Trust me, no one can love you better than you yourself and no one can care for you better than you yourself. Self-love lies in acceptance and affirmation of oneself with appreciating all the flaws. It is self-care and compassion you give to yourself that results in a healthy mind and body with great self-esteem, happiness, total balance, and well-being.
Throughout the years, I discovered the importance of living a happy and well-balanced life. I believe you have to treat your mind, body, and soul with love to obtain true happiness and that age is just a number.
Have you heard of the law of attraction? It is nothing but it is about one's thoughts, feelings ad action. When you love yourself, things about yourself, you will actually influence your thoughts, feelings, and actions in your way. And I strongly believe in it.
We have just developed a misconception that "love" means you have to love others, care for others, sacrifice for them, dream for them, or whatever it may be. But the truth is if you can't love yourself you won't be able to do any of these things mentioned above to the fullest.
In the law of attraction, loving yourself to the fullest makes you a person of your dream, because that's the way to realize your full potential, to take the right steps, and to make perfect moves.
You were born loving yourself and knowing your value. Due to pressure from parents, teachers, or peer group, you may have tried to become what the wanted you to be to gain there love and you end up not loving yourself. This is generally followed by an absurd conclusion that you are not enough, which leads to spending your entire life trying to prove your worth and trying to get others to love you.
Simply, there is no replacement for self-love. If you don't love yourself, you will continually be disappointed in life. You won't be able to see opportunities right in front of you. Your relationships will be strained. Everything and everyone around you is the reflection of your self-love and lack of it. The best part is that you don't have to try to fix the outside world. EvrEverythingything changes when you fix your inside world.
When you love yourself you allow the universe to surprise and delight you. So how can you choose to love and accept yourself more? Start by doing little things for yourself
Buy yourself a special gift.
Make a list of your positive qualities and read it daily.
Whenever someone compliments you, believe it
Keep a list of these compliments as evidence to refer to when you need a reminder.
Look in the mirror each morning and night before bed, and say yourself " I love you, you are absolutely wonderful and worthy of all good things".
In fact, it is amazing how quickly you can attract what you want when you love yourself, treat yourself well, and know you are good enough.
With little magic of self-love, you can allow in what you want because you know you are worthy of it :)
