The First Person You Need To Love is YOU!

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Happy Valentine’s day! As it is the day completely dedicated to love I decided to write about the most important person in your life who you should love. You! Although this might sound egocentric and narcissistic I really think that it’s not and in a little bit I’ll explain you why. Learning how to love yourself is the first step towards loving others and being loved the right way. 

I think that the reason that so many people suffer from low self esteem and depression is because they feel guilty for taking care of themselves and think that they’re selfish for making their happiness a priority. 

Relying on others is something we all do in certain situations but we can never rely on others as much as we rely on ourselves. In every situation you’re in or with every decision you have to make there’s nobody else accept you who need to actually decide what you are going to do. You can ask for advice or help but it’s still you who makes the final decision. If you don’t love yourself and who you really are you are simply be miserable because you’re stuck with your thoughts and body that nobody else has. You can’t choose to be another person but you can change and grow for the better. You need to be your best friend because at the end of the day it’s just you and yourself. 

We all have days when we just don’t like anything about ourselves. Sometimes it can last longer that we would like to. That is common but shouldn’t happen too often. Realizing those moments and finding a way to work on getting into the right place is so important. Just take as much time as you need for yourself and try to reconnect with who you truly are. Not who you think you should be or who you think others want you to be. It’s completely normal that we’re not the same person we were when we had 10 years or when we were in High School. Change is the part of the life. The problem is when along the way of changing we did it with the wrong mindset. Taking some me- time and doing the things we enjoy is the way to find your true self. You are the most you when you’re happy and surrounded by people who accept you for who you are. 

You can be loved by a thousand people but if you aren’t loved by yourself it doesn’t mean anything. That’s the foundation for everything in your life. Loving yourself also means accepting who you are but also working towards the better and happier you. There is no point in being angry or complain about your body if you’re not willing to actually to change your routine and start working out and eating healthy. It’s your choice to leave things as they are and accept them or work and be the person you’ve always meant to be. When you love yourself enough you’ll have power to realize what you want and need to do. Don’t compare to others as it’s doing you nothing good. You are unique and beautiful and there is nobody else as you in the whole World.

What kind of relationship do you have with yourself? 
Id there anything you think you need to work on?
