To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
We all want to feel loved. It makes us feel good, and it builds our self-confidence.
If we don’t feel loved it can bring up some intense emotions such as “I’m not attractive enough, skinny enough, good enough, I’m balding,” etc.
I was in the category of self-judgment. Doubting myself on certain occasions and not fully stepping into my power. This played out from time to time until I began to consciously become aware of it and began the healing process.
We should open our hearts to the most deserving person: OURSELVES! When we do this, we begin to feel worthy. We become more of our true selves and start to attract more and more love in our lives. Have compassion for ourselves. Our body is a beautiful vessel so we need to take good care of it.
It’s not selfish to love ourselves. It clears us so that we can love ourselves enough to love other people.
Let’s find a way to embrace and accept ourselves, even with our faults and imperfections. Let us take time for ourselves to focus our attention on what it means to LOVE OURSELVES; whatever that may be for you.
Cheers! Here’s to a full cup of Self Love! ~ xoxo
