Self Love and Loving Others

{Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. -Ephesians 4:2-3}

Recently I have witnessed an abundance of bitterness, jealousy, and insecurity due to the competition and comparison we force upon each other. There is nothing worse than seeing such wonderful, beautiful people hate on themselves because they compare themselves to others or others have emphasized their insecurities. God has made us perfectly through His eyes, and we need to embrace our insecurities and face them head on because they were made FOR us. Not to tear us down and make us lack self-love, but to learn the true meaning of completely loving yourself. 

There is so much bitterness in the world because someone has something we do not, someone has a better body, someone is smarter, someone is more beautiful, someone is better at something than we are. We as humans are threatened by someone who is better than us causing hatred towards each other. Attacking each other for being better than us at something is not how God intended for us to behave towards each other. We should LOVE people’s strengths and weaknesses.

By loving our insecurities we are putting peace to our soul. We are feeding our soul the love it needs to grow and sore. By loving our insecurities we are allowing others to love them too. By loving our insecurities we are capable of loving others the way we love ourselves. The way we love each other is a reflection of how we love ourselves. Let’s make our hearts so full of love for each other we do not have to worry about competing with each other or comparing ourselves to each other. 

~So at the end of the day, love yourself so much you are content with God’s love and your love. Love each other the way you love yourself. Speak highly of your neighbor, pursue generosity, and do not give a damn what anyone says about you.~
