have flaws and I know it. The fact remains no one can change me but me. So the things I don’t like about me I make valid attempts to change it until I’m satisfied. I don’t need to be perfect I just need to be the best me I can be. That may mean me getting on your nerves but I just got to be me. That might mean folk want like me and that’s cool cause I’m fully aware that every body is not going to dig Lillie L. Some might despise me, some hate, some might can’t stand the mention of my name. Oooo but they don’t know my story they just see my glory.
I’ve got to live with me 24/7 and if I don’t like Lillie L. Who will. This chick make mistake, fall short, screw up, fall down but I get back up and am determine to make the best of any and all situations. Don’t have time to stay down. Got together back up. In fact when I fell emotional display leasure knocking on my heart I cut it off as quickly as possible. If I don’t I might look up and it’s several months later and I’m still in he dumps, feel incredibly blue, in a serious funk and I forgot why. Time is of the essence for funky stuff is on the horizen
The bible say all things work together for my good. So if you hate yourself it will work together for your good as long as you can says that was the ole me. Romans 8:28King James Version (KJV) 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose Ok so you ask to what purpose am I call to? Well from what I can see one purpose is to love. But now on the other hand that’s between you and God. I suggest you ask Him.
