Mahal mo ba ako?

Tuwing tumitingin ka sa salamin, tinatanong mo ba ang nasa salamin ng Mahal mo ba ako?”

This morning I find it weird that I asked myself that question, and f*ck I paused for a minute or two before I could finally answer, myself.

Yes, we also need to ask ourselves if we love ourselves. See, love is not only for romantic relationship. It is meant for yourselves too!

We’re always looking for love from other people but the truth is love comes from within, love yourself.

Paano mo nga ba mamahalin ang sarili mo?

Ano ba nagpapasaya sayo? Travel? Do it!

Spending “me time? Do it!

Hair cut? Massage? Spa? Do it!

Go on in a retreat? Do it!

Serve God? Best decision ever. Do it!

Do whatever makes you happy as long as you don’t jeopardize humanity.

Loving your self isn’t selfish, it is a necessity you must be willingly to give yourself.

Mahalin mo rin ang sarili mo gaya ng pagmamahal na binibigay mo sa iba.

You cannot love others if you don’t love yourself.

That is why some of us felt unworthy kasi hindi natin mahal ang sarili natin.

We feel na hindi tayo kamahal-mahal kasi hindi natin mahal ang sarili natin.

Nahihirapan tayong buksan ang puso at mundo natin sa ibang tao kasi hindi natin pinagkakatiwalaan ang sarili natin.

We blame others for their shortcomings but the truth be told, it is us who fall off short loving ourselves.

You cannot offer an empty cup. So fill up your love tank and see how it will affect your life.

Ephesians 2:18 says “Whenever you feel unloved, unimportant, or insecure, remember to whom you belong.”

God made you! You belong to him, he does not see you worthless. Like I always said and will always remind you Don’t be too hard on yourself.

Eh ano kung nagkamali ka? Pwde ka pa rin bumangon at itama ang lahat. Hindi mo man mabalikan ang nakaraan pero pwde mong ayusin ang hinaharap.

Eh ano kung tingin nila masama ka? Hindi naman nila alam ang pinanghuhugutan ng buhay mo pero may pag-asa pa para magbago. Baguhin mo ang tingin mo sa sarili mo at magbabago ang pananaw mo sa mundo.

Ayusin mo muna ang sarili mo bago mo ayusin ang buhay ng ibang tao.

Trust yourself first before you trust other people.

If you want people to love you, love yourself first. It is you who can change that love you feel.

Huwag mo hayaan na palagi kang nasasaktan, because you deserve better.

Huwag mo hayaan na palagi kang umiiyak because You deserve to be happy and smiling.

Loving yourself helps you to love other people easier.

Say sorry to yourself too!

For being too hard.

For feeling that I am not loved.

Sorry to myself sa mga panahong hindi ko kinain ang mga paborito kong pagkain.

Pasensya ka na self kung palagi kitang sinasaktan.

Sorry rin kung mas pinili kong mahalin ang ibang tao bago sayo.

Patawarin mo ko kung lagi na lang kita binabalewala tuwing sumasakit ang ulo ko o nilalaganat ako.

I will make sure from this day on that I will take care and love you, myself.

Go find yourself!

If you need more “me time” do it!

Don’t base your timeline to what people has to say! You don’t owe anyone an explanation.

So ask yourself, Mahal mo ba ako?
