Self-love is the greatest gift you can give yourself. To love yourself unconditionally is nurturing to the soul.
Self-love isn’t about being a narcissist, or not caring about others, it’s about appreciating and caring for you! From personal experience, the person we give the least amount of love, support and encouragement to, can be ourselves!
Trying to disappear and act small causes nothing but unhappiness.
Trust me I learnt the hard way. Trying to please others over yourself all the time also doesn’t work. You will never please other people and why should you have too! Saying yes when you mean no helps no one.
The good news is you don’t have to learn to love yourself the hard way. Instead, there is the easy way. Yeah!
Before I give you my tips on how to achieve this, here are some possible obstacles that may be preventing you from loving yourself.
One of the reasons could be that you are under the disillusionment that you are not worthy of love.
The difficulty in loving oneself comes from the idea that we need to be perfect. So to love ourselves we are in danger of putting conditions on it. So, if we don’t tick all the boxes we can’t possibly love ourselves, right? Wrong, you are never going to tick all the boxes so start to learn to love the wholeness of you, warts and all.
Remember we all have a shadow side and therefore, can’t be perfect.
Here are my top five tips on how to achieve self-love:
- Every morning look in the mirror and say the following words: I love myself completely Try doing this for around ten times, and for at least 40 days for a big change.
- Read regularly books on self-love. This helps to put the idea of self-love into our head. I adore Louise Hay‘s work.
- Remember you are here to serve a purpose. Some even believe that you choose to be born now. Know what that purpose is and go for it! Happiness comes from living one’s destiny. Love yourself enough to do this.
Lastly, remember everyone makes mistakes, never put a condition on loving yourself. You are always loveable!
