Dear married but unhappy and unfulfilled, I have come to give you unsolicited advice 🥴
I want to address the women in particular as usual.
You see ehn, marriage is beautiful but you can be in it and feel so sad, left out, and bitter if you don't look out for yourself.
How can you do that?
📌 Self-Love. This means having a high regard for your well-being and happiness. Self-love means taking care of your own needs and not sacrificing your well-being to please others.
Self-love gives you the courage to be assertive, make decisions, and set boundaries in your lives.
Here are some of the benefits of self-love: Increased self-esteem. Self-love is bound up with self-esteem – which is vital for good mental health.
So please, love yourself so much. Be selfish. Put yourself first before anyone. If you don't, you won't even have any love to give.
My children once asked me who I love the most in the family and I responded "ME". I love myself more than all of you.
📌 Self-Care. Practice good self-care. You will love yourself more when you take better care of your basic needs. People high in self-care nourish themselves daily through healthy activities, like sound nutrition, exercise, proper sleep, intimacy, and healthy social interactions.
Buy that hair, bag, shoes, or anything you love to own and can afford without looking back. Don't be stingy with yourself. Some women dedicate so much to their children and spouse while they look haggard.
Clean up yourself. Your skin, your looks, your smell, and your hair should be in order and you don't have to break the banks to get that done.
