Self-love Is Not Selfish

We have all heard the above statement but how many of us really believe in it? Do you truly give yourself enough credit for all that you do? Or do you just wait for people to acknowledge what you have done? Make yourself important to yourself. You are special. You deserve to be happy. Being happy is not just something you deserve; you owe it to yourself. Being happy is your right and your responsibility towards yourself.

Stop waiting for others to gift you some flower, just stop waiting!! Buy them for yourself, because you deserve it!! You do not owe anyone an explanation for buying yourself something you want. You just go ahead and gift yourself, because self-love is not selfish.
