“Be the love you never received.”

Let’s be real for a second, how hard is it to practise this? There are so many people that are unhappy and are struggling with loving themselves.
What are some of the habits that you practise to show yourself real love?

Me: What I have identified about myself is that when things in my life get tough and situations surface, I always tend to be incredibly hard on myself causing me to be impatient with myself. I’d almost cringe when these things evoke negative emotions within me, putting my body through further stress. So what I do now to practise loving myself more is, I try my best to be more patient and understanding with myself. I’ve made myself realize that I cannot be so hard on myself all the time. I understand that I only want to grow in life, but being hard on myself won’t make me grow any faster. I’ve reached that point in my life where I now welcome any emotion and I embrace it, instead of shoving them away. Grow through it, no go through it. ✨

    Beautiful post, thanks for sharing. I believe the small things you do in terms of gyming, eating healty and looking after your health should be considered as self love. However people, including myself tend to lose love/respect for youself when others are disrespectful or he/she breaks up with you. Really sad and completely unnecessary. How others treat you is a reflection of how they feel about themselfs. You are awesome, never doubt that. 🐔

    1. Up to a certain extent, yes, how people treat you is a reflection of themselves, but it’s important that you ensure that you aren’t placing yourself in a position where you are playing victim to a situation instead of owning up to your contribution to the situation, because majority of the time, we all play a part in contributing to the fire.
      Practise your self-love by being truthful with yourself about your situation, take responsibility for any part that you may or may not have played, make amends and love yourself enough by forgiving yourself and others that are involved, and set your heart free. You do not deserve to be unhappy by making simple things complicated. You deserve to be happy and free.

      Thank you very much for your comment and compliment. It is much appreciated. I wish you all the best with your self-love journey.
