Learn To Love Yourself—for Your Own Good

Self-love is an inexhaustible source of energy that is independent of anyone and anything. When we love ourselves, the love and appreciation that comes from others is only a bonus, not the center of our lives. So, how do you do that? Here are some tips.

No One’s Perfect

Self-love is manifested in the acceptance of who we are, with our pros and cons, and is accompanied by a willingness to continue to grow and improve. This is the understanding that no one expects you to be perfect, so why should you demand it of yourself?

Accept Help

Learn to accept help from others—and even asking for help when needed. Remember, no one should do everything alone, and asking others does not indicate weakness.


Do something you love, without it being dependent on your daily duty. Learn to play a musical instrument or sew.

Healthy Body

There is no need to do things that we are uncomfortable with, but it is important to pay attention to our bodies. Think about what is important to you in your diet, exercise weekly, and give your body enough hours of sleep. Addressing the needs of your body means respecting yourself, and your commitment to self-respect plays an important part in developing self-love.
