This may be minor to some, but it's major to me. Note to Self: Don't let people dishonor or mistreat you because you choose to honor and treat yourself. Let's talk.
For the longest, I thought that if I constantly put others before myself that it would be honorable and showing humbleness. If I had an accomplishment I would keep it to myself because my fear of making someone else feel less than, if even for a moment to celebrate myself, shook me to my core. So I would stay in my corner with all my accomplishments and accolades just because I never wanted to make anyone feel like I was trying to "outshine" them because I wasn't. But what did it do? Nothing but kill my confidence in myself slowly but surely. Something as minor as even having a personalized license plate or a non traditional colored vehicle shook me because these things make you stand out. But I've worked hard to get where I am and so have you reading this. Stop allowing folks who shine on themselves all day and night for stuff that they are supposed to do make you feel that if you took a moment to celebrate, treat or honor yourself, that you are not being honorable or humble. The way you treat yourself should set the tone for how others treat you. So honor you. Treat you. Love on you and if someone has a problem with that, that's between them and Jesus. #Unapologetically #UnapologeticAF
