Hello readers, this article is for you. How to love yourself is a topic we have always returned back to because it’s always relevant.
Personally, I have always belittled myself. When I don’t achieve my goals I always say “I can’t” “I am not capable” “I am not smart enough” and this thing has been with me throughout my 25 years of life. I doubted myself and I still do. While teaching you self-love I teach myself the same. Because I am the one for me! So you should be the one for you.
You know, girls usually are looking for their soulmate in people with empty promises and souls? Why so? Because they do not realize their soulmate is them, their own self. Yes, that’s true, because we are always looking for things we cannot find in ourselves, and we are the worst critic of ourselves. We do not embrace our qualities and search them in others. But there are no soulmates in other people, there are just people, whom we learn how to love and how to live with them.

How to love yourself: The last lesson of the day
Focus on loving but not only yourself
Self-love is often considered egoistic from the ones who do not know the foundations of Self-Love. Self-love is not egoistic or narcissistic. Remember, do not think I love myself why should I care for others. Yes, narcissistic and egoistic people are focused on themselves and they do not care what others feel, they do not care that their actions might hurt others. But when you express love, and affection towards others it will reflect on you back internally. It will become a reflection of how you treat yourself. People who treat other people bad, do not love themselves!
