Loving yourself! Can you honestly say you love another person but not yourself?
Many of us put ourselves last and everyone else first. To truly love, you first have to love yourself. Of course, we all have flaws! Not one person is perfect. And we have to learn to deal with our flaws before accepting another’s. Flaws have many characteristics: attitude, features, habits, etc. Learning to love yourself can not happen overnight. A lot of people are more pin-pointed to physical flaws as to why they look down on themselves.
Have you ever wondered?
Have you ever wondered maybe someone else envies what you see as a flaw? Take your best feature and focus on that. Maybe you don’t like your nose, but your eyes are what attracts people. Or maybe your personality outshines physical traits. Remember we see ourselves a lot different than others. We are our own worst critic.
Lying is also a flaw in one’s personality. You have to remember you are not lying to others, you are lying to yourself. Some lie so others don’t judge them. in reality, you are denying yourself self-love. Those that loves themselves have no reason to lie about anything.
Being arrogant is a flaw in many of us. You are no better than anyone. I have always said “Someone will KNOW more than you or HAVE more than you do.” This is where you need to sit back and treat others as an equal. You may have more than others or know more than the next but that can always change in one day. So always be humble and see things in other’s eyes.
As you begin to start loving who you are a lot of these flaws will fade. You self esteem will sky-rocket and others will start to flock to you because POSITIVE ENERGY will radiate from you! People and yourself will see a glow about you.
Steps to take to change they way you feel about yourself
- Acknowledge your flaws. I listed 3, there are many.you
