We are on the threshold of the month of love. And when we talk about love, we cannot help but emphasize that it is the heart-warming ingredient we all long to have. Love is what we want to touch, feel. Love is everywhere – there is no nationality, race, age, or gender for it. Everyone longs. Everyone deserves it.
In this article, we emphasize the next important ingredient you need on the path to self-improvement – love. And if you have not read about the first necessary – inspiration, you can do it here.
The world becomes a better place when our actions, deeds, and thoughts are wrapped with love. From the love you give to yourself and from the love you give to your parents, relatives, partner, friends, colleagues, pet, the flower in your living room, and so on, the list can be very, very long.
Why? Because love is vast, it has no exact definition. Everything around you needs love – your hair, skin, body. But to learn to truly love the world around you, you have to start with yourself. Love yourself! This is the next step towards personal development. That is why with this article, we will talk about the love for yourself and the love you give to everyone else.
Have you ever wondered why you should love yourself? In the first place, you cannot expect to be loved by others if you are not by yourself. Loving yourself is a powerful combination of accepting yourself, realizing who you are, being kind to yourself, and most importantly, respecting yourself. Love is a charge! And if you are filled with it, you will magically enlighten everyone around you.
Many people fail to find love for themselves and constantly doubt
themselves. They do not support themselves. They do not realize that this is slowly but surely leading them to a state of health and psychological problems. They want to achieve personal happiness, but is it possible when your soul is filled with doubt about yourself? We all want to be loved and supported, but receiving and giving love is closely related to its initial generation within you. To receive, you must give, and to give, you must have what to give. And the other important thing is that, if you do not love yourself, you can not love anyone else, because you just do not know how to do so.
The secret to gaining self-love lies in first starting to treat yourself with respect and support. This process is not difficult. It is based on successive steps that you must dare to take. First, begin to accept your physical body as it is. Then establish yourself and begin to respect your values, morals, and the choices you make.
Whether it is a career, a way to spend your free time, the people you surround yourself with, or the hobbies you have. Look in the mirror, say your name so you can hear it in your voice, and say to yourself “I love myself! I also love this body, thanks to which I am here and now, and I breathe, and I rejoice, and I laugh, and I fight for the happiness that I deserve.”
Unconditional self-love is highly contagious to everything and everyone – people, situations, events. It has the power to displace fear. It makes us resistant to the stress and pain that inevitably accompanies us in life. It helps us to accept them and minimize them in our lives. By loving oneself, one manages to take care of oneself and others and to have a full-fledged relationship with them, because he or she knows and feels how to do it!
