 Tips For Self-Love…

    1. It requires honesty for ‘right here’and ‘right now’… your choices… thought patterns… get rid of self-neglect… establish new ways to boost self-worth… accept yourself with or without flaws… brace uncertainty… work on ways to increase self-esteem…
    2. In order for someone to love you… you must feel worthy of being loved first… there is no place for self-doubt… how can everyone else think you awesome if you don’t think that way about yourself?
    3. Being the best person you can be does not mean that everyone will like the ‘confident, dignified’ person you become… you will never have the love, praise, approval, esteem of everyone you meet… and that should not define who you are… or what they think to be a reflection of your true self… Stop waiting for the approval of others… not everyone likes the same things… so why would everyone like you?
    4. If you live up to the expectation of others… you will never truly do what you love… and will be subject to the control of how others would want you to be… how is this being yourself?  Be brave enough to look in the mirror and forgive yourself… embrace yourself and develop self-assurance…
    5. Don’t compare yourself… to others or what social media says you should or should not be… you will constantly be caught in a downward spiral… you will never view yourself as the person you are… you have to realise you are enough without the judgement of people… otherwise it will always be in context to someone or something else… instead be sensitive and understanding to yourself…
    6. Think about how you want to be regarded by others… then hold that regard towards yourself first… evaluate yourself… understand yourself… support yourself… esteem yourself… learn to set healthy boundaries…
    7. Let go of anything… everything that holds you back from from being the amazing person God created you to be… appreciate yourself (in the same way you appreciate others)… Start now by writing a list of 100 ways to love yourself (grasping God’s unfailing, unconditional, everlasting love for you)!
