Positive Ways to Begin Your Self Love Journey

And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?” ~ Rumi

While we all know and agree that Self Love is the strongest force that can make us whole and healed, we still struggle with it daily. In the last article I shared Why You Are WORTHY of Love, no matter what! Lets take that a step further and understand the importance of self love and how we can heal through it.

A kind soul once asked me, “But I think self love is just too self indulgent and narcissistic! How can I think of myself when I have so many responsibilities towards my family and loved ones? Shouldn’t I be thinking of them first before my own needs?”

Why You Are WORTHY of Love

The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring. ~ Oscar Wilde

Let me begin by asking you a simple question:

Are You Loved? Truly and completely loved for who you truly are…by yourself and by those around you…

Many of my clients and people I meet feel like they Don’t deserve to be loved, as if they arent worthy of it, even if they are being loved. They believe they have so many flaws, that how could anyone possibly love them. Most of these insecurities come from past trauma, but they also boil down to one thing that is missing…Keep reading to find out.

Everyone deserves love! Love is a divine gift we each possess the spark of. In-fact, we ARE Love.

Everyone on Earth wants to experience and be loved, but with so many struggling relationships(now more due to the pandemic) and the enormous divorce rate, something is obviously missing.

Why are we still not getting what’s missing?

6 Ways to Stop Taking Things Personally

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

At the core, we are social beings. We tend to define ourselves by the relationships we nurture around us.

On a daily basis, we interact with a so many different people. Some are close and intimate, some are strangers. While all our interactions need to be mindful, the level of depth of the relationship directly affects the intensity of our interaction with that person.

Some people we get along with fabulously, while others not so much. Communicating and connecting with some people is harder than with others and this usually takes an emotional toll on us. THIS is where we start taking things personally, because our sensitivities to what these people say/do is heightened because of the friction that is already present in the relationship.

When we take things personally, we become sensitive to the words or actions of others or we interpret things in a negative way.

5 Beautiful Ways to Embrace Your True Self

“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” ~ John Jakes

Being yourself isnt a choice. Its a way of life. Period.

Being you is not always the easiest thing to be. Believe me I have had a hard time in the past just being me until I found out who I was.

Embracing your true self means to celebrate your individuality – learning to express yourself and be happy with who you are. For some it’s learning to love yourself, for others, it’s not hiding who you are or changing things about you to fit in. I fall in both those categories. And its amazing how everyday I learn something new about myself and strive to unleash it to the world…all because I am ready to do the inner work to be authentically ME.

3 Healing Ways Towards Self-Forgiveness

“Forgive yourself for what you think you’ve done or not done. At every moment, you had your reasons for all of your actions and decisions. You’ve always done the best that you could do. Forgive yourself.” ~ Doreen Virtue

Do you know that difficulties with self-forgiveness are linked with suicide attempts, eating disorders, and alcohol abuse, among other problems. The ability to forgive ourselves for our mistakes, no matter how big or small they may be, is a necessary step towards psychological healing.

I am not one of those people who plan their every move. I just can’t live that way. I prefer going with the flow or rather going with my heart. In doing so, sometimes I make mistakes. Sometimes big ones and sometimes small ones.
