What is self-love?

Often we are asked to love ourselves, but do we know what it is? Some people think that self-love means acting powerful and using their power and personal will in an aggressive way that denies the rights of others.  In a similar way, we can be aggressive with ourselves, one part of ourselves dominating and controlling the other parts.  Self-love comes from the heart and can be expressed as gentleness and unconditional love to oneself!!

Here are some qualities of self-love:

–          accepting yourself as you are right now. It is what composes your being, your uniqueness and purpose.  If you don’t, the inner war can be draining, and making yourself wrong is not a right use of energy.  Stop comparing yourself to others.

–          Stepping outside of guilt, which  means asserting yourself with compassion  If you do not play the same ball game as those around you, you may find they feel threatened.  They want you to act in certain ways to fit their pictures so they try to gain power over you through guilt.

–          Forgiveness.

–          Humility

–          Involves faith and trust and belief in who you are and a willingness to act upon your trust in yourself.

–          Receiving love is important too – it is not enough to just give and radiate love

–          Respecting yourself and living in highest purpose

–          Humour. The ability to laugh, to smile at others, and to put your problems into perspective is an evolved skill

I hope this gives you some clarity.  So share if this has helped and if not, let us know your feeling on this very important subject.

Thank you.
