Self-Love 🖤

What is self love ?

Google defines self love as ‘regard for one’s own well-being and happiness.’

To me self- love means loving yourself with all your imperfections.. Flaws and all. How about you, what does self-love mean to you?

If it was me alone I wouldn’t be doing this blog at all because of my shyness! But half of the things that I do, I do it through Christ who strengthens my confidence daily and my belief in myself.

Self-love is so important if you can’t love yourself how do you expect to know how to love others?

I’ve been on the other side, I never used to love myself, I never thought I was never good enough to be loved. I would look at myself and see ugly not just my outer body mostly my character and think I’m not worthy enough but I had love for other people. But the question I had to ask myself, how can I accept and love other people if I couldn’t even love myself?

I started to re-evaluated my life and wondered why was I placed in certain situations, I came to a realisation that certain things happened in my life for me to grow into the woman I am today and who I will be in the future. To love and appreciate how God created me. I did this by keeping my mindset positive and having faith even when things didn’t go to plan.

There were days where I felt so low, I always tried and encouraged my self and this was usually accomplished with words of affirmation. When I don’t feel myself, I look to my bible for wisdom and that is in the book of Proverbs. Let me tell you this book makes you wonder why are you even in a bad mood please ? Lol.. the book of Proverbs gives me so much wisdom, and with wisdom comes confidence. I still have a lot of work to do with my confidence, but I am definitely in a better place and for that I’m grateful. (Sometimes I can be so hard on myself) don’t be me! 🙂

Until you know how to love yourself and be confident in your own skin, you will forever be watching other people’s lives and how they also see you as a person. Take a step back and reflect, if it helps write them down in a journal for you to see it in writing and just smile through the good and bad, and remain thankful and strong.

Why don’t you try write three or more positive things about yourself and say it to out loud to keep your mind positive. And don’t forget to truly LOVE yourself ♥️

As you read this remember you are beautiful and loved. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

What being beautiful means to me:

Beautiful

Bold

Encouraged

Ambition

Unbreakable

Thrive

Irreplaceable

Fight

United

Love

Now come up with you own meanings that is personal to you.

Imperfection is the beauty of perfection 🖤

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

1 John 4:18 NIV
