I date myself very often. The most beautiful feelings in the world- “You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company. Love yourself first, because that’s who you’ll be spending the rest of your life with. Demonstrate love by giving it, unconditionally, to yourself. And as you do, you will attract others into your life who will love you without conditions."
If you don’t love yourself how can you expect others to love you? If you don’t love yourself, you might accept a type of love that is less than what you deserve. At times it can feel like it’s easier to love others than it is to love ourselves. We can give amazing advice to other people about how they can develop their own self-esteem, but when that conversation is over we can still struggle with loving ourselves.
We can give great advice to others and talk to them in such a thoughtful and empowering way, but then when we talk to ourselves; we’re not thoughtful, we’re hurtful. And, instead of encouraging ourselves, we’re blaming ourselves for our past.
We’ve all been there, laying in bed in the middle of the night beating ourselves up. But the good news is, we can change how we think about and talk to ourselves. You can feel good about yourself.
One of the most important lessons we can learn in life is to love ourselves because how we treat our self, will directly impact how we treat others. Our confidence will come from self love. Our compassion and empathy will come from our ability to forgive and see the best in our on self. Quotes about self love can become mantras and change the way you speak to yourself.
Loving yourself is not a selfish act, but it’s a fundamental skill to generate the strength needed to love others. #loveyourlf #musttodo #selfdate #nature #sky #sun #summer #beach #beautiful #pretty #sunset #twilight #clouds #beauty #light #cloudporn #photooftheday #love #green #skylovers #dusk #weather #mothernature
