“People will never appreciate your love if you don’t love yourself first”

Toyin Abraham's timely message on self love

Nigerian actress, Toyin Abraham served a spicy, timely and motivation post today about the importance of self love.

This is coming at a time when people need to hear that loving themselves first before looking for love in others is not selfish because it is a form of self preservation.

Sometimes, when women talk about other women having self love, Nigerian men will claim that it is not right. They will say women who preach such messages are unhappy, bitter and angry single women.

But this is not true. These men don’t want women to love themselves first because they know it will mean less desperation on the part of these women to hook up with irresponsible men just to feel loved.

I agree with Toyin Abraham because if you don’t love yourself, you are teaching people how to mistreat you. You must love your neighbor as yourself not more than you love yourself. Nigerian women should know this and apply it accordingly.

Toyin Abraham’s timely message on self love

Read the post below:

“It is your greatest responsibility to love yourself because, that’s who you will be spending all your lifetime with. So, love yourself FULLY, DEEPLY, HONESTLY AND GLORIOUSLY.

People might call it SELFISHNESS but do not be bothered because people will always have something to say no matter what you do. Remember the number of people you’ve met in your life who already left?

The bitter truth is, those with you now will also leave you someday, and those you will meet in the future will eventually leave also, but the only person who will never leave you is YOU! So, don’t you think YOU deserve the love you keep trying to give others ALSO?

One thing I’m sure of is that, ‘people will never appreciate your love if you do not love yourself first’. You know why? Because, loving yourself makes you respect yourself and respecting YOURSELF gives you the CONFIDENCE that will make you behave with GRACE, HONOR and DIGNITY. So, naturally, people will treat you as such because how you love yourself has taught them how to love you.

The Bible says ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’. This explains how much God expects you to love yourself first before extending it to others.

Make your happiness a priority, it is necessary. And you can only find true happiness when you love yourself. So, love yourself today AND YOUR FUTURE SELF WILL THANK YOU FOR IT.”
