(I woke up early this morning and couldn't go for my run because the noise from the treadmill would wake up the house, so I wrote this blogpost instead. I may regret writing it later, we'll see. It's still too early to be fully coherent)
Life can be hard when you love something you're suppose to hate. Here's what I'm talking about.
You see, I LOVE this song. No seriously, I REALLY LOVE this song:
But here's the problem. I HATE the part where he says, "let me love you until you learn to love yourself". The angry feminist in me stops and say, "Hold the phone...did I really just hear those words?!"
For 3 years I taught the Young Women in my ward! I LOVED these girls like they were my own flesh and blood and when I prepared their lessons, the 3 things I always tried to emphasis were:
1-Their divine individuality. They should never be scared to be who they truly are. Heavenly Father ADORES them and made them PERFECTLY. They are already perfect
2-Their divine inner strength as women
3-how important and what an honor it is to be a STRONG and INDEPENDENT women
So when I hear words saying, "let me love you until you learn to love yourself" I want to yell back at my Iphone, "No! They should learn to love themselves before anyone else loves them, Ne-Yo". You think he can hear me?
So all my ladies out there, before I go for my morning run and listen to this song (maybe 3 times because it's got the perfect beat to run to, lets be honest), remember, there is nothing more sexy and attractive than a woman who loves and respects herself.
Ne-yo got it right with this song, however.
I still love you, Neyo, but I love myself more :P
(K-Everyone is now awake so I can use the treadmill now. Goodbye)
