Self-love is your relationship with yourself, full of compassion, patience, tolerance, kindness, and appreciation. You can still hold yourself responsible and accountable because that would cloud the actual purpose. So, self-love is about giving yourself some room to grow, a little grace if you make a mistake, and believing in yourself that you can learn from your mistakes.
Why is Self-Love Important?
You can't love someone if you don't already love yourself, as you can't pour from an empty cup. Your ability to give someone love ultimately depends on how you learn to love yourself and be thoughtful about it. In the larger picture, self-love helps to heal all wounds and traumas and guides others to do the same. And finally, you deserve self-love more than giving to others if you have worked hard.
How to Enhance Self-love?
Imagine someone is depressed, ashamed, sad, or embraced, and you love that person. The way you talk to them, you should speak to yourself more in that way. You can only give those around you what you give to yourself.
#Selflove requires #Selfcare, eating healthy, sleeping well, cherishing what you have, rewarding yourself, grooming yourself, and more. A trip to a Spa once in a while to treat yourself and be relaxed may be all you need to re-invigorate your energy and health. Long story short, if you have the strength to care for yourself, you can do the same for others.
#Defining #Boundaries is, although passive-aggressive, very important to keep negative energies away. As self-love is not confined to physical care only, you should also pay attention to your mental care. Your circle should know when not to disturb you or honor your privacy, when you are focused and when you are available. Even expressing your needs and demanding civilly are the keys to defining your boundaries.
