Love begins with loving the self. Stop the negative talk, the self put downs and look within your own heart to heal the old wounds of the past. Hold yourself with the utmost respect and admiration. Be kind to your heart, love who you are and others will start viewing you with the same perspective.
Love Begins Within!
You hold your heart in your hands. You are the one who decides how it will be cared for, loved and healed. Try to squeeze it too hard and force it down a road it may not want to go and it will become hurt. Allow it to beat freely and it will guide you to what you need.
Humans long for love and attention. But rarely do we give those emotions to ourselves first. But that’s exactly where we must start our journey. If you don’t like who you are, you’re the only one who can change it. If you don’t like what you see in the mirror, you’re the only one who can work to make it different.
Loving the self means accepting who and what you are. Being honest with yourself and working to change the things you don’t like and that aren’t healthy for you, physically, mentally and spiritually.
It isn’t about who is fat or who is too skinny. It isn’t about the perfect complexion, the biggest muscles, or prettiest hair. It’s about how you view yourself when you look in the mirror and what you say to yourself when you’re alone. It’s the negative things you say to yourself, or call yourself. How well you do or do not take a compliment when it’s given.
Hold yourself in respect and you will honor your physical being and try to keep it healthy (whatever that is for you). Hold yourself in respect and you will show compassion for your mind and the choices you’ve made throughout your life. Hold yourself in respect and you will empower the beauty of your soul to shine through your actions. Hold yourself in respect and you will be able to allow yourself to be loved, not only by yourself, but by those around you as well.
