The One Who Got Her Ring After She Put Herself First

In the aftermath of my life blowing up, I saw the Self Love Pinky Ring. I got it as a daily reminder of the importance of loving myself first as I did at the end of my marriage. I've worn it everyday. The picture is from a recent manicure. -Anonymous   Submit your own story here.

The One Who is Wildly Herself... and Loves It

I decided to choose myself because I was tired of people choosing who they thought I should be. It made me miserable. I choose to love myself for who I am, what I look like, and for my own unique personality, no matter how much of a goober I am. I am me and I love to venture out and do things not everyone would or likes to do. And that's okay. I am ME: a beautiful, untamed person who loves wildly and accepts everyone for who they are, not who I think they should be. —Kelly Ray   You...

The One Who Turned an Ending into a Beautiful Beginning

My Journey to choosing myself started the day that my husband left me. He walked away and left me alone with my three small children. Not only did I not have a job, I didn't have skills that would allow me to get a good job - one that would pay all my bills AND allow me to raise my children the way I wanted to. When he left, I fell to the floor and cried. After 15 minutes of crying, a little voice inside my head whispered, "Get up. Get up! This is not the end of your story; this is...

The One Who's Healing by Committing to Herself

In 2019 I met a man who I thought was the love of my life. I didn't think it would ever be possible to find someone I liked and loved so much, who ticked every box. Six months into our relationship he bought me a ring—not an engagement ring or a promise ring, but a ring that sat on my pinky finger and symbolized love, teamwork, and trust. We spent a wonderful year together, but the day after Valentine's Day, 2020 he broke up with me. Taking off his ring was excruciating, and it made me realize how much meaning...

The One Who Lost Her B'Shert But Continues To Find Herself

My husband of 16 years passed away in a tragic boating accident in 2018 while alone on our boat in the British Virgin Islands. He left for the trip on December 19th and intended to return on the 24th for Christmas Eve. He passed away on December 20th, the morning after he arrived. He was the love of my life. We had known each other for about 30 years and it was always our plan to have a sailboat. I'm lucky we got to realize that dream. In 2000 we took sailing lessons and in 2002 we got married and...

The One Who Improved Her Whole Life by Loving Herself

I spent the majority of my life trying to keep people happy...everyone but myself.Last year, I realized that I was always the giver in my friendships and most of my relationships. And I finally decided to honor myself—to choose myself—by eliminating those one-sided relationships from my life. It was difficult, it was lonely at times, but it was imperative for my physical, emotional, and mental health. The day I decided to choose myself, my entire life changed. My outlook on life and even my performance at work and in school improved. My relationships with the people who TRULY cared about me...

The One Who Found Strength for Her Children Through Strengthening Herself

This past January, I was 5 months pregnant with my twin girls, working from home full time and also raising my (then) 2 year old son. Then the unthinkable happened: I was laid off from my job. Suddenly, we were left with only my husband's income for our rapidly growing family. Just a few weeks later, right before I was set to give birth to our twins, COVID shut everything down. And, in the midst of all that craziness, our twins were born a month early. They spent that month in NICU. So for a month, I drove an hour there...

The One Who Fought For Herself... and Won

I choose to love myself everyday. My Self Love Pinky Ring signifies all the struggles I have had and the strength I have needed to overcome them. I had a rough start in life. I was born in the 70s to drug addicts and a mom who suffers from depression. Homeless for a large portion of my childhood, abused by my parents, brother, and older men, I lived in a constant state of fear. And when I emerged from that upbringing, my self worth and value was nearly gone. It’s taken me 43 years to fight back and win against all odds. I am...
