SELF LOVE: Being head over heels with yourself
More often confused with self
obsession and selfishness, self love is loving, understanding, respecting &
accepting your self. As opposed to self obsession where a person is self centered, pursues selfish motives,
ignores his/her negatives & does nothing to move towards growth or self
actualization, Self love is inviting mirrors of reality, accepting your flaws
and working to be a better person.
For a healthy, strong & successful
personality it is vital for us to practice self love. Ask your self one
question, what are the qualities in you that makes you love yourself. Make a
list; if at a point you find it difficult to answer reverse the question and
ask yourself, why should I not love myself? You love your self for the fact
that you are aware of your strengths & weakness, you accept them & you
are ready to improve, this realization puts you in state of contentment.
Self love comes from self actualization;
simply put you know where you are, where you want to be & the path that
will take you to your destination. Growth is what we strive for, my father once
righty said “our lives should not be like a pond which is stagnant; rather it
should be like a river, flowing continuously, growing continuously.
How often do we come across people who
use ‘I Know’ in a conversation? The question arises do they ‘really know’. The
other day I was speaking to a friend who was going through a rough patch, in every
sentence she said, she knew what the problem was. After a 1 hr discussion I
felt she was already very well aware of what the root cause of her problem was.
Lastly I confronted her saying “if you know, then do something, act on it &
resolve the matter”, to this she said ‘I know, but I cant help it’ Gah!!! She
knows everything. Growth only happens if you move ahead. If you do not step
forward; you will always be in the same place.
in which you can invite growth; be open to learning, make your own decisions,
assume responsibilities for your action, transcend your boundaries; come out of
your comfort zone, forgive yourself, practice empathy, be thankful; live a life
Self Love, if you understood it,
Congratulations!!! You started your journey of being Happy.
“When I was 5 years old, my mother
always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they
asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me
I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand
life.” John Lennon.
