I Pray You Find The Love You Deserve

We are all worthy of love and affection. Though this might be hard to believe when we find ourselves at low points in our lives, we need to remember that we are all worthy.

The beauty of life is that we’re all connected to the universal flow of energy, and that same light that radiates from genuine happiness is the same light that resides within us all. All we need to do is accept it.

The hard part is accepting that we are worthy of good things like happiness, love, and even affection. When we find ourselves plagued by depression, anxiety, and an ever-changing world with uncertainties, where do we find the time to think of ourselves and the good that lies within us?

When I was younger, my mother always used to say, “When you find happiness and love within you, you start attracting it around you.” I am much older now, and I still hang on to those words and believe them wholeheartedly.

I refuse to live in a world where I am looked down upon for believing that I deserve love and happiness, and neither should you. These things, these good things are within reach for us all.

If anything, our belief in these things should become inviolable because it’s these things—love, happiness and joy—that keeps us sane in times of turmoil.

They remind us why it’s so amazing to be alive and why it’s so important to not just live through life but to feel through it too. To feel joy, to feel gratitude, to feel content, and above all, to feel love.

It’s strange how quick we are to think of all the negatives and all the bad things instead of the good. It becomes too easy for us to feel that we don’t deserve a good relationship or a promotion or even a fresh start at something.

Remember, the only thing holding you back from the things you deserve is your own limiting beliefs. Showing up for yourself and believing that you are worthy of all the good things life has to offer is the best step in the right direction.

Walk in that direction and do so with your head high and your heart open to a new way of thinking about yourself. A way that is constructive and confident, a way that knows what you deserve and believes in it wholeheartedly.

I pray that you find the love you deserve, the love that keeps you safe and makes you smile every day. I pray that you find the love you don’t need to search for because it’s always been within you.
