We all know that love is hard work and self-love even more, you have to work every day, even so you never get to say "I love me 100%", because like everything in life there are gray days and other colorful. Every day brings something different with it, we have to adapt, the good thing is that this process makes us stronger... Although it feels like a lost time we have to keep working our spirits, emotions and feelings, do not get tired remember that the most important project of your life... you are you. Today I bring you some tips that I will start to apply from today and I hope they will be useful to you too.
Forget about criticizing yourself
Insecurities are like exercising a muscle, if we work on them every day they get stronger and stronger, nobody is perfect in this life (unless it's Henry Cavill, just kidding) we all have flaws, but why remember those? Your mind will forget the good things you have and will make you think that you are not good enough.
Don't compare yourself with other women
We are all different, imagine if all women had the same tastes, personality, silhouette or ideologies. Everything would be so boring and monotonous. Enjoy who you are and what you are, when you start wishing you were like everyone else, little by little you will feel lost and frustrated. The best thing for your self-esteem and for you is to focus on knowing yourself and loving yourself like no one else.
Learn to accept your emotions
There is nothing wrong with accepting the things that are wrong with you, recognizing that something is wrong with you is the first step in getting to know yourself more and more, this not only improves your mood but also you begin to love yourself more. Take a few minutes every day, so you can meditate on everything that makes you feel bad and uncomfortable about yourself, so you can understand what things to change, learn and improve about you.
Be kind to yourself, as you are to others
Take a moment and do this exercise. Take a paper and pencil, start making a list of your virtues and your defects, this exercise is great to know if you are too hard on yourself and how you really see yourself. If it's easier for you to say bad things than good things, then your self-esteem is not at a high level and you will know where to start repairing it.
Become your biggest fan
You will not be an egocentric, if you learn to feel proud of your things, stop belittling every triumph or goal you achieve throughout the day, even a small one, when you start to feel happiness and pride for them, your motivation, confidence and self-esteem will increase like foam, you are responsible for you love you or not.
Start connecting with the real you
In these times, it is very easy to fall into the temptation to imitate and compare yourself with others, we are surrounded by so many social networks that it is not a difficult job to fall into those plans. When you give yourself the opportunity to know yourself as you really are, you begin to let your true essence flow freely and connect with it, so you get to know who you are and where you want to go, this is one of the first steps to recognize our own love.
Let go of your mistakes
The only reason mistakes exist is to learn from them. We all make mistakes and it is inevitable not to fall into them, the problem arises when we cling to them and make them identify us. Stop playing a drama that does not belong to you, learn to take the good out of every stumble you have and you will start to grow as a better person.
Take a break
I will tell you a great truth: you are not more productive by doing more things non-stop and living busy all the time. A truly productive person is one who manages to focus without much effort and knows that taking a break is not a sin, but rather something necessary. Don't demand too much of yourself, take the time to organize yourself and learn that no matter the size of the steps, the most important thing is constancy and discipline.
It is not easy to love each other, but remember we give what we have and if we cannot understand, accept and love each other, how will we do it with others?
