Three reasons on why you need to love yourself more:
1. Life is full of people who will want to put you down, because for a moment, it causes them to feel better about themselves. The next time someone does this, remind yourself that it’s not about you, it’s about them. You are worthy of love and respect, but only if you give it to yourself first.
2. A dear friend of mine Keith Raniere once asked me if I would punish a disabled child who was trying to feed himself, if he was not able to get the food from the spoon into his mouth. My answer was of course, no. He asked me to think of myself as that disabled child, doing my best to get by in every moment. I’m asking you to think of yourself in the same way.
3. Forgiving yourself gives you a tremendous release. When you realise that no amount of punishment from another person can make you feel any worse than do right now, you can feel free to just be. To let go. To understand that you are just you, and people’s opinions of you don’t really matter in the long run.
Be free. Don’t be judged and don’t judge yourself.
