5. – Self Love: The Start Of It All
Start Everything With Self Love
Discover one of the most important elements in your journey to self-discovery is learning to embrace who you are, and practicing self love.
This is proven to be one of the most difficult things to do. – Self Love The Start Of It All
Not Good Enough!
Everything you do feels like it eventually amounts to nothing so you don’t even try?
You find yourself spinning in a downward spiral because you feel like you don’t measure up?
For those who feel this way, this might be their “reality” or truth. Research has shown that the feeling of unworthiness is one of the common contributing factors of various health complications.
Self-discovery is greatly dependent on whether you practice self-love. Love for oneself is a great asset one can have in life. First and foremost, you should ask yourself who are you?
To a very large extent, many of us are deeply engrossed in the day-to-day hustles and bustles of life until we forget who we truly are and appreciating our self-worth.
Do you love yourself?
Most people would probably evade the question, but it is an important and valid question which if we could all answer yes to, would change the way we feel about ourselves and give us self-confidence to achieve the dreams and desires we have for our lives.
It is also about accepting that we have our own special place in this world.
The very lonely feeling is the feeling of unloved and unworthy. If you cannot find anything to love about yourself, you are probably struggling with self-love.
Learning to love yourself is possible.
To love yourself you must challenge the negative feelings inside the center of your thoughts. We must acknowledge that our self-worth and self-acceptance are about the person we are, the person we are comfortable being around when everyone else has left and when we are alone.
By the end of the day, we must realize that we are all we have.
Step 1: Write All The Things There Is To Love About Yourself
Be honest as possible.
Do not let toxic thoughts hinder the process. Do these five simple things every day and you will find yourself thinking very differently:
1. Write down the positive qualities you possess and read them aloud to yourself often.
2. Learn to self-care and do something every day that you enjoy. You deserve it!
3. Look in the mirror and learn to love the person looking back at you and tell him or her every day that they are loved and why.
4. Fill your life with people who love you and tell you often what a special person you are. Accept their words and their love without questioning it.
5. Embrace who you are and all the qualities you possess.
Step 2: Identify The Things That Make You Feel Loved
We feel loved and appreciated having people give you special gifts, or to send you cards and messages. Maybe you are the type of person who appreciates a hug as a way of feeling loved, or really enjoy spending time with your spouse or best friend.
The way we give love to others is often indicative of the way we want to be loved ourselves. Most couples enjoy expressing their love to each other. However, many of us have yet to learn a golden lesson.
Often what makes us feel loved is different from the way others give and receive it. Creating a loving environment in our family is the key to experiencing deep passionate relationships.
We are happy when people shared their love with us, but for some people, the spoken word is not enough. Telling your spouse or child you love them but never following up with the things that make them feel loved can create feelings of confusion and concern in even the best of relationships.
Learning to recognize the things that make us feel loved and then identifying what the significant people in our lives need to feel loved is a beautiful self-growth adventure that will improve the relationship.
It takes little time and effort to learn how to do this, yet as we learn and use this simple technique, our relationships can be transformed.
Always remember you are worth it!
Embrace all your strengths and weaknesses as those qualities make you unique and who you really are. Thank yourself for bringing you this far in life regardless of the outcome because you know what?
