8 Amazing Benefits Of Learning To Love Yourself
Do You Love yourself?
Some of us might think we are pretty tough.
But no matter how much the hardest among us deny this – we all have a desire to be loved.
Often, it’s a romantic love that we crave.
We are caught up in our loneliness and it’s normal to have a want for companionship.
But romance isn’t everyone’s struggle or want – it may be family we want, or a friend.
And for some of us it may be a combination of all of these.
Rejection and hurt can leave us feeling unfulfilled and disillusioned with how we expect relationships to play out.
When they don’t go as we want them to, we often blame ourselves and wonder where we went wrong…
But that’s not what it’s about.
This is where learning to love yourself comes in.
And that comes with some incredible benefits.
Here are 8 Benefits of Learning to Love Yourself
1 – You’ll Be Large & In Charge.
Instead of making bad choices because you’re being led by shame, guilt or fear – you will be empowered to make choices that truly make sense for who you are – meaning you will be living your authentic life.
You will no longer be caught up with people pleasing. Instead, you will live a life that brings you satisfaction.
Self-love means trying to honor yourself because you know your needs are just as important as others.
2 – You Will Set Boundaries & Stick To Them.
Once you have the hang of honoring your needs you start to feel more confident, which means you are more assertive.
Of course, this results in a more purposeful attitude, especially when it comes to dating.
But not only for dating… for all your relationships.
You start to see who is wasting your time and you’re strong enough to move forward without them.
More to the point, you are strong enough to set clear boundaries with people and stick to them.
3 – The Approval Seeking Will Stop.
When you truly love yourself, you stop worrying about what everyone else thinks about you – which means you’re a less defensive person and more confident about living a life that is authentic for you.
Why would you need acceptance from everyone else when you truly accept yourself?
4 – You Will Be A Conscious Decision Maker.
Loving yourself gives you the courage to cut things from your life that don’t truly bring you joy or provide you with ample space to grow.
It’s easy to make courageous decisions when you value yourself and actively make choices that are intended to honor you, rather than risk harming you.
5 – You Will Enjoy Alone Time.
A lot of people get caught up in keeping busy schedules simply because they’re terrified of feeling or being alone.
You surround yourself with people, throw yourself into work, and make decisions that help you avoid that loneliness.
Why would you do all of the things that you don’t love?
You could be filling that time with things that you actually enjoy doing – whether it’s meditation, swimming, writing or watching a movie.
It doesn’t need to feel scary to spend time alone, you should enjoy time with yourself.
My daughter, Stephanie, is an expert at this.
When her friends started flaking on her when they made plans, Steph decided she wasn’t going to wait around for when they were going to show up.
And now she actually enjoys going to restaurants and movies by herself.
Self-love brings more comfort when you’re spending time in your own company.
6 – You Will Create Your Own Happiness.
You don’t need to find happiness in relationships, whether they’re romantic or not.
The only love that you truly need to be happy is the love of yourself.
When you start taking responsibility for it and stop giving your power away to everyone else, you will naturally feel happier.
Directing your love from your center outward to the world, you find the secret that all humans search for.
Loving and serving other people gives you fulfillment and makes happiness possible.
You act out of love for yourself and others, and at this point you can accomplish anything you desire.
7 – You Will Become A Better Person.
Imagine for a moment how a person who believes that he or she is valuable acts.
They know that they have something unique and special to offer the world and that their own life has a meaningful purpose.
Surely that person is someone full of love and joy for life.
The kind words abound in their vocabulary, and they radiate enthusiasm and positive energy.
But they are also an assertive person who does not shut up or hide what they really feel to please others.
To love yourself definitively, helps you to be that better person.
This is another advantage of loving yourself more.
8 – You Will Radiate Confidence And Happiness. You Will Become A Magnet Of Good Experiences.
Happiness is a beautiful visible accessory, just like trust.
If you love yourself, you will reflect confidence and happiness.
It will be noticed on your face, in your body language and in the way you speak.
In this state, you will be vibrating at the highest level (the level of love) and you open the possibility of continuing to attract more healthy experiences, positive, reliable and happy people to your life.
Loving Yourself Can Be Learned
Fortunately, loving yourself is a skill that can be learned and mastered.
Self-Love is not magic. It’s an attitude and it takes practices.
The first step is realizing the truth about your importance…
You are the singular most important person in your world.
Everything in your life flows from your relationship to yourself.
Learn to treat yourself like someone worthy of love, respect, and compassion, and your life will flow more effortlessly, abundantly, and joyfully than you can imagine.
Self-Love Is Not Selfish
Self-love is about connecting to your innermost needs, celebrating the freedom of being you, and honoring who you truly are while dropping your destructive patterns.
Loving yourself is magical—it’s a divine relationship that will help you radically improve every single aspect of your life.
So go on, drop the guilt, and embrace having a deep, loving relationship with YOU.
