One of the things most of us struggle with is self-love. We tend to think that self-love is selfish. We put ourselves down, and let negative thoughts snowball and eat us up.
Some of us look for a person to love, hoping to get in return that kind of love that will sweep us off our feet, and make us complete.
I can reassure you that self-love is not selfish. It is a necessity to keep ourselves alive and fulfilled. Remember, we are all fearfully and wonderfully made. We are all worthy of the best things life can offer.
Self-love is a series of building habits to boost ourselves. But how can we say “I love me” with much gusto and sincerity? Here are some ways we can express it.
Look at the mirror, take selfies, and compliment yourself. Don't be shy.
Stop comparing yourself to others. You are your biggest rival.
Start a journal. Jot down your goals, what you want to improve, and your achievements.
Celebrate small and big wins.
Meditate; A moment of peace clears the mind and promotes positive energy.
Savour your meals. Food should nourish our body, heart and spirit.
Do something physical like yoga or jogging. It keeps you fit, active, and happy.
Say no, and set boundaries.
Fire up your passion and creativity.
Make room for mistakes and improve. Don’t be afraid to fail
Try new things!
Find a reason to connect with your inner circle — family and friends alike.
Declutter. Literally and figuratively.
Let go of the past wounds. Lesson learned. Forgive yourself.
Breathe. Relax and recharge.
As Lucille Ball said, “Love yourself first and everything goes in line.” Self-love does not happen overnight. We go through it at our paces. Relapses may happen but we can always continue where we left off. If we are kind to ourselves, it manifests inside out. We naturally spread this love as it overflows.
