If you are here, I am guessing that you are looking for ways to love yourself better. I get it! I know how hard it is to be in your own skin and not feel good about yourself. But you are not alone. You may have been beaten down by people who didn't think you were good enough or maybe you just don't feel like you can be loved because of what has happened in your life. Either way, this post will give you some ideas on how to start loving yourself more so that you can be happy and more confident every day!
Love yourself in your space of feeling good
When you feel good, love yourself for it.
When you're feeling strong and confident, give yourself a pat on the back and tell yourself "good job".
When you accomplish something great or go through something hard, give yourself credit for being able to do it and acknowledging how far you've come.
Love yourself when your friends are loving on themselves too! It's important to surround ourselves with people who support us so that we can support them as well!
Love yourself in your like moments when you may feel bad or act bad
You are a human, and you are allowed to feel good and bad. You are also allowed to act in ways that make you feel bad or look ugly. When we allow ourselves this space for feeling good, it allows us to better accept our not-so-good moments as well.
We can love ourselves when we're feeling ugly, or at least try to put on some lipstick before leaving the house. We can love ourselves when we're acting ugly by taking a moment for self care after yelling at someone who cut us off on their motorcycle (I'm looking at myself). These may seem like small things but they add up over time!
Love yourself in your worst ugly moments
When you love yourself, it's easy to focus on the good. You see the way your smile lights up a room, or how people are drawn to your energy and warmth. You appreciate how kindhearted and generous you are with others, and that these qualities make up the core of who you are as a person.
But what about when things aren't so great? What happens when we're feeling low? How do we love ourselves when our self-esteem is at an all-time low?
Loving ourselves isn't always easy--especially when we have made mistakes in the past or if our current situation isn't ideal for us--but there are ways to help us find self-love even during difficult times:
Learn to find love and forgive yourself in all parts of your life
Learn to find love and forgive yourself in all parts of your life.
You are human and you make mistakes, but that's okay! It doesn't mean you're a bad person or that you should feel guilty about it forever.
You have to accept that there will always be things about yourself that aren't perfect, but that's also okay! Everyone has flaws, so don't beat yourself up over them too much.
Be kind to yourself when things go wrong or if something makes you sad; this is an important step towards self-love because if we don't treat ourselves well then nobody else can either!
There are many reasons why we feel bad about ourselves, and it's important to understand that these feelings are normal. We all feel this way at times, but what matters most is how we respond when those negative emotions arise. Do you choose to love yourself in spite of everything? If so, then congratulations! You're already one step closer than most people who struggle with self-love issues.
