It's a difficult world we live in and it's always hard to spread love to others if we cannot even start with ourselves. These things take time and practice, but it's great to start as soon as you realize it. Here are five self-love habits you need to start today:
1. Allow yourself to make mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes, we are all just human. It's just that, some of us feel worse than others when making mistakes, and that's okay. Try to allow yourself to make mistakes and embrace the consequences and lessons you learn along the way. These mistakes make us who we are today, they make us stronger. Remember that nobody is perfect.
2. Stop comparing yourself to others. A lot of times, especially on social media, we tend to compare ourselves with the idea of others, and then we feel bad for not having everything they have or not having our life as "figured out" as they do. The truth is, nobody really has everything figured out, and we are all confused and worried and anxious and tired sometimes. Be grateful of what you have right now and enjoy your present. Everything will fall into place at the right time.
3. Never be afraid of letting go. Do not be afraid of letting toxic people go. Say goodbye to things that are not making you happy anymore. Life isn't about sticking to what is comfortable and what you're used to. It's about the lessons we learn along the way.
4.. Start eating right. Take care of yourself. Exercise if you can, and appreciate the little things you can and cannot do.
5. Always be positive. Being positive is difficult these days. We cannot stay positive all the time, especially when our minds always worry and are always anxious about what's happening around us. Learn to let all these bad vibes go, and change them with positivity. It's always better said than done, but practicing it everyday will make you good at it. Life is too short to get stuck worrying about the things that will not matter in the long run.
Love yourself enough to know that these things matter in order for you to be able to spread love and happiness wherever you go.
