Don't Forget To Love Yourself

June 21, 2011

Every one of us wants to love and be loved in return. However, there are times that we oftentimes forget to love and give attention to ourselves. You have to bear in mind that even though the love we have for a certain person or people is just so overwhelming, don’t ever forget to love yourself as well.

First off, loving yourself would also mean you have to take care of yourself. You have to make sure that you’re always in good shape by watching what you eat and the likes. You have to ensure that what you ingest or do would do no harm to your body.

Love yourself by following the desires of your heart. Yes, doing what you love to do will surely give you true happiness in life. Don’t let other people to stop you from doing the things you love to do. Don’t be discouraged with the negative things you hear. As long as you believe that you’re not doing anything wrong and you’re on the right track, and then go ahead, follow the desires of your heart.

Moreover, love yourself by enjoying life. Like I said, as long as you’re on the right path and you’re with the great people or you’re with the wonderful friends of yours or with your special someone, then, you have to explore and enjoy life together with these awesome people. And enjoy what this world has to offer.

Furthermore, you need to love yourself even more even though you failed a lot of times already. At times, most of us have tendencies to be discouraged with ourselves, once we haven’t met the expectations we have for ourselves. Instead of having those disappointments, you need to always remember that everything happens for a reason and there’s still a brighter future ahead of you. Don’t dwell on the negative things that happened to you in the past and in present time but be more appreciative on the accomplishments you have, whether it’s big or small. Don’t focus on the negativities and always look at the brighter side of life.

Love yourself by accepting your strengths and weaknesses. Basically, learn to be happy and contented with yourself, despite the imperfections you have. By accepting yourself for who you really are, others would accept the real you as well. In addition, once you have so much respect for yourself, other people would also notice that, and it has truly a huge impact on how they would treat you.

To sum it all up, you can’t be able to give genuine love to others if you don’t know how to love and give importance to yourself. So, if you want to receive love from others, you need to love yourself first.
