How do you love yourself?:

It’s very interesting to me to see so many people wanting to find love this year. But I rarely hear anyone talk about loving yourself. That’s where I’m at right now in my life. How do I love myself? Where do I even begin? Loving others is so easy but to love yourself how do you even begin? I’m taking baby steps to work on myself and the changes that I want to see in myself. But where do I start with the love of me? This is a question that I must give some serious thought to. Any suggestions about how I even begin this task?

  1. That is the easiest thing to do, just focus on yourself, before you give to others anything, make sure you have enough for your self because you cannot give what you do not have. My thoughts.

  2. I think you’re on the right path as far as focusing on yourself. In situations where you give to people in anyway, maybe ask yourself “can i really do this, and will it inconvenience me?”. I think it’s also key to spend a lot of time by yourself not in sad feels but to get to know yourself and your true values and qualities.

  3. Loving yourself is deeper than many people think. Some believe it’s just doing whatever you want and taking care of yourself first but the Bible shows how complex love can be. There’s one scripture that comes to mind. When you get a chance read 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. It mentions specifically that love is patient and kind, is not jealous and does not brag. Being patient with ourselves and kind to ourselves sometimes means doing something we don’t feel like doing. For instance, if we know we need to lose weight or eat better. Are we patient with ourselves or are we trying to find a quick fix? Are we diligent in finding healthier foods or do we resort to fast food because it’s quick and convenient? Also, it may seem at first that forgiving someone that’s wronged us is not loving ourself but it actually is. “Love does not keep account of the injury.” If we’re striving to love ourselves, we must put forth the effort to forgive ourselves of past mistakes.

    I recommend reading those versus and taking time to meditate on how it can apply to you. Then write down a few ideas you can stick to.

    1. ❤❤❤❤❤ I love when you comment on my posts because it makes me look at things differently. And I love how you change my perspective about things. You make me see beyond myself and see what God has to say. Thank you so much for this. You have no idea how deep this is for me right now. I have my homework cut out for me. 😊

      1. Thank you! That’s the power of God’s word! Jehovah tells us to not rely on our own understanding but to trust in him in all things (Proverbs 3:5-7). I started doing this years ago and have only gained blessings. That’s why I always encourage others to do the same.

  4. For me, self-love is like a cozy sweatshirt that’s been my favourite for many years. It may have gotten to the point that there’s just as much holes as sweatshirt, but it’s still my comfy favourite.
