“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” Siddhartha Gautama Buddha
What is the most important relationship that you have? You may think is the one with your boyfriend, parents, friends.
Let me tell you it is NOT.
The most important relationship you should have is the one with yourself.
Self love should be a priority, you must love yourself first before being able to send your love to the world. And how would the others be able to love you if you don’t release this love to yourself before anything?
Bold and brilliant
To love yourself is nothing but to accept the good parts and the bad parts, to accept your dark mood as well as the bright one, to accept yourself as you really are! To be able to receive as much as you are willing to give and to always do both!
The art of self-love will tell you to be kind to yourself, to treat everyone the way you would like to be treated and it will teach you every day what your boundaries are, as well as, what your values are and to be able to honour them each moment.
You are worth it! You are worth all the love, as long as you give it to you first.
And that should be given to your mind, to your spirit and your body. Never settle for less.
Say HELLO to the new you.
Recognize your strengths, write down things that the others admire you for, cut out all the negativity from your life, even if that includes cutting out “friends”, do more of what you love, put yourself first, but not in selfish way.
When you do that, when you start loving yourself, when you feel good in your own body, your own mind, the inner happiness you will achieve and the peace of mind, the confidence will not compare to anything else in the world, trust me.
