The concept of self-love is lost with the onset of this millennial world. People seek validation from everyone and get disappointed when they don’t get what they expected. We still haven’t learnt to embrace our insecurities because we feel ashamed of it.
Nobody is perfect in this world, and we should learn to embrace our insecurities. Because if we don’t do it, who will? It is extremely crucial that we understand the importance of self-love. Our biggest weaknesses will turn into our strengths if we work on them.
Why do we want strangers to validate us? Why cannot we be happy and content with our qualities? Every human being is different, so you cannot possibly compare any human beings on the same level. Tell yourself that you love the way you are, and you love the things you do and, observe the change in your personality.
You need to focus on yourself and seek validation from your inner soul and stay true to it. Start loving yourself and notice how things fall into place naturally. Love your flaws and all of your qualities. You don’t need anyone else to tell you that you are perfect. We are all imperfect in our own unique ways and, that is what makes us a better human being.
Start your day by looking in the mirror and smiling at yourself. You survived another day. You were lucky enough to wake up to a beautiful day and, things will be great for you. Learn to love yourself and embrace everything about you with honour. Self-love should always be your number one priority.
Imagine treating someone else the same way you treat yourself. Would you like it? Are you kind to yourself? Do you have the same love and care for your mind and body that you have for the people around you?
If the answer is no, then it is high time that you change your behaviour towards yourself.
Don’t self-abuse or self-harm, because it will not toughen you up, it will only break you down. Take a step forward towards loving your flaws and having faith in yourself.
Even if everyone fails you in life, you at least have your own back. Trust yourself as much as you would trust the people in your life. Our behaviour towards ourselves and our life is toxic at times.
We are never taught this in schools or colleges because people have a perception that self-love is similar to self-obsession.
There is nothing wrong with prioritising yourself over others. You should learn to do it because sometimes that is the right thing to do. It should not be done at the cost of you being selfish and stingy. Invest in yourself and learn to take care of your mind and body. For only when we are truly adjusted with our own beautiful and carefree spirit, we can wholeheartedly give and receive love. It is because; when we love ourselves we learn to share the same love without being jealous or resentful. We become more accepting and selfless because we all deserve love, even on the days we aren’t at our best. Start your day with looking at the mirror, and say I love you to yourself every time. Make this as your morning ritual. Welcome positivity and embrace yourself!
