3 Steps to Loving Yourself Now
When you hear of self love what do you think?
Don’t worry, this is not a “you should love yourself so click on over to the shop now page and get yourself a deluxe sized…” This is about how you truly perceive yourself and if you don’t like that perception, how to lovingly change it.
Do you give more to others than you do to yourself?
It is important to love yourself first now because your self-worth, self-confidence, and overall positivity will dramatically increase. You see the world in a different light and everything will become brighter. This is you at your best and happiest and whatever you do in this state; you will do it from the best version of yourself. At this level, everyone around you reaps the benefits. Here are 3 simple ways to get you into blissful self love now.
What do you think about yourself? When you look in the mirror do you give your reflection criticism or compliments? The first step to loving yourself is accepting who you are and knowing you are in control (more on this in step 3). Appreciate yourself for your great qualities and habits and understand that you have the power to change any habits or things about yourself that you do not like.
Do you sometimes say you will accept or be proud of yourself after you hit a certain goal or accomplishment? This my friend, is out of order. Those who are in love with themselves find that they are attracted like a magnet to the things they desire in life. They come easily! You don’t have to get that promotion, start a business, or get married to be worthy of self acceptance. If this is what your love is contingent upon, you are giving more worth to these things and not you.
2. Respect Yourself
If your thoughts about yourself were broadcasted on the loudspeaker at Grand Central Station would they make your cringe? Ok before you beat yourself up, forgive yourself and remember you have the power to change.
Speaking kindly to yourself is a simple and immediate self love tactic. When you respect someone you usually hold them to a high standard and think very highly of them. Above all, it should be you in this position first.
3. Look Within
The power that was mentioned in number 1 is within all of us. We have the power to change and create the best version of ourselves. You control you. There is guidance in your intuition and gut feelings. Have they ever steered you wrong? Look to your intuition and deep inside your heart to find this power. Oftentimes we value ourselves based on the perception of others which leads to self-loathe instead of self love. We should be our biggest fan and biggest forgiver (not our biggest critic!) Our intuition guides us through this process. You have the power to control your perception of you. No one knows you like you do.
Bonus: Realize the truth about yourself.
You are amazing! You are made with all of the tools that you need to succeed life. You define your own success! You have a living loving soul and the power of intuition. There are 3 simple things you can do to begin a deeper self love now.
- Respect yourself
- Look within (realize your power)
