Don’t simply go through the motions and pretend. Saying the words means nothing, if you don’t honestly mean them. Look in the mirror and tell yourself “I love you”, then follow it up by hugging yourself. Mean what you say and allow yourself to let go of the negative talk and dislike. You are worth loving! So love yourself first.
How do you expect others to be in-love with you, when you don’t even love yourself? How you feel and see yourself from the inside gets reflected to the outside world. If you feel drab and ugly, others will think of you that way because this is the view you project. Everyone has something about themselves they don’t like. But that “appearance” is not who you are. You can change the appearance by changing the inside first.
Replace the negative talk with positive affirmations about yourself. You are beautiful, inside and out. Smile and be happy with who you are and that will be reflected to others. If you have a habit or characteristic about yourself that you don’t like, start changing it. Create a self-affirmation that replaces the negative with a positive.
For instance, if you complain about other people and how they’re always negative; are you not doing the same thing by making that statement? Tell yourself “I see the best in everyone and everything through the eyes of love and compassion”. Each time you start to say something negative, recite that affirmation. Over time, you will change your behavior and your view not only of others, but of yourself as well.
If you’re always frustrated or angry, tell yourself “I am at peace. I allow life to flow through me with compassion and love.”
If you always feel stressed out over the little things that happen in your day, tell yourself “I find calm within. I carry life with ease through the strength of love.”
Create your own affirmation and change the negative patterns in your life. The more you replace the negative, the more you’ll see your own beauty and allow others to see it too.
