“To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.”
In today’s world, if we carefully observe, we will find that most people feel insecure about almost everything associated with them. It can be how they look, their preferences, their education, their wealth and so on. To address this problem, every one of us needs to self-introspect the main reason for this problem. Are we too often comparing ourselves to others? Are we jealous of others, or feel inferior to others? If the answer is yes to any of the above questions, then it means that we don’t love ourselves; we don’t accept who we are. We need to understand that our only competition is us. We need to be better than what we were yesterday.
But the real question is ‘how to love yourself?’ The answer to this question is very simple first; we need to understand what we don’t like about ourselves. And once we identify this, we need to work on making it right. For example, most people want to lose weight because they want to look good in front of others and not because they want to improve their health or feel good about themselves. We need to understand that if we love ourselves, then others will automatically love us. We need to understand that we don’t have to change ourselves for anybody; if a person really loves us, he/she will accept us for who we are. If you don’t like something about yourself, irrespective of how others feel, change it rather than feel insecure about it and cribble over it.
Self-love also boosts your confidence and reduces social anxiety. One of the best ways to practice self-love is practising self-discipline. You will notice this quality in most of the successful people around you. If you keep yourself disciplined, then in the true sense, you are experiencing self-love. Because when we practise self-discipline, we are practically doing what is right for us, we are with us all the time and not tangled up in what others are feeling about us. We need to remember that whatever we do, we do it for ourselves and not to impress some other person in this way we will be fully immersed in our work.
Remember, you are just perfect as you are. If you want to change yourself, do it because you want to and not because of how others see you. Remember, there is only one person who will always remain with you and that is you, so it is very important to love yourself no matter what. The only person who is allowed to judge you is you and not anybody else. In the end, it’s your opinion that matters, and that is it.
Self-love is the greatest love anyone can experience and the most promising. #StopBreakingYourOwnHeart.
