I needed to see and reblog this. Love and anything else you care so much about is blind! It’s so easy to forget to put yourself first. You wouldn’t wanna pass up a blessing because you were too busy putting all your hope and effort into something that shouldn’t even matter anymore. Please stop and think about yourself every once in awhile. Love yourself. <3
