REALationships: What About Me?

I know you have heard that quote: "If you don't love yourself, how the h--- are you gunna love somebody else?"

I heard it most recently by Ru Paul (yeah, I'm a Drag Race fan). But I really think people hear this and it goes in one ear and out the other. So often people are worried about what significant other they need to find fast, when it really should be, "am I my best self right now?".

Are you living up to your full potential? Do you truly love yourself flaws and all (and not obsess about weight, hair, etc.)? This is just something to think about. So often people have baggage that they aren't even aware of, and it affects potential relationships. Baggage could be from past relationships--with a previous S.O. or even a parent or sibling. Think about if there is any baggage that you are carrying around right now. Maybe you have been hurt by a friend or someone you confided in and you haven't ever confronted the situation. All of these things affect you and hinder you from being your best self.

So...I am going to give you a love yourself challenge. I came across this website the other day called and it allows you to send your future self an email! You can even choose the date for when you want it to be sent (a year from now, 2 years from now, next month).

I won't tell you what to write yourself, but it can be about anything--a love letter to yourself--expressing all of the things you love about you, an encouraging letter or even a congrats for making it this far letter. Anything you want to say to your future self--give it a try! If you need some more ideas--there are tons to read on the website. You can even write more than one.

Feel free to share what you are going to write about in the comments. Maybe it will inspire somebody else :)
