LOVE YOURSELF, that what people will tell you if you asked anyone about how to make people love you or how to be successful in your relationship, at least that was my mom's advice when I was a teenager and suffering from insecurities. At that time I didn't put that advice in my mind because I didn't get how does a person not love himself, but I think I am starting to understand how does a person not love himself. The thing is so simple, how can you love someone you barely know, shocking? Believe me when it comes down to it, that is the reason why you don't love yourself. That is what I got when I sat down with myself and asked myself why don't I love myself. I was shocekd like you, but I barely knew myself and if you were being honest with yourselves, you would find that the majority of you would find the same problem.
The trip to love yourself more is a very long trip, one that will never stop as long as you are alive and it has to many steps and tips and tricks. I only came down with what would work with my, with what I think would enhance my self confident and increase the amount and love and respect I have for myself.
- Spend fifteen minutes before bed to ask myself about my dreams, goals, beliefs and priorities . Ask myself what I did that day and loved and what I hate and would want to never do it again, basically have sometime for myself and just with myself.
- Start my day with reading my goals and analyze where I am standing at that moment and what should I do to achieve it.
- Be proud of my actions, the good and the bad because they all define me.
- Never lie
- Treat people like how you would love to be treated like.
- Make a list every month on my best qualities and what I would like to change in my personality.
- Don't compare myself with someone else, but compare myself with myself.
- Read more books about forgiveness and living the life you want.
Bottom line is, understand yourself more, because believe once you do you would love who you are.
LIFE IS SO MUCH BETTER WHEN YOU STOP CARING ABOUT WHAT EVERYONE THINKS, AND START TO ACTUALLY LIVE FOR YOURSELF
