Self Love is Not Selfish! 3 Reasons Why Self Love is So Important For Life!

If I asked you to describe your best qualities, what would you say?  Would they be qualities that are upbeat, happy and full of confidence, or would they be sort of depressing, self-loathing, negative? How do you feel about yourself?  Can you honestly say that you love who you are?  Or are there things that you just clearly don’t like about yourself?

What I am about to tell you is a pretty simple concept, but sometimes we need to hear it from time to time, to kick us into the gear of positivity and drive us towards what’s really important, how you think about yourself.  We all know what negativity can do to a person; it can attract more negativity into someone’s life.  If you’re in this situation that you’re not treating yourself the best way possible, you can only imagine how it’s affecting other areas of your life.

Whatever you need to do, however it needs to happen, let me make one thing clear.  Before you can be really happy and successful in all areas of your life, you must love yourself!  If you want respect and want people to treat you with integrity, you MUST respect yourself and treat yourself the absolute best way possible!!

3 Reasons Why Self Love is So Important in Life!

  1. Positivity attracts Positivity! When you love who you are, all that you are about, everything else in life seems to fall a little more nicely in place!
  2. When you treat yourself with respect & integrity, it shows the world that you DESERVE only the best in life!
  3. When you love who you are, you are happy! And when you’re happy, guess what? You’re a much better partner, parent, friend, etc.

So if you haven’t been treating yourself in the best possible way, isn’t it time to start doing so? I not only think so, I know so!  It’s your time to shine and it all starts within your beautiful self. Watch the amazing things that will happen.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic!

    Couldn’t agree more. The more positive you are, the better your environment becomes. We all have our insecurities, but the less you love yourself, the less others will too.

    You know…I have always believed that if you do not love and respect yourself, you cannot love or respect anything or anyone else. I hope everyone really thinks about all this and chooses to bring positivity into their lives so they can love and respect themselves… It doesn’t happen over night … but we’re worth whatever amount of time it takes!
