Self Love

Self-love is a popular term today that gets tossed around in normal conversation: "You have to love yourself more." "Why don't you love yourself?" "If you only loved yourself, this wouldn't have happened to you." "You can't love another person until you love yourself first."

What is Self love?
Is it something you can obtain through a beauty makeover or a new set of clothes?
Or, can a new relationship make you love yourself more? The answer to all of these questions is No. Although they feel good and are gratifying, you can't grow in self-love through these types of activities.

Self-love is not simply a state of feeling good. It is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth.

Some things may be equally essential but nothing is more important than a healthy sense of self-esteem and loving yourself.

In my experience, these are the important reasons:

1. Life becomes simpler and lighter. 

2. You’ll have more inner stability and self-sabotage less. 

When your opinion of yourself goes up then you’ll stop trying to get so much validation and attention from other people.

You become less needy and find an inner stability and strength even when your world might be negative or uncertain at times.

and Lastly,

3. You’ll be happier. 

The main reason why value my self-esteem so highly is simply because it has made my own life so much happier and more fun.

I'd like to share some of the most inspiring, thought provoking and uplifting thoughts on getting to know yourself, raising your self-esteem and finding a self-love.
