Looking for Love?
Why is it that we spend so much time and energy looking for Love, waiting to be Loved, hoping that Love will find us, yet it never comes? Because Love, which we all are ultimately seeking, is an inside job. The only way to find the Love you seek outside of yourself is to Love yourself first.
Loving yourself is more than just a feeling. To begin Loving yourself:
1. Educate yourself about you. Find out who you are as well as who you are not.
2. Accept who you are and who you are not. Love every square inch of your body including all perceived imperfections. Accept how you feel.
3. Stop all disapproval and criticisms of yourself. Stop telling yourself you're not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, and so on. Don't take things so personally. Learn to accept a compliment. Just simply say, "thank you."
4. Take the utmost care of yourself. Treat yourself without feeling guilty. Believe you are worth it. Say "no" sometimes. Tell yourself, "I Love you," and do it all the time. Smile.
