The Importance of loving yourself
There is no one that will love you better than you. Your love for yourself will never fail you because you have an intimate knowledge of who you are and what you have to offer. Until you love yourself, you will never be able to be loved by anyone else. Another important factor to consider is if you love yourself, you are less likely to except anyone mistreating you. When you look in the mirror you have to see the beautiful person that you are and believe in your self-worth.
THREE IMPORTANT WAYS TO LOVING YOURSELF
Ban negative thoughts about yourself: You can’t hold on to negative thoughts about yourself, because those negative thoughts grow and blossom and shape who you believe you are. Negative thoughts can be external also. People can also project negative perceptions of you and this can also shape who you believe you are. Reinforce positive self-worth.
You can’t be perfect: If you set unattainable standards or strive to be perfect, you automatically set yourself up for failure. No one is perfect and you have to set attainable standards. If you find yourself looking to be perfect and feeling negatively about yourself when you are less than perfect, change your current way of thinking. Focus on the effort that will be required to work towards a goal, then steadily apply the required effort.
Rephrase your internal script: When you realize that you are thinking negatively for yourself, recognize the feeling, identify the source of the feeling, and then consciously rephrase your thought making it a more positive one.
In conclusion, positively embrace yourself and love yourself.
