Because without this then everything else falls apart. Self-Love is the foundation that everything else is based on.
How do you start a relationship with someone else if you do not love yourself (enough)?
How do you apply and interview for a job or negotiate a salary, if you do not love yourself enough?
How do you set boundaries and not let others walk all over you in all areas of your life -- if you do not love yourself enough?
Basically, life is way harder when you cannot see your own self-worth.
It has taken me a long time to start valuing myself and setting a higher standard in my life. And I want to continue to work on it more and more.
How does one start loving and valuing oneself more?
APPRECIATING oneself is a great way to get started!
Take out your journal now, and write down 3 things that you appreciate about yourself right now or this week. You can start with small things. And later, try to build up to things that have nothing to do with what you do (action wise) but just about who you are.
I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Comment below - how was this journaling exercise? Hard, easy? Do you usually take time to appreciate yourself?
