I have an everyday religion that works for me. Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line.
– Lucille Ball
Many of us usually think of falling in love as a process specific to dating, but in reality, we fall in love in so many different ways and with so many different things. I personally fall in love with people, places, literature, art, and even states of mind.
While many of us look for love from a partner and mate, we often miss out on the person who has some amazing love to give, and who is amazing: the person looking back at us from the mirror.
If we fall in love with ourselves, we will discover a source of love that doesn’t run out.You may say that often others do love us even if we don’t love ourselves, they may see the awesome within us, even if we don’t.
Well, the problem here is that if we don’t love ourselves, we may have a lack of self-confidence, insecurities and jealousies, self-dislike, unhappiness, and so on. If we allow this cycle of negativity to continue, we might behave in ways that push others away and then that love from others that we crave might not be around for long. So loving ourselves is important from that angle.
So in short, if we learn to love ourselves, then we’ll always be around someone who loves us, and be happier… we’ll be more confident, secure, positive, and fun! So let’s find out how to start your journey to a loving relationship—with yourself.
No one’s asking you have to pen the next great novel,(even if you possibly could!) but one of the best ways to get to know yourself is writing down your thoughts. Even if you only write a few sentences a day, you never know what you might learn about yourself more than anyone else could.
Appreciate yourself once
Go on a Movie Date- Alone!
Splurge a little… or maybe a million!
Whatever you choose to do, the most important step to falling in love with yourself is learning to appreciate yourself. Always remember what Wayne Dyer said, “You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.” But loving yourself isn’t all about spending all of your time alone. It’s about finding the trust inside to love all of you, especially the parts that might be different than the people around you because you have something no one else in the world has: YOU!
Let’s end it here!
