Love Yourself First

Before I start I want you guys to do something before reading this. Look at yourself in the mirror and recite the following about 3 times: Your name, I LOVE YOU. Mean what you say while saying it. Don’t pay attention to anything else. Now anwer this? How did you feel? What feelings occured? Can you feel the words I love you? Some people are drived to tears while performing this simple, but very powerful assignment. Let’s really be honest, In order to love someone else you have to love yourself first. When you love yourself first, life will most defintely take care of the rest. If you cannot love yourself how can you embrace the love of someone else? You are likely to feel undeserving, while yearning for love and closeness of another person. That’s where hostilities occur.

When you love yourself, life takes care of the details because everything else is really minor compared to the faith in of one’s self. Nothing or no one can tear you down.

Self love is most definitely one of the best things you can do for yourself, trust and believe me when I say this, and some may not think so. Everyone has their very own opinion. But I say that self love is important, being in love with yourself gives you self-confidence, self worth and it will actually make you feel more positive. Self love defined as ”love of self’ or regard for one’s own happiness or advantage” has both been conceptualized as a moral flaw or as a basic human necessity.

When you hold yourself really high in esteem and actually know you are fulfilling your purpose in life, you tend to have more and more enjoyment and a more positive attitude towards your future.

Self-love can really motivate you to adopt healthy habits and to take care of your physical self. You may notice less anxiety and depression and you may notice that you’re more optimism. Self love is the best and it is indeed a better recovery from stress. Self-compassion is a way of relating to yourself that doesn’t involve harsh judging or even punishing yourself for every mistake you make, or every time someone may do better than you.

Self-compassion involves you treating yourself with the same kindness or concern and support that you would to a real true friend.

At times, when faced with difficult struggles, or even confronting personal mistakes, failures, and inadequacies, self-compassion responds with kindness rather than that very harsh self- judgement, recognizing that imperfection is part of the shared human experience.

Forgive yourself and love yourself. Always be true to yourself. You might not believe it, but how you treat yourself sets the principle for how others will treat you. Self-acceptance is the starting point to living a complete life when you show up with your complete self. Admittedly, there are times when you don’t feel at all loveable. It is normal and we’ve all experienced those moments. The honest truth. It starts and ends with YOU.

Your real personality is the most well built/powerful commitment you make to yourself. Your story of unworthiness is a lie made-up from others and increased over time, even though this isn’t really who you are. It is a constant statement and a developed description.

Never feed those doubts, positive or negative because you know what you give life to. Do not let your problems overcome you, use them to strengthen your real power. Work on being in love with the person you see in the mirror who has been through so much but is still standing tall. Stop caring about how you look, because true love from others, they won’t care about your skin tone, hairstyle, or weight.

In order to truly love ourselves, we can not let the way we look define our personal worth. It can’t be our only “calling card” for love, sex, or a relationship. It can’t be what determines our worthiness of joyfulness or family or a promotion at your job. Take a moment to think about it: the people that know and love us the most really could careless about our weight skintone or hairstyle or hair color. Yes the society we live in nowadays is focused, and obsessed with beauty.

Most of us are raised to admire beautiful people, such as successful actors, and models. Worrying about how Beyoncé look, or how thick and beautiful Nicki Minaj is It is what it is. But you are somebody and you are beautiful, don’t those with money and fame fool you. It ain’t all goody goody, trust and believe me.

Win yourself over and know that you’re an absolute 100% drop dead gorgeous catch, so don’t you even dare to treat yourself otherwise. Of course you may need to sometimes remind yourself ,and surprise yourself. Amaze yourself over and over with your musing ways. Don’t compare yourself, life is not a race so stop competing.

Self-love is actually a big journey. It definitely takes a lot of dedication, devotion, and a lot of practice. be determined to love yourself each and every day and you just watch how your best self is blossoming, and your greatest life unfolds. Think about how you really treat yourself on a daily basis as if you were another person, or dating yourself, in a relationship with you. Are you actually good to yourself? Is your mind good to your body, and soul? In my own spiritual journey, I notice at times we all:

  • *Beat our self up with harsh selftalk
    • We set ourselves up for failure with unrealistic beliefs.
  • Strip ourselves of things we deserve through self-sabotaging behaviors

Stop telling yourself you’re not worth it, and tell yourself you are worth it, and you deserve it. Stop beating yourself up. Love yourself first, and everything else will fall into place. I’m a living witness to this.

Loving yourself first isn’t selfish at all

Practice gratitude and aim true, write down 6 things that makes you smile, and things you’re grateful for. Be the real you, be the best version of you. Don’t just exist, live!! Find your purpose in life. Than you can share them with the world, if you want too. Listen to your body, take time to give your soul and heart happiness. Remember to always trust your intuition, it’ll never ever, ever, let you down. Appreciate every moment, and every time that we have on this beautiful earth.

Always be kind to others, and expect the unexpected. Be open, and be true to change. Always admit when you’re wrong, because nobody on this earth is perfect. Trust in yourself and know that anything is possible. Know that anything you put your mind to can be achieved. Straight facts. Always remember you are stronger than you think, and what others think about you, is none of our concern, or none of our business. Everyday that you wake up choose happiness, and know that no one is in charge of your happiness except you. Never be ashamed to ask for help, because the strongest people know when they need help, and the strongest ask for help.

Smile at that stranger everyday, because you never know, just by that moment, how much you made their day. Be careful, and be mindful, of who you open up to, because there’s not many that actually care, and majority just be curious. Now this is a fact, if someone wants to be in your life, trust and believe me, they’ll make they way towards you, they’ll make that time for you. Really though. Don’t worry about the details. Take time to find yourself, and when you find yourself, be that. It’s just that simple.

We don’t meet people just to meet people, trust and believe me, you met them all for a reason. It wasn’t accidental. You all crossed paths for a reason. Step out on faith at least this once in your life and live life with no regrets, and know that it is okay, to not have it all figured out yet. Know that you don’t have to always be strong all the time cry if you have to cry, give yourself time for everything to unfold. Don’t set yourself up for disaster, trying to please everybody. Real love requires inner work. First we must be happy with ourselves, be happy in ourselves, come to know ourselves, and to accept ourselves, and love ourselves. We have to find peace of mind, find our passion and our purpose.

Know that actions speak louder than words. Trust that(your) inner wisdom. Make sure to live the life you love. Some people wait all the way until Friday, all year for summertime, all life for happiness. Don’t you let that happen to you. Everyday, make a promise to fall in love with yourself. Practice self-love on a daily basis. It is vital.

Remember that you don’t have to, and you will not, put up with someone who is careless with your heart. And you don’t be careless with someone else’s heart. What you don’t want done to you, you shouldn’t do it to others. Very simple.

Always surround yourself with people who support you and inspire you. And know that in this moment, right now, you are exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Love yourself first, and everything will fall right in place afterwards.

Smile…. Beautiful!!!
