Learning to love myself. – Dreamer
Nowadays everyone says that self-love is essential, you must love yourself, you should take care of yourself, to love someone else, first, you need to love yourself and so many stuff. You know when I first heard about the term self-love, I was entirely confused.
I was unable to understand if self-love or selfishness is the same or are they different. I used to read so many articles but still, I was confused. I searched on Google as well as YouTube too but I failed. The only thing I understood was that this is the only key to a happy life. So where to start? How to initiate? Who is gonna help me? When to start? Actually, I wasn’t even aware of the answer that do I love myself? Am I happy with myself?
There was a time in my life where I wasn’t broken but literally, I was not happy. The time was cruel and I was vicious too. But if today someone asks me that do you love yourself?
I’m sure that this smile is going to say everything to them.
Do i love myself completely?
YES! I love myself more than yesterday and tomorrow i will love myself more than today.You know I always wanted to love myself. I didn’t like who I was or who I had been because of all poor decisions and choices. I know we can’t choose our circumstances but we can choose our actions. Wrong choices always end up with lots of hate, complaints and unrealistic dramas. I was all aware of my faults, mistakes and situations occurred due to my uncertain decisions. Yes!! It happened to me but I continuously tried to find my ways of self-love. Once I was full of self complaint, guilt’s and humiliation but there was a day when I rehearsed a presentation on self-love, it was like an eye-opening presentation to my self. I felt what self-love actually means. I started finding myself with all possible efforts.
Now I understand that It is not the art of living a happy life but the art of living a healthy life. I agree that there is a need of faith when you choose to start loving yourself. It requires a lot of passion, time, understanding and acceptance because self-love is a never-ending process. A process where each day brings new hope and a new happiness. It seems like the more I’m learning, the more I’m getting close to myself. I’m still on my way of loving myself and I think I deserve love anyway, I deserve to be happy, I deserve to be myself.
Today I love everything about myself.
Even I forgive myself for all nasty decisions, for all fake acceptances, for all temporary relationships and for all dumb choices. I’m no longer forcing myself to keep everyone happy. I simply ask myself whether I’m comfortable or I just want to say “No”. I created my own boundaries that no one is allowed to cross. I spend qualitative time with myself and try to love my self softly, a little extra each day.
