What Does It Mean To Love Yourself?

Welcome to SimplicitCi

I wanted to personally talk to you about the thought of loving yourself.

Me personally, I feel like loving yourself consists of different things.

The first thing that’s associated with loving yourself is to accept yourself. You need to understand that there is certain things you might not like, and certain things that you can not change but you need to be willing to accept whatever it is in order to find peace within yourself. One thing that I have a hard time accepting is my stomach because I feel like my body would’ve been so much more fit (like it used to be)  but at the same time I love my stomach and how my body is because that’s what makes me, me. Life happens and things happened causing me to gain weight but hey, it is what it is!

The second thing that I associate with loving yourself is balance and forgiveness. As humans we make mistakes. Some might be worse than others but understand that there is a lesson behind everything that we go through. Never regret anything that you experience because there is something valuable to take away from everything in life! Without forgiveness you will lack balance.

The third thing that I associate with loving yourself is to understand that not everyone will love you. Some people are just not meant to be in your corner, and it’s perfectly okay! Some people will love you for everything you have but some nitpick simply due to your taste being different or you carrying yourself differently. Don’t let the people who DONT love you be the reason YOU don’t love you. Regardless of what anyone may say/think/do it is essential that you find it in yourself to stay true to yourself.

I may not be a size two or four anymore but I still love every part of myself.

So, with all of that being said and done.

  1. Make yourself the #1 priority.
  2. Stop criticizing yourself.
  3. Forgive yourself!

  1. Loving yourself is so important! And I agree that learning to forgive yourself is a huge part of this – we are all human and mistakes are in our nature. But so is forgiveness 🙂 the two go hand in hand!

  2. This is a very empowering post, especially for a person who is feeling a bit self concious about themselves. Your way of describing things is very soothing and to the point 🙂

  3. I really like the thought of loving yourself . Happiness comes with you ,from you. If you know how to love yourself you will surely know how to love others too. I usually take time to love and pamper myself everyday.

  4. Powerful and inspiring. I think people are scared to love themselves as they think it’s a bad trait but it’s not. If we don’t love ourselves then who will? Loving yourself doesn’t mean thinking you’re better, I think people struggle to understand the difference

    1. I believe that people struggle to understand the difference as well. Which is why I am more than willing to write about it.

  5. I agree 100%! It is extremely important to love and accept yourself unconditionally. I believe for us to fully accept the love from others we need to learn how to love ourselves first.😊

  6. It’s such an empowering post… Love that it’s short and hits the point perfectly…. Loving yourself is really important.. sometimes in our effort to please others we do ourselves more harm than good… It’s really necessary to stand up for who you are and what you believe..

  7. Absolutely Love This, In A World Full Of Criticizism & Hatered The Need Of Self Love Is Definitely Required, Through Pain And Hard Times Where A Person Feel Like They Might Wanna Give Up, Self Love Over Power It All.!! ❤️❤️
