To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.Robert Morley
What is self-love?
Self-love is not simply a state of feeling good. It is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological, and spiritual growth. Self-love is dynamic; it grows through actions that mature us. When we act in ways that expand self-love in ourselves, we begin to accept much better our weaknesses as well as our strengths, have less need to explain away our shortcomings, have compassion for ourselves as human beings struggling to find personal meaning, are more centered in our life purpose and values, and expect living fulfillment through our own efforts
What does self-love mean to you?
Just as self-care is unique to the individual, so is self-love and understanding what it means to you is an important step in practicing it. So what does it mean to you? Does it mean accepting yourself as you are in this very moment for everything that you are? Does it mean choosing yourself? Does it mean accepting your emotions for what they are? Does it mean accepting not only your strengths but also your weaknesses? Take some time this month to figure what you need to practice self-love and what it really means to you.
