The art of self-love ! 5 Practices to achieve it.
“To love someone and to be loved” is the purpose for many of us, to share your love with someone But if you don’t have any self-love, how will you share? Self-love is the will to live better, making efforts by loving ourselves thoroughly. Affection, care, time or support are not to give reserved only for partners or Family but for ourselves as well because you will not understand the value of true love until you love yourself, fully and unconditionally.
I guaranteed, There is no individual in the universe, who knows you better than you. You have spent your life being yourself, creating yourself and rebuilding yourself. Your happiness, weaknesses and strengths, all lay within you and you can identify them, how? Through Self-love, my friend.
Self-love is the seed you sow to grow as a person. All your purposes of life, your hearty relationships with yourself and others, it all starts by loving yourself first. When things get hard, we tend to feel lonely and for some people, Loneliness is what they feel most of the time. Can we escape loneliness? how do we evolve without getting distracted by flashy things?
By creating and practising Self-love but is it achievable overnight? No, because great things take time but you will feel the changes from the start. Here is my guide to achieve and practice self-love every day.
How many times do we neglect some emotions or truth only because it makes us uncomfortable or it’s hard to admit it? It’s time to stop doing that. Accept the moment despite how tough the situation is because acceptance is the first step to solve that tough situation. Along with that, Accept all the good qualities you possess and acknowledge all your imperfections. There isn’t a single human being without any flaws furthermore, Your flaws make you more human and beautiful. I also know my issues and I accept my flaws and weaknesses to work on them.
Be transparent with yourself, accept and embrace how you feel. don’t hold anything inside of you, let it come and then let it go.
Have you ever found yourself distracted in the middle of the day? ( I take that as a Yes) tensed and worried, even though its, not something you can solve right now, yet it invades your thought and mind? Such negative energy can exhaust us until we cut them out. The source of your negative energy could be from an unhealthy relationship with your partner or toxic friendships which only weakens you.
Whatever that source is, CUT IT OUT. Don’t convince yourself to still keep them in your life. You don’t need them and they are not your friend if they can’t make your life more enjoyable.
Besides, How good are they if they keep you stressed out?
Mind your Thoughts
Our brain is such a masterpiece. All great inventions and ideas started with just merely a thought and when nurtured right, they made it on our history book. It’s important to mind our thoughts and actively shift our thoughts to a more productive and positive view. Our thoughts become our action and our action eventually become part of our life.
If you think negatively about yourself then that’s how you will feel as well so let’s stop ourselves from giving a negative pep talk. Rather try to promote positive thoughts and ideas, then let your mind dwell on them. Produce positive energy by thinking positively today and every day until you won’t even have to put efforts to think positive, your subconscious mind will naturally do so. Don’t believe me? Try it
You are always kinder to others than to yourself so what’s important to ask is “How kind are you to yourself?”
It’s essential to learn how to be kind to others, how to give without expecting anything in return and how to respect everyone equally. Respecting other people’s opinion and being compassionate with people around you will lead to being more kind than today.
Next thing, ALWAYS Be kind to yourself. It’s okay for all the mistakes you made in the past, forgive yourself because that’s how we learn. Don’t live in your past events and waste the present moment. Don’t criticize yourself for not being flawless, be patient and have gratitude for yourself. Remember, You are one of a kind and you know how cool that is?
Only you get to be you, so go make that a great thing.
Show your crazy side.
We all are a little silly, little idiot yet still adorable and all these things happen when we don’t take ourselves seriously. We all have a child inside us who is carefree, honest and silly and we have to protect that child at all cost because that shows us how to live more happily.
if anyone has told you to act sober and behave nicely in social gatherings? note my words, they are pretentious. Don’t listen to them instead, go scream on people’s face if that’s what you feel like doing. show your awkward dance moves or make those ugly faces without hesitation. Don’t let any person hold you back from being you and if anyone stops you, be concerned about them since they are taking life too seriously. Being fake and submissive takes you nowhere, so be you, love yourself and show people how it’s done.
Thank you for reaching the end of the post and remember to love yourself.
