Reasons to love yourself….

Top ten reasons to love yourself…

1. It’s your longest relationship. You might as well enjoy it.

2. It makes it easier for others to love you. It offers others a fighting chance if you lead the way.

3. You really are “fearfully and wonderfully made” and if you take a closer look you’ll see you really are beautifully complex, vastly capable. What’s NOT to love?

4. It will help you see others more clearly, especially your children, parents, and siblings.

5. Your family traits will become clearer and you will want to embrace them, not fight them off or reject them.

6. Rejecting yourself takes so much work. it’s so draining. It naturally results in rejecting others, which is even more draining. Love rejuvenates.

7. It makes you nicer, easier to be with. It is so much more fun to be around a self-assured, self-aware person.

8. It makes you safe. Self-loathing people are short fused. Anything can set them off, especially when they are around acceptance and love.

9. It shifts how you see and treat everything and everyone. “Inner conditions” spill like oil leaks or spills. If you’re unkind to yourself, if you loathe or hate yourself, others tend to keep their distance.

10. It’s a prerequisite for loving anyone and anything.
