Love yourself—accept yourself—forgive yourself—and be good to yourself, because, without you, the rest of us would be without a source of many wonderful things.
Love yourself means to accept yourself as you are and to come to terms with those aspects of yourself that you cannot change. It means to have self-respect, a positive self-image, and unconditional self-acceptance.
As you love yourself, life loves you back. Mastinkipp said, “Love yourself so much when someone treats you wrong, you recognize it.”
Loving yourself means you accept responsibility for your development, growth, and happiness then you don’t waste your energies on blaming others and yourself and you’ll realize your potential that boosts your self-esteem and you forgive yourself and others for wrongs because no love is without forgiveness but look for compassion.
Love your self is to develop a sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance of who you are and what you feel and for what you’re passionate about. It gives you the courage to accept yourself with all weaknesses. When you focus on yourself with love and compassion and ignore what other people think about you, you actually eliminate a lot of negativity from your surroundings which ultimately take you out of depression. Now your main focus is to put yourself above all blame and negativity, you’re working on your development and growth and you’re near to your success.
Love yourself is the first secret of happiness because happiness means to love yourself and being less concern about the approvals of other.
It makes you less aware of what others think about you and enhances your self-esteem. The moment you start loving yourself, you feel beautiful because it enhances self-acceptance and reduce your focus on faults and negativity and fills your heart with love and compassion and then you not only love yourself but also spread it in all your surroundings with others.
Love is the only way to reduce negativity. If you want to reduce negativity from yourself and your surroundings start promoting love but first love yourself because if you are loved then you can easily promote love and compassion throughout your area. Love enhances the passion for care so care for yourself first because when you stop caring for yourself at the very moment others also stop paying attention towards you.
It’s love that reveals your true strengths before you and the world, so love yourself first. Loving yourself tells you how magnificent you’re and makes you realize that you’re the only one who can support you the most in the time of need. You’re the only one who is best well-wisher of yourself than anyone. You’re the only one who is the best healer of yourself than any other healers.
