What is it even really??
Regard for one's own well-being and happiness. Is the dictionary meaning that google gives you.
But how many of us practice it with ourselves??
As women, mothers and everything we are, we tend to always put ourselves last on any little list, we conversate with our friends about things we wish to change within ourselves to fit in with the way society wants us to be, we even tell ourselves that we are not enough.
We aspire to be something that even when we reach those goal we have set for ourselves it is not enough because society tells us that we need more.
Today's society wants us all to be skinny with an hourglass figure and more than 50% of us do not have that and we belittle ourselves for not.
We are also told that if we love ourselves we our up-ourselves, that we think we are better than everyone else, that we shouldn't love ourselves because of ect.
Personally I think self love is really important it makes you who you are, it helps you stand tall in all those situations you would want to dig a hole in, it makes you and those around you happy.
With self love we teach our children to appreciate and love themselves, to love their little quirks and accept that they are not the same as their friends and that being different is 100% okay.
With self love we teach them how they should treat themselves, how they should be treated by others and how they should treat others, by this imagine their generation how much more accepting they will be with each other for who they are.
With self love we can love so much more.
but first we need to show ourselves self love, we need to appreciate what we have, what we do and forget what we do not have.
I am not here to tell you to go to your mirror and tell yourself that you are wonderful woman ect.
I'm here to tell you that by feeding your body good wholesome foods, by drinking water and moving every single day is a form of self love because your body will thrive, by stopping the comparisons with others because you are the only person on this earth that is just like you, celebrating those achievements no matter how little they are, by learning to say no, letting go of past trauma/wounds, losing toxic relationships and learning to forgive yourself even if you do a few once a blue moon soon you'll get the hang of it and you'll be glowing with self love and acceptance.
