Love Yourself!

If you want to improve your love life, improve how you love yourself. If you don’t love yourself enough, you’ll find ways not to find love. The love you have for yourself is in a way the only love you have in your life because all the other love is a mirror of it.

Be kind to yourself! Forgive yourself! Encourage yourself! Believe in yourself! Appreciate yourself! Have faith in yourself! Listen to yourself! Be gentle with yourself! Be generous with yourself! Stop talking so negatively to yourself! Love yourself!

  • Simple and beautiful message we often forget.  Thank you for sharing.

  • Love Yourself! It’s where it all starts! In your search to find your-self , u r going to have to build up your “core”, the stuff- “your-stuff” you came here to this earth with. And believe me you’ve got plenty of great stuff!  When u r born , it’s all intact, ur perfect. As time goes by, the hurts of this life start to build up and sometimes even, when u love deeply u can lose pieces of yourself. Ur left with a feeling of loss, as if you were lost and feeling empty inside.. Along the path of your journey this will happen. We all have to learn these lessons; it’s what u decide do with these u look at your-self and treat your-self that matters. And it Should matter to you! U know U better than anyone else. Only you can replenish and build up your core again. To find those pieces of you that you lost…..  It starts then with self-love and finding and having compassion for your-self. I read somewhere that compassion is the soft space where u let go and allow yourself to be in the LOVE that you are…just lovely!!   Everyday you get up, you wake up, ur making choices. Your thoughts, what u tell your-self,  the words you choose to tell your-self;  even the stories you believe about’s all YOU! ..You have the power to choose what you want to think and believe about your-self that day AND everyday. It’s all in your-self talk to your-self… Therapists, moms, dads, BF’s-..they can tell you that you’re OK..that u r the bomb..the best of the best.. But until you tell your-self  THAT….and you start to believe it, see it..see yourself with the love that God put inside you since the day he made you..NO one on this earth, No one can convince you of has to come from inside of you.. And it’s there! .so think of it like brushing your teeth, everyday look into that mirror and tell your-self that ur awesome, amazing..Tell your-self that you are worth it!.. because you are!
    God gave you life for a reason. U have a purpose. Ur life is part of a plan. U don’t know who you might help someday down the road of life.  So, give yourself that spoonful of love everyday!! What r u waiting for???
