The Importance Of Developing Self Love

By Susan Cooper

There are many things that people work towards in their lives. This can include goals in the work place as well as in their personal lives. Many people like to lose weight or aim at developing personal relationships. A lot of individuals like to improve their lifestyles with materialism. However, many people don't realize the importance of developing self love.

This is a very important aspect in life which needs constant work and effort. It is also a balance that needs attention. There are people who have too much of this secret ingredient, and this can lead to disastrous consequences. This can cause you to become arrogant, thinking highly of yourself. However, many people out there will not have enough compassion for themselves.

You may love your husband or your wife. However, to avoid complications in your relationship the first thing you have to do is to love yourself. It does not come overnight. It will obviously depend on the person and what they have been through in life. For someone who has been emotionally abused, they will find that this can lead to a low sense of self esteem, and this will be more difficult to work through.

They may want to be slimmer or more extroverted. They may want to be more successful in the work place or have a perfect family. However, when you don't love yourself, you will suffer because you will not be confident and you often lack self esteem, which will lead to a lot of negativity in your life. Self love can sometimes lead to self hate in the worst case scenario.

It is more difficult to be kind to yourself when you have been emotionally abused. This will be drilled into the brain from a young age. However, it is important to change these negative thought patterns. Often, this requires intense therapy. It can be a slow process, but one needs to be patient. Over time, clients begin to improve and this is obviously encouraging.

Encourage yourself through the bad days. Things like depression and anxiety can definitely get you down. You will find that you will find this can lead to a lot of negativity in your life. You may find that self talk can creep into your life. When you are with the right sort of people, you will also find that you will grow and become more encouraged and motivated to move in the right direction.

You also need to make sure that you are in the right circles. This will give you more encouragement. Being with people who are negative about their lives will bring you down further. If you are in a relationship which causes you to become depressed because you feel that your partner is not compassionate, encouraging or kind, it is time to move on.

Be grateful for what you have to show for yourself. This will include your personality, your personality and your uniqueness. These are the things that people will appreciate about you. When people pay you a compliment, don't brush it aside. Instead, cherish it, because this will encourage you. You will begin to value to yourself more.
