What does “Loving Yourself” mean?
In fact if you consciously know you are doing just that, you will not feel good. And if you are doing something that doesn’t make you feel good, then you’re not loving yourself.
Loving yourself means that you always pay attention to how you feel inside and, in a kind manner, do all that you need to do to feel good.
You can make changes to your interior or to your exterior. Although, most of the times the only change needed is in your interior. You will notice that by taking care of your interior, most of the times your exterior will begin to take care of on its own; you’ll see.
Taking care of your interior means that you pay attention to what’s going on inside your body and inside your mind.
Loving Yourself has nothing to do with others
Don’t do it to gain respect, love or appreciation by others, and try not to depend too much on experiences, events and people to feel good. Yes, they will affect you of course, and sometimes negatively, but you, and only you, decide how much.
Remember, you’re not doing this for others, you are doing it just for yourself. This has to be the right mindset to begin.
Loving yourself means that you do whatever you need to do to find your own internal sense of stability
How to Love Yourself
To do that you begin by paying attention and knowing yourself so well that you learn to respect, trust, honor, believe, accept and forgive yourself.
Begin by focusing on just one item at the time and notice the change. Once you are able to stay focused for longer periods of time, keep at it for 30 days. Little by little you'll be able to focus on more than one item at the time until it becomes your second nature.
Remember to make loving yourself a fun journey. Don’t work too hard to achieve it.
I don’t want you to feel frustrated, impatient or mad because that defeats the whole purpose. Be easy on yourself as you develop your new internal stability.
Why to Love Yourself?
When I decided that it was time to begin loving myself, it was because I needed to feel different, I needed to feel better, I needed a change and somehow I felt I had to begin there. I was so ready to feel peace, love, joy, and contentment.
And I made it. By focusing on the items above, and by doing some energy healing, I was able to release some emotional blocks and started to see me different, inside and out. I felt so much better even though nothing had changed on the exterior, it was all inside of me.
If for some reason you think you don't deserve love or think you don't know where to begin, you are not alone. The good thing is that all you need to do is to make the decision. Yes, it's that simple.
