Loving Myself While Loving Him

People always like to say that you shouldn’t get involved with someone else until you’ve learned to love yourself. I disagree with this statement to an extent. Loving yourself is so important and should always be something you’re working towards or working on keeping around.

What if you’re in a long term relationship and you slip up? Your anxiety and depression get worse and worse and you don’t notice until it’s too late. All you want to do is get better and get back to feeling your best and loving yourself. You spend your time focusing on your relationship and you also spend your time learning to love yourself again.

Honestly I know how hard it is to deal with mental illness and trying to get better. I get that in some situations the last thing you want is to find a relationship. You don’t want to mask your illness with someone that brings you happiness, but that doesn’t mean you throw away something great because things get a little hard.

You should fight together to get better. They should be your rock and support you in anyway you need to learn to love yourself. That should go both ways in the relationship finding balance between taking care of yourself and taking care of one another.

I’ve found my rock. He understands what I’m going through and I’m working everyday to get better. He give me reassurance when I need it and I am forever grateful for what he has given to help me.

I can never let that go, so I am learning to love myself again while I continue to show him so much love. This is exactly where I am supposed to be and where I need to be. This is where I want to be and I will continue to learn and grow with my love together.
