Self Love - Love You
Do you remember a time when you
truly loved yourself and nothing anyone else said mattered? You made
the rules, you did what you wanted, and you were loving life.
Did it matter what you looked like? Did you feel that others were
judging you? No, you did as you pleased and nothing slowed
We all have times like this in life, usually when we are younger (say a
kid) or significantly older (like over 50). So why is it that during
the middle of our lives we tend to worry, diet, listen to others,
compare our life to others, dress 'correctly', do the right thing, and
almost never, ever listen to ourself? Aren't we the most important
source of knowing what WE want and need? It seems crazy when it is
explained like this, for some reason, we seem to let everyone
outside of us run our life, and that includes the telly.
We can turn off the outside sources that confuse us and affect our
self-esteem. Simply don't watch the shows that make you feel bad; don't
the magazine that makes you feel less than or ugly. No - you
absolutely aren't. We really don't need much at all in life to be
maybe this is our lesson. We are constantly told that we must have
money to life and survive, but the more we want, the more we need, and
become more and more unhappy just worrying it will all disappear again.
Why? It is just the current human condition.
I think personally that Jesus had it right, and Buddha. Why are all the
enlightened ones so poor? Because they knew that money isn't happiness
. Stop trying
'fit in' to life and appear rich or important. Why not just have fun,
like a teen or old person who no longer cares. That's where the self
Okay, with all that being said, what are the exercises that can help
you to free up your energy and find zest in life? They are as follows:
Self Love Healing Exercises
1. Think Of All Your Wonderful
Think of all the things you like about yourself. You
have them although you may have forgotten them. There are qualities
about you and only you
so remember that. You are unique and special. Remind yourself and carry
that with you through the day. Who else could do all the things you do
the way you do them?
2. Do Not Be Tempted To Compare.
Keeping in mind how unique you are, why in the world would you want to
be like anyone else. Is their car more shiny, or they have a bigger pay
check? Well so what. Don't even worry if they have less lines or more
friends. What you have is exactly perfect for you. Do your own thing
and go your own way and don't look at what others have.
3. Be True To What You Feel.
Your feelings are wonderful monitors of what your Higher Self is
telling you, so don't ignore them ever. This is how we get so lost in
life, by listening to others and not ourself. Only WE know what is best
for us, and we need to learn to trust it. Do what you think is best for
you, and it will be.
4. Turn Off The Mental Criticisms.
We all have them and our mind does throw strange thoughts to us
sometimes. Maybe our weakness is our appearance, or its our career or
finances. Whatever it is, don't let that relentless voice keep telling
us we aren't good enough. Of course we are! We are perfect and
wonderful. The voice doing all of this is us, we control it. So stop
listening to the rubbish it comes up with and turn it to more positive
5. Think Of What You Have Done.
There is no point thinking about what you haven't or can't do, so focus
on what you have actually achieved, because it is more than you
know. Why not make a list of your accomplishments, including all the
times you helped friends, animals, and the environment. Have you put
stuff online that has entertained others, or helped an old person at a
supermarket. Don't be modest, you've done a lot, so make these things
6. Do What Makes You Happy.
things that you really love each week. Doing them alone or with others,
it doesn't really matter. Make an effort to have fun. You don't always
need to do every chore, so break loose and try this once a week.
7. Do New Things And Grow.
the way, don't just sit in a comfort zone all the time. Sometimes it is
nice to do this but, every now and then, do something completely
different. Do you want to try skydiving but are too afraid? Run a
marathon or join a dating site, whatever this new experience is, even
if it 'fails' so called, you will be glad you tried and will have a
funny story. Life is meant to be lived so break out every now and then
and go crazy, you will feel better.
8. Exercise Increases Self Love.
There has to be some form of exercise that you actually like. Don't do
the boring ones that don't stimulate you. Find a way to do the exact
right exercise for you and get your blood pumping. It is an amazing
feeling when we move our bodies and the endorphins make the whole rest
of the day much nicer. You'll feel great.
9. Get Rid Of Negative People.
Other negative types can bring us down and make it harder for us to
fly. Even spending an hour with one of these can make us feel flat and
unhappy. They can drain our energy by being negative, like a psychic
vampire, until we just want to go home and lay down. If someone else is
like this, just don't visit or talk to them and life will be so much
nicer. You are allowed to stand up for yourself.
10. Spend Time Alone And Pamper You.
are someone who never has a moment to themselves, this activity can
feel totally blissful. Take an hour in the bath, go for a long walk, or
do something just for you like a movie or sitting on the beach alone.
We all need some alone time to catch our breath and think. Try not to
be so busy or always around others and you will appreciate it.
I hope some or all of these tips can help you to feel more love for
yourself. Just remember, there is only one
you and we all tend to put
ourselves down at times. Make a habit of being nice, kind and
thoughtful to yourself and you will surely appreciate it!
