SARAH SPEAKS: I FELL IN LOVE

Can I tell you a secret? I'm in love you see and guess who it is? Me, yes me, I fell in love with myself.


I'd say it was a slow journey to self discovery. I probably wasn't always this confident or had this much faith in myself. But the day I stopped comparing myself and stopped living life seeking validation from others, that was the day everything changed. I guess I've always been confident to an extent but this is different.

In our world today, it's easy to compare and get lost in that trap. It's easy to forget ones worth but it's so important. This week I kept hearing the topic of self love everywhere. Falling in love with oneself is so important. You can't really love others if you don't love yourself first. When you know your worth and just how awesome you are it shows. You don't look to others to define your worth and you definitely set high standards and don't take anything less. Its not necessarily pride but confidence and assurance in who you are. It's that feeling of "hey you, I'm awesome so you better treat me right".

So when you stare in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see just how beautiful you are? Do you even know it? What if I told you that the nose you hated so much, some people are desperately praying for. Maybe you feel you're not good enough and don't deserve happiness, well you're wrong. I wish you knew just how special you are, just how loved and unique you are. I hope you'd fall in love with yourself, more so everyday too.

Because no one on earth can be you and hey have you forgotten God created you in his image and likeness. God can't create something ugly, I mean have you seen the clouds, hills and plains. How much more you. Even more amazing is that even with all our faults Jesus loved us enough to send his son who laid down his life for us. Never ever feel you're not good enough. If someone so perfect loved you that much, why can't you?

I wish you'd fall in love with you, so you'd see just how amazing you are, because you are, never forget or question that.

What step did you take to self love? Have you fallen in love with you? 

Don't be a stranger, talk to me!

  1. Love this post! Self discovery is key and I pray to reach the highest level of it. There is so much going on in the world today that can discourage you from loving yourself, from people's comments, to the things you see online but you know what these things are going away anytime soon so why not turn a deaf year to these things and live your life! Ugh.

    Thank you for this!

    1. I pray to truly discover myself more every day too girl. And the world will define or shape us if we let it, so here's to turning a deaf ear always. Thanks you too girl, for reading and commenting too.

  3. To think this has been on my mind the past few weeks. Sometimes people look at me and say how are you shy you totally express yourself openly and all I can say is I'm thankful for growth. If you don't love yourself no matter how people appreciate you you'll never resonate with it. I'm glad you shared this though low-key I was thinking it was about BAE. You got me sha 😏

    1. That's it girl it doesn't matter how awesome others think we are, if we don't feel the same way about ourselves it'll all just be nothing. I'm thankful for growth too as it wasn't always like this. And lol which bae 😂. Though honestly that was my intent in going with this title, the old journalist trick😉

  4. I agree with you Princess. It used to be so hard for me too. I wanted to love everyone and everything around me but it wasn't working no matter how hard i tried.

    Until i realized that i had to love myself 100% in order to love others in the same measure. I can't describe how easy life has been for me since then.
    P.s subscribe to my youtube channel - ShugasDiary- thanks.

    I look forward to your next post dear

    1. Life's experience's are truly the best teacher and I'm glad we learn every day. The Bible tells us to love others as we love ourselves. So if we don't love us, what love are we giving indeed. And yes life is so much easier and sweeter when we love ourselves. Thank you for reading and taking the time to leave a comment. I think I've subscribed to your channel already but I'll check again.

  5. This is an area of growth personally. I'm coming into my own gradually. We can definitely not give love if we don't love our own self. Great post Sarah and good to hear that you love yourself.

  6. Everyone talks about self love nowadays and I'm so here for it. Self love is really important, it boosts your confidence and makes you content with yourself. This is such a visual age and it's so easy to resent who we are if they don't fit with the images that surround us. I know that I have struggled with that in the past. But what's the point if we're all the same? That's boring. So everyday I'm learning to accept myself, my kinks and my oddities. Not always easy but it's step by step. Great post Sarah <3

    1. Yes it does girl and contentment is so key in this day and age for real. Its hard as you said especially with the comparison trap but only you can be you so I love what you said about accepting your kinks and oddities. It is after all what makes you,you, different from the rest of the crowd too. Thank you for reading.
