My husband (and father of my child) is apparently deeply in love with a woman. She must be pretty special. I mean, he sees her every day and tells her how much he loves her. He even cooks her dinner and always tells her how beautiful he thinks she is. This woman gets “no reason” flowers on occasion and “just because” slow dances in the kitchen. When she’s having a bad day (or year), he is there to hug and support her. His text messages are filled with her number; just checking in or letting her know he much he can’t wait to see her later. It’s hard for them to go out together often, but he has so much fun with her when they do. My husband mostly just loves hanging out with her, simply watching TV and falling asleep together. He says they are soulmates.
Doesn’t she sound like an incredible woman? She seems lucky, lovely, and amazing to have somebody love her so much.
My husband tells me these things about the woman he loves the most. He tells me these things because this woman is me.
His descriptions and actions of his love would make me think she is truly something special…so why is it that I so often don’t feel that way about myself?
He thinks I am beautiful, and I should think of myself as beautiful, too. He thinks I am a wonderful mother and wife, so I’m going to trust that more. He thinks I can do anything and appreciates me no matter what. He is my biggest fan, but I realize that I need to be my biggest lover of all.
I want to love myself the way my husband loves me. Even more so. I owe that to myself so that I can truly reflect love back to him and our son. After all, we want our little guy to grow up loving himself, and also loving another amazing soulmate someday. Surrounding him with the gift of healthy self-love is one of the best things we can do for him.
So here goes nothing.
I am a beautiful, intelligent, strong, fun, person. Wife, mother, daughter, friend.
I am an amazing woman and I love myself completely.
And I just happen to be deeply in love with one incredible man and one little boy.
