“Why do I love myself?”  I asked a few persons this question, some replies were hilarious, positive, some lived for people they love and others were not sure if they loved themselves.”

It is easy to ask someone if he or she loves you, it is also easy to ask “why do you love me?” because we are curious and we want to know our partner’s opinion about us.

It’s one of the driving forces of relationships. We want to feel loved and cared for by someone.

Which is a wonderful feeling but have you taken a step back from all the drama in the society and asked yourself this question “why do I love myself?”  I asked a few persons this question, some replies were hilarious, positive, some lived for people they love and others were not sure if they loved themselves. I could deduce this from the replies I got.

Self-love is a great factor in determining the quality of life we live as an individual, It is regarded as the instinct by which one’s actions are directed to the promotion of one’s own welfare or well-being.

Relationships experts all over the world have claimed you can only love someone when you love yourself.  You can show love to yourself by:

  1. First, make a list of positive qualities you think you have, you will be amazed at what you come up with.

  2.  Focus less on seeking the approval of people before you do things for yourself, you don’t have to do things because everyone is doing it or because someone said you should. Ask yourself these questions “do I like it? “Or do I want it?

  3. Relationships are essential in life, surround yourself with people that love and appreciate you genuinely. Keep friends who motivate, inspire and respect you. Stay away from people who disrespect your feelings because this can affect your confidence level and self-esteem. Also, accept corrections with an open heart.

  4. Forgive your past, no one is perfect we’ve all made mistakes in different areas of life. What makes us better individuals is taking a moment to forgive ourselves, learn a lesson and move on. When you linger in guilt you will not move forward in life and it affects your happiness.

  5. Appreciate where you are at this moment in life, you may not be where you want to be in life but you are not where you used to be. So stop complaining about your present status and be thankful. Keep striving and you will get there

  6. Believe in your abilities, be your greatest supporter. The key is to identify who you are and believe that you are worthy to have it.

Furthermore, you should take out time to give yourself a treat, go out and have fun. It’s not all about work and struggles of life.  Moreover, do not take life too seriously,try to loosen up don’t beat yourself if things do not go as planned sometimes you should loosen up and laugh it off.

People who have a great sense of humor regarding life issues often times do not end up with high blood pressure. Finally be kind to others, seek to understand them better. People will come and go, time will pass but a true love for yourself will bloom and aid you in loving another beautifully. Let’s see your thoughts in the comment box below.
