You have to love yourself before you can truly allow another to love you
How strongly do you love yourself?
Do you love your mind, body and soul? Do you praise your body and the amazing things that it can do? Do you acknowledge your strengths and pursue new interests? Do you take care of your heart by making sure your needs are met?
What if I told you that it’s impossible to have a true, strong connection with another human being IF you aren’t loving yourself?
It’s true and it can hold you back from having a beautiful, glorious life.
There are 2 things that happen when you aren’t loving yourself fully:
- You are sending off a message to the world that you aren’t worthy of love.
- You are creating a blockage that makes it harder for you to feel the love from others.
If you aren’t loving yourself, it’s similar to setting up a force field around you. It’s like having a barrier, and it makes it harder to let others into your life.
You are worthy of love. You are worthy of everything you desire, and so much more. We come from love, and when we die, we will be surrounded by love. There is love inside of you, enough for yourself and everyone you encounter. Don’t be afraid to let it out.
When you love yourself, you’re sending a message to the world that you ARE worthy of love. This message is felt by everyone you encounter, whether they realize it or not.
Does this make everyone else love you? Surely not. There are people in this world that have hate (or another negative emotion) in their heart and it makes it hard to love others. Don’t focus on the negative people. Focus on the people that love you and give you love.
There are 2 things that happen when you love yourself:
- You open up your barrier, allowing more love into your life.
- You know and feel love, and that makes you realize the beauty of spreading love.
If you want a healthy, loving relationship with another human being, you must give yourself love. When you have love inside of you, it’s so much easier to send love to other people.
Who wouldn’t want to spread love?
And don’t worry. Love is an endless, never ending, expansive, beautiful feeling. You can’t run out of it, and you can’t destroy it. You will always have love to give, and there will always be love to give yourself, either from you or someone else.
I want you to give yourself a compliment today. Tell yourself that you’re gorgeous, or that you look amazing in your new outfit. Acknowledge how glorious you are, and you’ll start to feel it.
So go out there today, give yourself some love, and send some off to other people, either close to you, or strangers that you encounter.
