11 Important Reasons to Love Yourself

Spirituality

One of the latest from Lotus Effect:

Contrary to popular ideas on selfishness, it is impossible to truly self-huglove another person, when we harbor negative thoughts/feelings toward ourselves. In fact, it is ludicrous to think we can take care of the needs of others, while depriving ourselves of the love we need to truly give. If the ultimate truth of the Universe is that we are all one, then it is unreasonable to think we can treat ourselves poorly without affecting those around us.

If the concept of self-love feels foreign to you, commit yourself to this question every time you are faced with a decision:

“What would someone who loves themselves do?”

Self-love is the root for which every good thing grows. The practice of learning to love yourself unconditionally is the most powerful healing energy in this Universe. Self-love sets your soul radically free.  By practicing self-love daily, you create a solid foundation which naturally allows you to embrace any experience that comes your way.

To love yourself means to consider your own needs. It’s healthy for those around you to learn your boundaries. When others realize they can’t have ALL of you, it helps them fosters proper responsibility for themselves.

Self-love is about accepting yourself as you are – both the positive and the negative. It’s about admitting where you’re at and not pretending to be anyone but who you truly are. When your sense of self-love feels depleted, a healthy dose of authenticity might be just what the doctor ordered.

If you’re looking for a good reason to love yourself, here are 11:

Self-love attracts love

Self-love contributes to better overall health

Self-love can deepen your spiritual practice

Self-love helps you see and appreciate the uniqueness of who you truly are

Self-love provides you with 24 hour access to someone (yourself) who has your best interest at heart

Self-love gives you the tools to make better life decisions

Self-love inspires more authentic love and compassion for others

Self-love improves your self-image

Self-love helps break debilitating people-pleaser habits

Self-love makes you look and feel younger

Self-love inspires you to give from an overflow, rather than depletion

Ask yourself, “what would someone who loves themselves do?” and watch how your life changes. If everyone truly loved themselves, the world would be a more abundant place.
