“Self-Love is the greatest medicine” – Anonymous

You are loved by so many! But do you know who should also be loving you? It’s YOU! Self-Love should be an essential part of your life.

Practicing self-love can be hard sometimes, especially if we’re constantly on ourselves about the littlest things. 

This is something I’ve learned to implement daily. I was always so hard on myself for wanting to be perfect. And I was fearful of everything especially when it came to going after what I wanted. 

But it wasn’t until I started on my personal development journey, that I realized, that self-love plays an important role in one’s life. This is because, in order to love others or things you do, you should be able to love yourself.

Ever since learning that, I’ve made it almost essential to practice self-love almost every day. And it’s helped me break-through many barriers of fear and doubt that’s led me towards my dreams.

What is Self-Love?

Self-love is ”the state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth” as defined perfectly by Psychology Today.

It isn’t about being full of yourself, it’s about being in a state of gratitude for who you are. More so, It’s being your own happiness’ support system.

Why is self-love important?

It’s important because you deserve to feel good about who you are and enjoy your life. No matter what shape or form, your life is made to be embraced.

And if love for yourself isn’t there, then it can be replaced by some other negative emotion.

The practice itself doesn’t have to be a grand ordeal. Because in all actuality even the smallest of acts of self-love can make a huge difference.
