Learn How To Love Yourself
To learn how to love
yourself you must know that you can easily turn
things around to overcome these negative beliefs and
replace them with positive and empowering messages
instead. Below are some strategies can apply to start in
your journey to learning how to love yourself:
It is not difficult to learn how to love yourself as long as you do not have any limiting and
negative messages running through your subconscious mind. These messages that
you have going through your mind are messages that have been embedded there
since you were a little child. Your thinking is very much influenced by your
past, by the words your parents have spoken and by everything you have heard
from others as you were growing up.|
Every time you have heard something
negative like you being no good, not amounting to anything, or even being called
stupid or weird affects you until this day. The problem arises because somehow,
when you heard these negative thoughts, you believed them to be true even if you
did not want to.
1) Pay attention to yourself. Let's compare this to a
love affair. When you are in love with someone, you
devote a lot of time, attention and affection to the one
you love. Why not have a love affair with yourself?
Focus on YOU - and treat yourself like royalty. Do the
things that make you happy. Call yourself beautiful and
smart. Give yourself a hug. Treat yourself to your
favorite things. Spend some quality "you" time - you
2) Go back in time and explore your beliefs. You may
have some negative beliefs holding you back. The easiest
way to let these out is by allowing yourself to answer
some questions. How did you parents treat you? Has
anyone ever embarrassed you or belittled you in front of
others? How did your siblings and friends make you feel?
Did you ever feel less than others in school? You can
write your answers in a journal. The idea is to go back
in time and discover when and where these negative
thoughts started. Then, once you have narrowed down the
negative beliefs and when they started, figure out if
these beliefs are still true. Think hard - where they
ever true? Is there a way to turn these around into
positive ones? Replace the negative beliefs with
positive beliefs and continue to focus on being and
staying positive. Before you know it, there will be a
new and improved you.
3) Play up your good qualities. When your self-esteem is
low, you tend to focus on "what is wrong with you" and
tend to ignore the positives. Stop the negative talk and
replace it with positive self-talk. Praise and encourage
yourself when you accomplish something. It can be as
simple as saying "Wow, I am proud of myself for not
giving up and doing my best. I did a great job." Make
positive self-talk a daily habit. You can also start
reciting affirmations like "I am an important person. I
have lots of wisdom to share. I am beautiful, smart and
successful." The more often you recite your affirmation,
the easier it will be for you to believe it and start
loving yourself more!
