Let’s Celebrate Self – Love

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

      1. Hi there. Thank you 😀🙏 for your kind words! Glad to hear the ❤ post resonates with you. My post recent article (uploaded yesterday) is titled the “Gift of Clarity” ; that is the only thing I want for Christmas 🎄🎁! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  1. This just resonated with me so well! Our selves are the only people that will never leave us until we die. We are our real friends. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Self love is so important. I didn’t realize my lack of self love until my lowest lowest after my last relationship ended. I spent a lot of time finding myself and discovering my self love. To this day I do have moments but I am way better off now since finding my voice and self love. Thank you for your post. It was beautifully written.

  3. Great article! I recently started a blog talking about issues like tolerance and self-love and it would be amazing if you would check it out, it is called searchingforconfidence.wordpress.com! Lots of love and all the best wishes

  4. Agree. The Greeks understood that in order to care for others, we must first learn to care for ourselves. This form of self -love is not unhealthy vanity and self-obsession that is focused on personal fame, gain and fortune as is the case with narcissism. Instead, “Philautia” (self-love in Greek) is self-love in its healthiest form. You cannot share what you do not have. If you do not love yourself, you cannot love anyone else. I wrote an article on my website titled ” 8 flavours of love – Which one are you?” https://authorjoannereed.net/lets-talk-about-love-8-flavors-of-love/. Check it out!

  5. I’d drink to that! Self-love is one of the kindest things you can do for yourself and for others. 🥰

  6. Absolutely. How can we possibly have compassion for another if we have none for ourselves. If someone reading this should find it difficult to embrace their own heart with love, consider the small child you once were. Look on that child with the compassion you would look on any child. Send bounties of love to that wee one. Wrap her or him in a huge embrace of laughter and goodness.

  7. The art of loving yourself sounds easy,but I have come to realize it is not the easiest thing. It isn’t going to stop me though.:-)

  8. Reblogged this on Mysticalwriter and commented:
    Being Valentines Day is so close, one of things, to remember is some of us don’t have a Valentine to share this special day of love! So in turn for our self, is to give love to ourselves by going out & have a day pampering, giving ourselves a big hug or 2. Just reminding yourself that you are loved & wanted, 1st & foremost to yourself & by yourself.

    Thank for you sharing!

  9. Very well said! Happy Valentine’s Day. Here’s to more love and caring in the world!
