Loving yourself.

"Love yourself, for if you don't, how can you expect anybody else to love you?" ~ Susan Lipsett

We need to love ourselves before loving others. If you wanna experience true intimacy, you need to be taught how to love yourself first.
As much as we want to control our own destiny, the humbling truth is that sometimes the only way to learn self-love is by being loved precisely in the places where we feel most unsure and most tender. When this happens, we feel free to love others in a deeper way. Positive self-talk cannot replicate this, it is a gift of intimacy and not of will power.
Self-esteem and self-love are issues that are often related together. If you suffer from low esteem, it is possible that the root cause is a case of insufficient self-love. And so you find it difficult, to find that little bit of love for yourself. I know, it will make you feel unnatural at the start cos your mind has been ingrained with self sabotaging thoughts for a long time.
When you don't love yourself, you're basically telling the others that you are unworthy or undeserving of any love or positive outcomes.
Learning to love yourself starts with making a conscious decision, an intention to become happy and lead a fulfilled life. When you don't love yourself and suffer from low self-esteem, it is almost impossible to reach the potential that you really have. 

Few things you can do to love yourself:

01. Eliminate self criticism.
02. Trust yourself or never lie to yourself.
03. Forgive yourself.
04. Learn to be kind.
05. Think positive.
06. Boost your self confidence.
07. Look after your body.
08. Express gratitude.
09. Have fun.
10. Relax
