Self-love is not only beneficial to someone you will love for a lifetime, but to your health and overall status. If you love yourself, then you are more likely to be involved, be willing to get out there, and be more acceptant of criticism.

I understand how it feels not loving who you are as a person, and I understand that wanting to please others may seem satisfying to you, but deep down, you’re actually hurting yourself. I was, and am, there. 

This past summer is when I began to love myself for who I am as a person, not for the view of others. You’ve probably heard the saying, “To love someone else, you must first love yourself” a million times and ignored it, but the saying is true. How can you love someone else, if you can’t love yourself? 

Yes, you may fall short on loving you, but that doesn’t mean that you’re bad at it. Heck, I even forget to love myself sometimes. I’m not perfect, and neither are you. When it comes to loving yourself, it isn’t always pampering you, but doing small things too. When you feel like giving up, try saying this: “I am beautiful in my skin, my mind, and my soul. My worth is way more than this and I will not stay down.” 

Another form of self-love is spending quality time doing the things that spark your interest. Loving every part of yourself inside and out, down to your hobbies and organizations you’re apart of. 

Self-love is learning to love who you are on your worst days as much as you do on your best days. You should feel comfortable in your own skin. 

Self-love is a key aspect in maintaining balance in your emotional, physical and mental outlooks, but it is not always romantic. It can be a mix of different things, like being positive, making goals, setting examples for yourself, learning to live by your morals that you create and many other countless acts towards oneself. 

Self-love isn’t tearing yourself down, but learning to build yourself and your empire up. Self-love is letting toxic, non-relatable things go including people who don’t have the same vision as you and always make you feel down about yourself.ou can’t see the effect of self-love unless youput effort into loving yourself. 

Self-love is you growing and flourishing to be a beautiful soul, mind, and body. Self-love is where you do soul searching, find out what your limits and abilities are, what you can offer to society, what your strengths and weaknesses are and many more things you will find out on your own when you practice self-love.
