Happy Friday to you! Are you remembering to take care of yourself? Here’s another Self-Love message for February . . .
Although you’ve seen the abuser (in full flesh), you love him/her anyway, huh? Why do you keep forgiving and forgiving, only to continue to be dumped on? This makes you a glutton for punishment.
You must not care about yourself. If you don’t care about yourself, why should others? That makes the abuser have no doubt you love to be abused. How many times does he/she have to hang out their Red Flags before you can see they don’t give a hoot about you?
Does any of these scenes sound like your abuser?
- I’ve kicked you in the eye and told you a brick came flying at you.
- I’ve spit in your face and told you it’s raining outside.
- I’ve sicced my bulldogs on you and told them to maul you to death.
- Mine enemies have shown a video of how vicious and vindictive I can be.
- Looking inside that video, you’ve seen my ugly behavior which gave a rude awakening that made you tremble with fear.
Yet, you’re still in denial that he/she is an abuser. Are you so deaf and blinded? You hear no evil, see no evil, nor fear no evil. Why do you keep turning a blind eye? Moreover, are you that blinded by ones’ love? Perhaps, you just have a really thick head and nothing can get through it?
Need the abuser has to say again, “I can’t love another. The only person I love is myself.” Many have spoken those words that this abuser is a narcissist, egotistic, comical pathological liar, deceitful; revengeful, cheater, racist, and down-right abusive, and so much more. So, you’d rather listen to the abuser and believe nothing of what others have told you? Was that the case? If you continuously find nothing wrong with the abuser, then you are embracing the abuse. So, welcome to the world of abusers ‘cause you have become your own worst abuser. Make no excuses to see the abuser for who they are. Through all its massive abuse, the acceptance of self-love will seem meaningless to you.
I urge, “Stop lying to yourself!” Yes, our society is broken. However, do you have to remain broken to fit in? When the abuser strikes, open those eyes, see its “abuse of power,” and the poison brought on. Take back your self-worth and start believing in yourself.
