How to practice self love

What is practice self love?

It's focusing on being your own best friend, being your own motivator,
being your own best care taker, being your own rock, being your own support system.



 Why is it required?
Because if you keep searching outside your-self to be loved or feel loved,
you will ALWAYS be searching.
There are days, weeks, months or even years, you may not have someone in your life who "loves" you,
but you can  and should count on loving your-self.

Self-love doesn't happen by luck or the grace of God.
You have to create it.
Self love and self validation allows you to be happy from within and
not waiting or constantly searching for someone to love you.
That shit is exhausting.

I know it's much easier said than done. I've struggled with it all my life.

HOW TO practice self love


Love yourself how you'd WANT others to love you.
It's the easiest and the hardest thing to do but you have to start with loving yourself first,
in order to know how it is to be rightfully loved by another person.


Re-evaluate negative and stressful relationships
Some people act in 'toxic' ways and are not healthy to be around. Limit your time with them as much as possible. Explore your role in these relationships. Are you contributing to the negativity? Is your overall relationship with yourself toxic or positive? What can you do to make it more loving and enjoyable?  - Holistic MindBody Healing blog


Be aware of the different messages that you hear in your head and remember to turn up the volume on the messages that CONTRIBUTE to your positive self-esteem and to turn down the volume on any message that encourages you to think negatively about your worth or ability. - The Positive Way
