“I only accept the love I think I deserve.”
“I didn’t know it was possible to love so much until I had my child.” I’ve heard it all the time and now I say it all the time. In fact, it’s probably one of the most cliche things I’ve ever heard and now that I have my little prince, I know it’s also one of the most true things I’ve ever heard. It’s nothing short of amazing, and beautiful. But the more I thought about it, I realized the sentiment is equally beautiful as it is sad. Why is the birth of my child the only time I’ve realized a love so strong? More importantly why have I never felt a love so strong in myself? Why is something as important as self-love foreign to so many people?
