“They” say – Love is in the eyes of the beholder. To me this means it doesn’t matter what you are like because if somebody loves you they will not notice your flaws or at the very least they will ignore them because they love you so much it won’t matter.
What about you? Can you look at yourself and see someone beautiful? Someone kind, loving, loveable, capable, strong, courageous?
It’s easier to love someone else and ignore their flaws than your own.
However, don’t despair, loving yourself is a skill that can be developed and it’s to your advantage to work at it.
When you live each day like the one before and don’t grow yourself you will most likely notice that you are unhappy or uneasy. Those uncomfortable feelings are a sign to you that it’s time to do some inner work.
How to start
Look at yourself and what you say and do with loving eyes – the way you would do if you were looking at someone else that you love. If you are able to do this, you will start to be less hard on yourself, be more forgiving towards yourself, get up after you fall down, not worry about others’ opinions, be more free.
May you have a week where you remember how amazing you really are.
