Today I’m going to be talking about accepting your happiness and loving yourself, unapologetically! I decided to talk about this because I think it’s so vital and important that when we get to a certain place in our lives, where we feel as though we’re genuinely happy and we’re embracing that self love we have for ourselves we’re going to sometimes have to face individuals in our lives that aren’t willing to accept our happiness or self growth!
I know you’re probably wondering why aren’t the people I love not happy for me or why don’t they support me? I mean you’re at a point in your life where you’re happy within yourself and the people you care about can’t even respect your happiness? You’re absolutely right, why can’t people be happy for you? Sometimes we have to accept the fact that others aren’t happy within themselves yet and the slightest sight of someone else’s happiness might put them in a place where they feel as if they don’t want to believe you came out of your storm and it wasn’t them first!
If you feel as though you can’t come to your friends or people that’s close to you about your happiness, then it’s definitely time to reevaluate the people you allow in your life! If you feel as though you have to down play yourself, to make others feel good about their life, then it’s time to reevaluate the people in your life! You shouldn’t have to feel ashamed or have to apologize for finding happiness and loving yourself! People who love you, will respect and love you for flourishing!
Making excuses as to why people don’t clap for you when you tell them your biggest accomplishments in life, should tell you whether or not they’re excited for you! If you know you’re a person who genuinely loves others and you’re happy for them no matter what, you deserve people in your life that’s just like you! You shouldn’t have to compromise your happiness, to keep people in your life who doesn’t want to see you happy!
In life we have the right to do things that makes us happy, even if it makes those around us uncomfortable! It might seem selfish to others that you’re putting your needs before theirs, but if the shoe was on the other foot they’ll do the exact same thing! It might be hard even letting these people go because you obviously love them, but you have to love yourself more to not tolerate others belittling your growth!
I guess once you get to the point of truly accepting your happiness and loving yourself unapologetically, the mere thought of anyone bringing any negativity to your life will be cut short! People will learn that now, you’re putting yourself first and anything or anyone that threatens your happiness will no longer be apart of your life! Period! Sometimes we have to make changes in our lives, even if that means cutting ties with people we love to death! A life long of happiness is way better than being unhappy anyday!
