Don’t be afraid to love yourself

“To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.”

— Robert Morley

Self-love is not something we should be afraid of. Developing a love for yourself naturally ripples outward and just a tiny bit of self-love can make others feel loved and want to be in your presences.

We can sometimes be afraid of loving ourselves because it doesn’t feel natural or were not used to the feeling so, we do it for a bit and then go back to our old ways!

Growing up, I never saw classes on self-love, and if I showed an inch of self-love, I would hear comments such as ‘oh, she’s full of herself, which then makes you not want to express that level of self-love to yourself! And you mold yourself into someone who your not because you don’t want to express anything that will make you not fit into the social norm.

But I’m here to tell you that self-love is cruel and shouldn’t be ignored.

Loving yourself shows self-confidence, self- worth and leaves you feeling good about yourself!

When you love yourself, you become a magnet to all the good the world has to offer you! You draw in like-minded people who respect you, value you, and love you for who you are. Your positive energy sends out a safe space for those who need of comfort.

So I encourage your right now, to look at yourself in the mirror and repeat the below affirmations and start giving yourself more love that you truly deserve.

I accept myself as I am right now

I love myself unconditionally

I embrace myself

I am enough

I am loved

I am learning to love myself each day
