If you don’t love yourself above all else you are failing yourself in the end. When no one else is around you are all you have and you need to remember that.
Just because you don’t look the way you want or you don’t have all that you’ve ever wished for does not mean there is something wrong with you or that you’re not good enough. If you don’t love yourself how are you going to ever expect anyone else to? While loving yourself might be easier said than done, it is one of the most important things you will do on this planet.
As you grow through life and face different lessons you will begin to realize how truly crucial it is to care for and treat yourself properly. You need to address yourself from a place of nothing but love if you truly want to find success here and that you need to keep in mind moving forward.
Life is short, and we shouldn’t be wasting our time trying to please everyone else. If you’re not happy then things need to change and if you’re taking care of other people all the while letting your own needs fall through the cracks you’re doing too much and wasting your time overall.
Below I am going to go over some things you can do to work towards loving yourself. These things will help you to really address the things that need to be addressed so that you can find the peace you want so badly. If you can do these things and keep working at them, someday in the hopefully near future you will be able to truly love yourself.
10 Things You Need To Do In Order To Love Yourself Properly:
1. Get rid of the people who want to hold you back and use you.
If someone is holding you back or bringing you down stop letting them hold power over you. It’s your life and you’re the one who has to live with the things you’ve done. Don’t let other people trick you into doing things you don’t want to do. If they have bad intentions, cut ties.
2. Look at all you have rather than all you’re missing.
Stop looking at all the things you want and do not have. Focus more on what you have and where you are in life. You’ve come a much longer way than you might think.
3. Spend time alone and get to know yourself.
Spend some time alone and really get to know yourself all over again. When we lose sight of who we are doing this is important. Without this, you’ll never be able to truly find yourself.
4. Find the things you’re passionate about.
Figure out where your passions lie and really take things into your own hands. If you want to do something, do it. As long as you’re not hurting anyone else or yourself, what’s the harm in having some fun?
5. Take a look at the positive side of things.
Try your best to shift our perspective. Instead of obsessing over the negative look to the positive. You have a lot going for yourself.
6. Quit rushing into things for the sake of other people.
Do not keep rushing into things just because everyone else thinks they’re good ideas. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. Really take the time to think before you act.
7. Stop judging yourself.
In this day and age, we judge yourself a lot. Stop letting your own mind play tricks on you. You’re doing a lot better than you are able to see.
8. Stop letting the opinions of others hold more value than your own.
The things other people say or think about you aren’t always true. You’re the only person who gets to define yourself. Their opinions are not as important as you’re making them out to be.
9. Try to see your worth.
Work harder to see how amazing you are. You are working towards things and really trying your best. The efforts you’ve placed in this world have made a difference even if you can’t quite see it just yet.
10. Treat yourself the way you treat others.
Stop crapping on yourself. If you’re doing your best then that’s fine. Treat yourself the way you treat others. Stop being so hard on yourself and so lenient with everyone else. You deserve patience just like everyone else.
