There is Love ❤️ in sharing !!
Here are eight (8) ways to love yourself
1) Create Balance
Many people make sacrifices to prove their love for others. In the process they sometimes neglect their own needs just to make others happy. When this happens, there will come a point when the person who gives so much would feel empty and used. Love yourself and know your limits of giving.
2) Take Care of Yourself
One way to love yourself is by taking care of yourself. Eat healthy, exercise and maintain an active lifestyle. Save something for a rainy day and spend a little of your hard earned money on the things that make you happy. Keep your home pleasant and tidy that you will always have a place to relax and sleep. Love yourself by maintaining a healthy body, mind and soul.
3) Believe in yourself
Of all the people around you, it is you who needs to believe in your own capabilities. Know your strength and best qualities and use these to enhance your personality. Stop focusing on what others have or can do. Focus on what you have and believe in yourself.
4) Stop Listening to Putter-Downers
There are people who like putting others down just to make themselves feel good. Ignore these bullies and what they have to say. If it is not constructive criticism then it is useless. They have a right to their opinion about you, but that doesn’t mean you should be affected by what they have to say. Again, believe in yourself and prove them wrong.
5) Stay away from Negative People
Just like putter-downers people who constantly complain and focus on their problems are bad company. Stay away from negative people because they will just pull you down and influence you into a life of negativity. Surround yourself with happy, supportive and positive people if you care about your mental health and would want to live a stress free life.
6) Love your Work
What you do for a living is a big part of your life. Not many can find work that they love to do. But you can always learn to love the work you have. Find things that you love about your work and again focus on the positive things that will make you want to go to work with a smile.
7) Do things for the right reasons
Many people don’t realize that they do things for the wrong reasons. May it be to impress someone or to earn enough for retirement, at some point you will realize that your goals have been wrong and you have been wasting most of your time. Do things for the right reasons. Reflect on your tasks and ask yourself, is this really important to me?
8) Get Spiritual Support
Religion plays a vital role in a person’s overall well being. Your relationship with God will guide you to finding the true meaning of love.Understanding God’s unconditional love and living a life in his example will help you love yourself more.
We must also learn to forgive ourselves, learn from our mistakes and gracefully move forward.
