Self Love Principles
Self-love principles. Self-love is hard to explain. It’s a concept you either get or not.
You can feel it without logically understanding it.
“Do your thing and don’t care if they like it.”
― Tina Fey,
- Give yourself the same loving care, attention, and sound advice you give to others, using self-talk.
Keep self-talks positive, encouraging, and fact-based.
Not only will this help you to focus on the positive but it will also enable you to help others better.
- We tend to expect more from ourselves than we do from others.
Forgive yourself just as you forgive others who make mistakes.
Acknowledge, accept, and forgive.
“Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you. What’s important to me is not others’ opinions of me, but what’s important to me is my opinion of myself.”― C. JoyBell C.
- Let go of feelings, situations, and people that do not support your best interests. Ridding your life of these makes room for more positive, goal-supporting influences.
- Make self-care time a top priority.
You make time to meet others’ needs and wants.
Do the same for yourself.
Your needs and wants are just as important, maybe even more so.
If your needs go unmet, you can’t effectively help others.
- Practice little acts of self-love throughout the day.
Take extra time to care for yourself.
Congratulate yourself on a job done well.
Do things you enjoy.
These little gifts reinforce your self-worth, confidence, self-esteem, and more.
Self Love Principles:
“When a woman becomes her own best friend life is easier.”
― Diane Von Furstenberg
- Never confuse self-love with selfishness.
Showing respect for your wants and needs isn’t selfish.
When you don’t love and respect yourself, it’s difficult to give and accept those things from others.
Do everyone a favor.
Learn how to respect and love yourself.
- Love yourself the same way you love other people.
Make time for yourself.
Forgive your mistakes.
Respect your limitations.
Make your expectations realistic.
Work on goals.
- Beating yourself up never helps.
In fact, continuing to chastise yourself can lead to a bad habit of being overly critical of yourself and others.
Consider mistakes a learning opportunity. Practice and share the lessons you learn.
- Accept and love yourself, just as you are.
You are a work in progress.
Nobody, not even you, should expect perfection. Instead, work towards improvement.
- While the term, self-love, might seem like a no-brainer, many people don’t know how to accept, respect, and love themselves.
This is essential to maintaining peace, happiness, and a balanced life.
- When you begin to love yourself, you also start to feel worthy.
This comes across to others.
You may find that more people feel drawn to you.
Build healthy connections and relationships for a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.
- Be honest with yourself.
Denying a truth just because it’s not what you want is a form of self-disrespect. Show your self-respect by trusting that you will accept the facts with grace and make the best of things.
