Day 8 – Are you updated with self-love insight?

08 Jun

He who appreciates self appreciates others; he who sees the beauties within recognizes the beauties in others. It takes one to see another.

Is self-love a new concept for you? Or you always know about it, but just not really doing it? You may love lots of others along the way, but neglect to love yourself? Or you always love yourself much more than loving others? In life, we will all come to a point where we find ourselves lost  in love and realize we have not really treat ourselves well, love ourselves adequately. This is the rising of self-love and the turning moment of life.

Self-love is important, as it is a part of the foundation to your love relationships. If you are adequately self-loved, first of all you don’t have to, unconsciously, actively seeking for others’ love and recognition; second, the love you share with others is based on self-love and is freely given, not expecting any exchange or return, you have no expectation. The receivers feel no pressure by your love and likely to do the same. And this is a healthy love relationship in my humble opinion.

There are many different understandings, interpretations, implications on the concept of self-love. We are all in the journey of loving ourselves more and reaching for a good balance between self-love and self-indulgence (or egoistic). It’s important that you find your own understanding of and given value to ‘self-love’, your ways to love yourself more every day and your balancing point between self-love and egoistic. It is all because you are what your self-love feeds and you have the ownership over it.

We live in a world full of easily accessible information and knowledge; benefit from them and fulfill you with self-love knowledge, experiences and wisdom shared by others, professionals and the wise. Keep yourself updated.

Today I love myself by: (read the below aloud 3 times and listen to what you read)

I continuously open myself to the idea of self-love; I keep on exploring, learning and practicing on self-love, as well as finding the balance between self-love and egoistic.

Today’s home work:

Explore the concept ‘self-love’ around from Internet or with friends; read what others, professional or the wise say about self-love. Find yourself a book related to self-love and enrich yourself with the knowledge on the topic.

Encouragement for myself:

(It’s your space…)

    Reblogged this on ~ Inspired Thought ~ Inspired Action ~ and commented:
    “He who appreciates self appreciates others; he who sees the beauties within recognizes the beauties in others. It takes one to see another.” <— I believe these wise words with all my heart.

    I wholeheartedly agree with – "If you are adequately self-loved, first of all you don’t have to, unconsciously, actively seeking for others’ love and recognition…"

    I am no longer depressed as a single woman or as envious of relationships I witness as a single woman as I was in the past because I now truly understand what it means to love myself. When I am alone, I now know how to enjoy my own company rather than go out and seek the company of a man that was never right for me in the first place; but he appeared as if we met at the right place and the right time because he fulfilled my desire not to be alone and because he fulfilled the desire to feel attractive and wanted.

    I love myself too much now to search desperately for love that I can only give myself until the right man crosses my path and add to the love I have for myself; not replace it.

    I truly am beautiful; I am a beautiful creation of my parents and I am proud of it and I now know that I do not need a man to affirm that but his compliments will be appreciated. I am a intelligent woman, my college degree says that and I do not need a man to affirm that but his compliments will be appreciated. And the list goes on.

    I am so happy to be single now; and I am more than happy to stay single for as long as I can because I love myself too much to put myself in emotional turmoil with the wrong man again. I will wait to cross paths with Mr. Right on God's Time.

      Thank you for your valuable sharing Hermelynda. There are so much self-love, self-respect, self-empowerment and self-appreciation in your comments. I like it and very much energized by it. (Only if you could see the smiles on my face now! :)) We have all gone quite a few to come to these realizations and I am grateful and happy to have someone sharing the same :) I appreciate your heart-felt words and sincere sharing here. I once heard something similar to what you have mentioned, “… until the right man crosses my path and add to the love I have for myself; not replace it.” We are not meant to expect others to bring us love and happiness, but we ourselves to fulfill. If we do find others who will bring us love and happiness, it’s the additional bonus in life! Thank you for being the bonus in my life right this moment with your comments!

    You warmed my heart saying “Thank you for being the bonus in my life right this moment….” You’ve humbled me to the brink of tears! <3 <3 <3

    I definitely agree it is indeed a bonus for others to come into our life and add more love and happiness that we already receive from family and friends. That is the love I seek and believe I will receive on God's Time. <3 <3 <3 No more desperate searching!

    I definitely went through 7 years of emotional turmoil; from in love to not in love anymore; back to in love and then months later not in love anymore; once is ok, but more than three times is too many! And that was all due to the fact that I did not understand what I am so grateful for understanding now. And I am even more grateful to read your words and see that I am not alone. <3 <3 <3

    Self-love, self-respect, self-empowerment, and self-appreciation has been a daily practice since my last relationship; which is still fresh behind me as of January this year! There are days where I would struggle and constantly remind myself that I am so much better without him and Mr. Right may be another week, another month, another year ahead so ~ stay patient. ~

    Your words have (re)empowered me to continue on my journey of self-development and I am so happy to say to you that you have helped me update my self-love insight. <3 <3 <3
