I couldn’t agree with this quote more. It is so important to love yourself before you can love others. It is so important to have your own life before you can share a life. And on top of everything, you need to have you own world, your own empire, before you can mesh two empires together. We all need to be comfortable on our own skin, and standing on our own two feet before we even think about letting men into our lives. I can’t stress how true this is. Over the last 2 years, I have truly learned to love myself and stand on my own two feet. When we were together, I didn’t really know myself enough to truly love myself, because when you are in a relationship, you believe that boy will love you no matter what, so you don’t really fight to figure out who you really are and what he is really loving. That is why it is so important to be single. I have been single for almost 2 years now, and I have gone through thick and thin, but its been the most exhilarating and important 2 years of my life. Those people that have never been single for longer than 2 months boggles my mind. They are such lost souls. They are dependent on people, and majority of them really don’t even know who they are. So if any of you are ever lonely, just think about all the positive things that comes out of being single. 

The part I am currently lacking in right now is building my own world and empire. I loved him so much to a point where I made him my motivation, and the moment I lost him, I also lost that drive and motivation I had to build my empire. I am not one of those women who would ever marry for money, or even look for rich husbands. Being rich is a bonus, but I want to have my own empire and my own world before I become a Mrs. We all have different career bumps, and right now I am going through mine. High school me put all the motivation and drive I had into the love of her life instead of herself. Wrong move, but it happens, which is why I am not too upset. When you love something so much, you tend to get blinded and you put everything into it. So instead of regretting past mistakes, I am going to stay positive and continue to do little motivational things. And sooner than later, those little motivations, will increase and increase and hopefully give me my full potential back. You don’t need to have everything figured out, and you don’t even need to have a smooth sailing life. You just need to take those baby steps and keep moving forward. Keep your eye on the prize. Keep dreaming. Keep loving yourself. Keep standing on those two feet of yours, and not in someone else’s arms. Keep doing little motivational things. Before you know it, everything you’ve been dreaming about since you were 14 will all come true!
