I Love Myself

always love yourself 3,016 People

    Nothing keeps you safe like loving yourself.

    Putting yourself first. Your wants. Your desires. And there is where you become strong. From the will power of rejecting what you yearn simply because it's not what you deserve. There's nothing wrong with being solitary. At least you'll know where your heart and mind are. Away...

    I still have days where I dislike myself

    but I'm getting a lot better. Inside and out I have come to love myself and I'm no longer ashamed of who I am. I use to get bullied for being fat. I stand at 5'5 and weigh (the last time I checked) 220-250lbs. Hell yeah I'm fat but fat is only negative if you make it negative. I...

    If I love any one else I must first love me.

    Amazing how people say they love someone and abuse them. Misery loves company I have been told. I love me and I love being me. This enhances my love towards other for the simple fact I see my own qualities I have to offer in other people's life each day. Life is not hard...

    Granting Myself Unconditional Self-love, The Greatest Accomplishment Of My Life

    Many people seem to feel that self-love is a bad thing. That it's egotistical, narcissistic, selfish. From my perspective, that is ridiculous. Recognizing and embracing unconditional self-love is the single most important thing that any person can do, as a foundational building...

    I've recently went thru a break up.

    When she broke up with me, she told me that I needed to love myself for who I am. I needed to appreciate myself (other reasons as well). I didn't know where or how to do that. I asked her, my mom, sister, a priest, etc. Even when they would tell me, I didn't know how to start...
