Self love is the best love

Tips to show yourself some love

Your thoughts (42)

We’ve all heard the words, “self-love is the best love”. It makes loving and accepting yourself seem easy and not at all like the long (and sometimes hard) journey that it really is.

If it were easy everyone would be happy, confident and emotionally well. But everyone isn’t, instead every day we find different reasons to be mean to ourselves. Being nice to your body takes work and you have to want to be emotionally well.

Here are four ways to improve your relationship with yourself this year

Surround yourself with people who lift you up:

In 2018, keep people around who make you a better person and support your dreams. Not all the people in your life will be a positive influence but the people who make up your inner circle should be.

Keep people close who make you laugh, celebrate your successes and lift you up when you’re low. People are like energy - surround yourself with good energy.

Do well at school:

If you want to do well with your school work this year form a study group with your friends. If you are studying at a FET college, meet up with your classmates to practice and revise what you learned. That way you and your friends are influencing each other to do well.

Forgiveness:

Find it inside of you to forgive those who hurt you last year. Maybe a friend disappointed you or she said mean things to you during a fight. Forgiving the people who hurt you is good for you because it allows you to let go of the bad emotions that you are carrying inside you. When you forgive you feel lighter and you don’t allow people to have control over how you feel.

Most importantly forgive yourself. If you disappointed yourself this year by not working hard enough or allowed yourself to be distracted from your work. That’s in the past now.

Let go of everything that didn’t go your way or hurt you last year. And let go of your feelings of self-doubt. Don’t stand in your way by clinging to the pain.

Define your own success:

It’s so easy to get lost in the success of others. We see our friends doing well and compare ourselves to them. When you compare yourselves to others you always seem to fall short.

Instead of focusing on what others have, focus on achieving your goals at your own pace. If you are chasing after other people you will lose sight of your goals and achievements.

Write what you want to achieve this year down and put it up on your wall to remind you every day what you are working towards.

Make happiness and self-love a daily resolution.

God made you the way you are and God loves you the way you are having a low self esteem is

God made you the way you are and God loves you the way you are having a low self esteem is unnecessary because God loves you the way you are 😘

True beauty isn't in a shape of nose or your facial formation . it isn't the complexion of your skin or the shape of your body . True beauty is from your spirit . It means to be pleasant,adorable,glorious, and full of favour and grace. Dont get too concerned about your physical body looks or you may see something u dont like. dont wish you were someone else for God doesn't copy of you. Nobody in the world has ever been or will be exactly like you. Nobody Nobody smiles the more beautiful than u see, for you look like your heavenly father. The next time u look at yourself ,instead of wishing u were someone else or feel bad about yourself,look on the inside,there is something better on the inside You are Beautiful as u are!! The greater who is in u than the one who is in the world😍!

Just believe in jesus name everything be possible

Hi Springster, we all struggle with confidence. Try practicing what's in the article. Focus less on what you don't like about yourself and more on what you do.

I show love to myself by having confidence in myself and by always reminding myself dat am beautiful .

This helps a lot ey....I see myself different in many ways and I think my mom doesn't believe in me,my sisters have chosen the serious careers when they got to high education and I choose Beauty so my mom doesn't take me serious at all.But I found confidence today after knowing how to love myself and I'm prepared to work hard so that my mother will see how this is important to me.

March 20, 2022, 8:57 p.m.

I agree, From now on I'll believe in myself because I lacked confidence and every time I'm doing something thing I'll have this feeling of belittle myself and always I used to say I'm wrong even when I'm not 😢😭
