“Self-love is the love of oneself.
In 1956 psychologist and social philosopher Erich Fromm proposed that loving oneself is different from being arrogant, conceited or egocentric. He proposed that loving oneself means caring about oneself, taking responsibility for oneself, respecting oneself, and knowing oneself (e.g. being realistic and honest about one’s strengths and weaknesses). He proposed, further, that in order to be able to truly love another person, a person needs first to love oneself in this way.”
“Live a life that shows how you feel about yourself and that you care about yourself. For instance, when you wake up early to do Yoga or Exercise, or to eat a healthy breakfast you are showing yourself that you are worth the effort. As you continue through the day, you will notice other habits falling into line with this simple action: feeling better about yourself, you eat better, and with a healthier diet you feel happier, and your actions follow by respecting your well being. Be conscious of the effect that improving self-esteem influences your life.
“NEARLY ALL PROBLEMS, STRUGGLES AND IMBALANCES SPRING FROM ONE SOURCE:
– insufficient self-love!
Try to transform your inner dialogue from judgmental to constructive and helpful. The love you have for yourself is what creates strong and healthy relationships. If you don’t love yourself you can’t fully love others!
This is why love is often contaminated with unconscious projections. The only way to take these projections away is to own them, understand them, and live your self-love. When you are able to accept and love yourself, you will act with love, with divine actions.
Remember: You are already perfect! You do not change, it is how you View Yourself that changes, then you act according to this perception. Self-Love is the foundation to transforming your life! Open your heart to yourself, celebrate your uniqueness by giving it life!”
