Self Love

Self-love for me has been a difficult subject to grasp and I’m still learning everyday and I think I always will be.

So, what is self-love or what does it mean to me? If  you were to ask me a few years back “do you love yourself” I would be afraid to say “Yes I do”. Purely because, I once would have seen this as an arrogant trait, vain to an extent and make me sound full of myself. I once see loving myself as a negative and that’s where I was wrong. In order for us to be our true selves we need to love ourselves, and while it may not be a simple road, it is possible for us all. We need to get to know ourselves, the good, the bad and the ugly.

From a young age we are taught how to treat others. This includes how our actions affect other people, to be kind to one another. We are taught to accept other people as they are, but we are not taught the same things about ourselves? To be kind to our self, how our own actions affect us and to accept our self. How you treat you is a very important thing, as this often dictates how you treat all the things and people around you. Its important to look after your mental space, your physical health and your overall attitude. Once you can truly understand your strengths and weakness you can use them correctly to be a better person.

"Loving your yourself is accepting who you are but not letting it limit you from wanting more through self improvement."

Don’t be the “This is how I am, like it or not” type of person, if you know yourself your referring to a negative trait. Be the “This is how I am, but I’m working on improving it” type.

Just remember none of us are perfect and that’s okay. We are all on our own journey, with different time frames and goals. So keep working on loving you throughout your process...

We are all a work in progress.

Love
