Learn To Love Yourself First :)

12 Sep

            Learning to love your own self is a hard task. Start this by making a decision of what you want to have in your life. Beginning to learn to love yourself, it can be a difficult journey but completely worth it. You should just accept that you are the only one who is responsible for the results of your experiences in your life. So here are some steps on how to love yourself more. I believe this can be helpful.

  • First, honor yourself. Realize that you are a unique person. Just be yourself because that’s what makes everyone different. Trust your self-decisions and instincts and don’t let others hold you back or decide for you but it’s also good to listen every once in a while.
  • Second, respect and accept yourself. Respecting and accepting yourself is the way of understanding that everyone is unique. It means knowing your good and bad qualities, your mistakes and achievements, your weaknesses and talents, and flaws. You will find that life becomes much less of a burden.
  • Third, forget what others think of you.  Others are there just to guide you, not to decide for you. Living in fear of what will people will say or think of you is difficult. You will lose your confidence and you won’t be able to show the best you got.
  • Fourth, forgive yourself and others. Learn to forgive when there’s a problem that happened. Remember that everyone makes mistakes including you.
  • Fifth, let go of your worries. Loving yourself requires you to let go of your worries. Instead of worrying, spend your time thinking about what you can do to help yourself and others. Stop worrying, just do your best and God will do the rest. Things will come if it’s meant to be.
  • Sixth, be kind and positive at all times. Start thinking positive about yourself, the love you have for yourself will grow. Always praise yourself every day. Think of the development that you have/need and motivate yourself to improve it more.
  • Seventh, acknowledge your efforts. It’s not always about winning or having success in everything that you do. Sometimes, you will lose or fail. You have to accept it. Often times, it is the effort that counts. Acknowledge that you’ve done your best, even if you have failed to it.
  • Eighth, set or plan your goals. Nurture your dreams. Start thinking and deciding on what you really want. Start planning. It is a better start to a bright future.
  • Ninth, have fun. Put some fun into your life. Life is meant to be enjoyable. Don’t take life too seriously. Always remember that you should live your life to the fullest.
  • Tenth, be thankful. Be thankful for all the gifts and blessings you have. Take care of yourself and others.
  • And lastly, live every day like it’s your last! Live to your present life. The past is all about the experiences that we had learned. Just enjoy yourself. Love! Play!  Always keep smiling!

                         Learning to love yourself can be one of the most important things that you do for yourself in your life. With work and persistence, you can learn to have a stronger love and relationship with yourself than ever before. Life is too short to be miserable. Just go have fun and just go with the flow. Try not to worry. With awareness, the problems will get lighter each day. Setting goals and having dreams are the start of our bright future. Keep thinking right and watch your actions. Nothing is impossible if you are determined! Just keep loving and smiling!
