“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.” ~ Oscar Wilde.
Do you know what it means to love yourself unconditionally? Do you know how to totally accept and embrace yourself fully? Are you facing difficulties with loving yourself?
Listen to your mind talk and you will know things. Chances are that you have been saying more negative than positive things to yourself. If your self-talk is unkind, causes you to feel down and erodes you of your spirit, then you can be said to be having some challenges with feeling good about yourself. On the contrary, should you love yourself absolutely, you will be supportive, compassionate and not be constantly criticizing yourself. Hence, it is important that you start to observe what you have been saying to yourself.
Overflowing love comes from consciously choosing to learn with your personal source of spiritual guidance about loving yourself. When your intention is to learn about loving yourself – rather than being to get love and avoid pain – your heart opens to your true source of love.
Despite all the things that you think may be terribly wrong with you, love yourself. Love yourself. Tattoo it on your brain. I can think of so many reasons why you should love yourself, but here’s just one: It is incredibly dull and uninspiring to be around people who do not love themselves. Ugh. Yes, it is! It is so boring to hear someone crib about their dull lives all the time, it brings your energy down.
You are the only person who can truly love you. When we expect others to love us more deeply than we love ourselves, we set ourselves up to resent them when they don’t. Only you can have deep compassion for yourself, because you are the only being you have control over. What glorious freedom to realize I don’t have to worry about how much someone else loves me or feels compassion for me – it’s MY job!
