It is nobody else's job to fill your cup. And it's not a selfish thing to fill your own cup first. It's important that we reframe this way of thinking within ourselves.
If you are unsure, then do a brief experiment. You have so much to gain - and the cost is just a few brief moments.
Spend a moment or two filling your cup to the absolute brim. Do the things you have always hoped others might do for you.
Buy yourself a small gift that you have hoped for from another; and take a brief moment to thank yourself for that gift. Take yourself on a "date night" to somewhere you have always wanted to go. It is a truly powerful moment when we sit in a restaurant or cinema or whatever and just enjoy that moment.
At the point we truly step into self-love we realise that we are never alone. Stop and smell the roses for just a moment 🌹
Create an atmosphere that is healing; and makes you feel a deep peace within yourself -- and at one with the universe. For example, consider learning to meditate, take a spiritual bath, or take a few moments to look back at how far you have come.
Speak positive affirmations to yourself. Build yourself up, with a view that you might create a wholeness within yourself. Make it all about you for just a moment.
How does this make you feel?
It might make you feel a little uncomfortable at first... so don't stop there -- keep going. Push through that discomfort and you will find a kind of peace that you possibly have never felt before.
As each of us starts to recognise the power that we have to create our own story and our own happiness, we start to really recognise our own self-worth. We start to expand outwards; and touch the lives of those around us in a way we never thought that we would.
Once you have learned how to consistently build yourself up, then you create this power cell within you that cannot be drained. At this point your light will shine so bright for other's that you will either fill their cup too, or you will shine a light on what they need to look at within themselves.
Perhaps at this point you will realise that you are expansive; and a force to be reckoned with. Every single one of us has this power within us. We can either give energy to what is going wrong within our lives or build ourselves up. All of us have a choice.
When you get to a point that you are creating positive change within yourself and others, you are truly winning. Just be yourself. To be authentic is the greatest blessing you can give to both yourself, and others. Uplift yourself. Feel the abundance within you.
You will find that it is soooo worth it.
