What does self-love mean to you?
To me, self-love means self-acceptance & self-compassion.
It means being AWARE of your thoughts, words, actions & reactions.
It means REALIZING that you are human.
It means knowing that you are NOT what happened to you.
It means LETTING GO of the idea of perfection.
It means being able to FORGIVE yourself.
It means trusting in yourself & your abilities.
It means being able to recognize your worth and your value.
It means being grateful for what you DO have.
It means showing up in your life and being
FULLY interested. (no half ass anything)
Self-love means being AUTHENTICALLY and UNAPOLOGETICALLY you.
But know that the journey of self-love is Not an overnight process.
You must go through pain, darkness, self-doubt, shame, guilt, loneliness, solitude, obscurity & many unpleasant feelings before you discover your own beauty.
Don’t go looking for love outside of yourself. It’s already within you!
if you don’t think you deserve more, you’ll always accept less and you’ll always settle.
You deserve love. You deserve a life free of suffering and abuse. You deserve abundance.
Here is a brief and good article called “If You Don’t Think You Deserve More, You’ll Always Accept Less.”
If you want more in your life, this starts with your thought.When you change your outlook you will change your life.
