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!
