Learn to Love Yourself! ❤️☀️☮️🌸🌈🧘🏻‍♀️🕉🙏

All cliché sounds good to me and “love yourself first “ is one of them. People walk around and throw that advice to people clearly lost of themselves to begin with. It makes no sense to me.

First, you have to learn to love yourself and meditation will get you there. One has to begin NOT by loving oneself, because you don't even know who you are. Who are you going to love? If you start by loving yourself, you will love only your ego which is your false personality. Almost everyone loves his ego so much that he believes untruthful, shallow compliments from others. Meditation will help you learn to love yourself. If you meditate, slowly, you will get out of the ego and out of your personality. You will realize your real self, love will come on its own.

A man who loves himself and respects himself respects others too. He becomes aware that we are not different; as far as the fundamentals are concerned, we are one. The man who loves himself enjoys the love so much, becomes so blissful, that the love starts overflowing, it starts reaching others. It has to reach! If you live love, you have to share it. You cannot go on loving yourself forever because one thing will become absolutely clear to you: that if loving one person, yourself, is so tremendously ecstatic and beautiful, how much more ecstasy is waiting for you if you start sharing your love with many many people!

I used to not love me, I didn’t even like myself not even a little....well that’s what depression and anxiety told me anyways.

My human instinct all my life was for survival, getting through past traumas has you feel quite small and inadequate to those who are at the root of it all.

It’s taken me so many years to get to this point, I’m still a work in progress. I do love me now, I also share it with those closest to me, I’m able to practice gratitude where once I was stuck on a hamster wheel of despair.

Another great message, to those not there yet, give it time, you will.

Aweee RoxieDawn01, yes it is a journey to learn about ourselves first, it’s never an overnight process. Once we can love ourselves, we will have plenty of love to give others. Thank you for sharing your deep thoughts with me and everyone. 🌸🌷❤️🌈🙏xxx

Easy fix☝️We are gonna super glue to your hair 👌😂😂😂

😩😭😭😭😭

C’mon it’s a good plan 😂😂😂

No it’s not I object !!!

Sorry judge Judy is on vacation 😂😂😂

Ha ha ha haa

So we agreed on that 😂😂😂

I completely agree with you. You can't go straight from disliking yourself to loving yourself, I wish it was that easy.I think starting with something like respect is much better and learning to recognise qualities such as being strong a it's very hard living with mental health issues etc.

Not saying any more as your post isn't locked to this community and anything else would be too personal.

I completely agree with you on that and respect, dignity all those good qualities will make us love ourselves and love others right. 🌸🌈🙏

My love starts overflowing sometimes especially after ecstasy 😊....and lyrica with theanine 🤔

Now you’re overthinking. Those party favor is a plus. Why not? Whatever float your boat 😂😂😂

Thanks for the validation you’re so kind 😊

Start with low dose n then u can kick it up a notch. Better that way 😂😂😂

Woah 😧😖

Just kidding don’t screw your face up like that hiba....have a cake and a lemon 🧁🍋

Yes 🤣🤣❤️❤️

Ooh food fight 🤣🤣🤣

Squeeze the lemon on the cup cake ....grate some zest .....viola ...lemon cake 🤪

An excellent post KoKo. My yoga teacher says it quite often, love yourself. How many years had I spent telling myself I was thick and useless, I don't anymore.

You share such beautiful and meaningful posts, thank you.

Alicia 💜💜💜xxxxx🤗🤗

Awee thank you Alicia. I do miss my yoga class 😢 My teacher she always told us love yourself by practicing them more. You truly show love to yourself and everyone you know🥰. It’s been raining over here. Hope you had your morning power walk as usual❤️❤️❤️🌸🌈🙏xxx

Yes I do and I think it may be a while yet before it all starts again.

It's been beautiful here but no powerwalk as our eldest daughter who lives on her own came out and we played a game.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Alicia xxxx💜👍🌈🕉🧘‍♀️💜💜😍💘

Awee game day is great 😍. That sounds wonderful. I’m cooking up some lunch brunch/dinner now. Have a great rest of the day Alicia ❤️❤️❤️🌈🌸🧘🏻‍♀️🕉xxx

It certainly is, if weather isn't too bad I'm hoping to be out tomorrow.

Enjoy your lunch/brunch/dinner.

Enjoy your afternoon.

Evening time here now xxxxx🥰💜💜😍💘

Thank you Alicia, I hope you get to be out tomorrow as the weather gets better over there. One spoon for me, one spoon for Sonya 😂j/k. Have a great evening and sweet dreams when it’s bed time for you 🥰🥰🥰😇😇😇🙏xxx

Looks like I might as weather has changed a bit which is good. Or two spoons for you😉

Thank you. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Alicia xxxx💜💜💜💘🌈🌈🥰🥰

Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all. 🎵🎶🎵 I'm thinking of the Whitney Houston song!!!😇

Yes we are learning always 🤗 Love Whitney, powerful voice. Have a great evening Googoodollsfan 🌺🙏
