How to Love Yourself
Understanding the Meaning of Loving Yourself
Loving yourself means a lot of things to a lot of people. Like I said in my pervious post.
Loving yourself is a journey of understanding who you are, where you are from and where you are going to.
Loving yourself begins with you placing a value on your life. Identifying what makes you unique and beautiful and imperfect at the same time.
Identifying how much you are worth to yourself. Once you understand is principle, life becomes easier.
I realized I didn’t value myself when I continually did and said things to hurt myself. Till one day I sat down to think about all the things that were happening in my life, I wasn’t proud off. Are you aware that you are where you are now because of your thoughts and past actions?
So I asked myself this basic question “If you truly love yourself would you say negative things about yourself, would you let people walk all over you and take you granted, would you keep to unhealthy habits that only makes you sick?”, and my answer was no!
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Loving yourself is simple and 1 Corinthians 13 4:7 sums it all up… All you got to do is ask yourself is ‘this thing that I am doing, am I showing love to myself? Adding value to my life? Simple questions.
Lovingly yourself means being deceplined enough to focus on your goals and achieving them.
It means forgiving yourself for the mistakes you have made in the past as well as forgiving others.
You can not love someone if you don’t love yourself. You can’t give what you don’t have.
Loving yourself means eating healthy, keeping you body and mind healthy, having positive thoughts about yourself and your life and build healthy habits.
I could go on and on about how to love yourself but the truth lies in the principle of 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Remember no one can love you if you don’t love yourself, and I hope this article would help you achieve that. Till later Dollz….
You know you love me
