Loving you. Yes YOU, the person who stares directly at you as you look in the mirror!
We've heard this a million times before, that before you can love anyone else, you must learn to love yourself. It's true. Self love is one of the most important things to incorporate in your daily life.
It becomes beneficial for not only personal growth and development, but vital for relationships we form with others. We come better friends, lovers, employees, business partners, parents and overall great energy to be around.
For those of you who've mastered this, kudos to you! Keep doing what you've been doing. For others who find it difficult to love yourself, here are some tips. Go easy on yourself. Realize you're not perfect. You will make mistakes. Often times the pressure comes from trying to live up to other people's expectations. Just stop right there. Begin to realize you are wonderful and unique. God made you PERFECT in His eyes. Begin to understand you have a PURPOSE. Ask God to reveal what your purpose is and what's important. Give yourself some quiet time. Me time. Time to be quiet and be STILL. In the stillness of the moment you will see just how important you are to you.
Give yourself a hug. No really! Do it! Before you leave the house or begin to enter someone else's space, stare in the mirror and tell yourself, "I LOVE YOU".
Make it a great day!
