He will love me for me. Hogwash!

Was driving to a client’s office located quite far away and the thought popped into my head.

Remember the time, when friends talk about some crush they’ve got on someone. And they tell you, I’m not good enough for him. Then being a friend, you’d tell them it’s not what’s on the outside that matters and he’ll love you for who you are?

And the person would think, you’re right because he’ll love me for me.

Well, yeah, that conversation was running through my mind. And ‘ding’, the fact of he or she will love me for me is bollocks!

I’m not going to debate on this topic. But here’s why I thought of it as a lie.

How can someone love you for you when you don’t even love yourself enough to know others would appreciate you?

Sure, you may be too skinny, a little chubby, a little flat-chested, overly huge chested or some other pessimistic thought. But do you even love yourself enough to do something about it on your own as much as you use it as an excuse to deny yourself?

Stop saying or telling people he’ll love me for me. Instead, notice enough to improve yourself and be happy for who you are.

There are plenty of people who love people for being themselves. 🙂
