Did you ever watch Sex And The City?
If so, you may remember the scene with Samantha Jones where she broke off her engagement to Smith with this famously quoted line…
“I’m gonna say the one thing you aren’t supposed to say. I love you… but I love me more. I’ve been in a relationship with myself for 49 years and that’s the one I need to work on.”
While Smith’s life was glamorous and exciting, he was also a great guy (plus quite easy on the eyes); she was sacrificing herself and her happiness to be there to support him.
She had lost touch with herself, her needs and her own dreams and goals, and it took a major toll on her.
Have you ever contemplated what “I love me MORE” means to you?
Consider this, You can love yourself but still put others first.
You can love yourself and still put your dreams on hold.
You can love yourself and still not be honest with others about your needs and desires.
Self-love is nice, but it’s not the whole truth.
You have to love yourself more—more than your partner, more than your family, more than your friends, more than your boss.
Your needs must be your highest priority. We are only really at our best to serve others after our own needs have been met.
And babe, self-love is not even close to being selfish. (learn about the difference between selfishness and self-love here).
So I hope you will proudly say out loud today “I love me more”!
