You Should Go And Love Yourself

Hi everyone! I hope you have all had a really positive week so far. Apologies for not posting on Sunday. I'm not even going to say that I have an excuse, because I honestly don't, but some days I get so wrapped up in day to day living that I just don't have the time or the motivation to post. I'm sure most of you will understand and you probably think I don't even have to apologise for it, but I still want to anyway! Although I do have a schedule that I try to stick to for the most part, there will be days where I don't post and sometimes I may not even explain it. There may not be a reason, like there wasn't this time, but I will always come back sooner or later. It's just that I'm in Year 10 at school and I do have a lot of work, as well as a social life, so as much as I absolutely adore blogging and interacting with all of my followers, it can take a backseat unintentionally at times.
I thought I'd do another advice post today. I did actually have a schedule for the entire month, where I knew everything that I wanted to do and what days I wanted to post what, but unfortunately, I'm not as prepared as I would have liked to be. I will still be doing all of the posts, just on different days and at different times now! Once again, I do apologise, but these things happen and that's just the way it is sometimes.
How many of you can honestly hold your hand up and say that you love yourself, inside and out? I know I can't! Within our society, most people actually feel insecure about one thing or another. Maybe even more than a few. Some people may feel insecure about near enough everything, whereas others may not feel insecure about much at all. It all depends on how we are as individuals. No two people are exactly the same and if I'm honest, I don't think it would be any fun that way!
As cliché as this may sound, we were all born to be an original, not a copy. We all have different talents, different fears, different hobbies, different personalities and of course, different appearances. If we were all completely identical, there would be nothing to love.
Although we may feel like we have flaws, or we may feel that we aren't as worthy as our best friend is, those thoughts are completely irrelevant. Everybody has flaws. Everybody has things about both their personality and their appearance that they wish they could change or that they wish they didn't have, but their brother or their neighbour may wish that they could have the option to swap, even for a day.
People constantly say that nobody will love you unless you love yourself first. I think that's true to a certain extent, but I also disagree with it too. Other people will always love you, whether you are aware of it or not. They may not always say it, they may not always show it - but the love is always there deep down. There will always be people who care about you as well. Most times, when you're really down or when you feel really lost, as if you have no-where to turn, you will find someone, somehow. You can doubt it as much as you want, but there is usually always someone willing to offer a helping hand.
However, you also need to learn how to love yourself (I'm trying so hard to refrain myself from typing out all of the Justin Bieber lyrics right now). Whilst having a conversation with somebody close to me yesterday, I realised that I need to learn how to love myself as well, so with this post in particular, I really should be practising what I preach! People may not always be available to support you whenever you need them. After a while, you may feel so attached to them that you may just expect them to always be there. Then, one time they won't be and you will fall apart and begin to question everything. That's why you need to become independent and love yourself first. You need to have your own back. People in this world are evil and sometimes even your best friend may turn on you when you least expect it. Look after yourself, your mind and your body. Learn and experience new things. Take time out to relax. Eat and drink properly. Exercise and keep active. Remove yourself from negative people. Compliment yourself and accept the love that others give you. You should focus on you, always and then put others after that. Regardless of how important they are to you. Just do YOU. Always.
Lots of love,
Jade x
