If you can’t love yourself, who can you love? While it’s noble to sacrifice yourself for others, you’re important too. When you make the effort to be kind to yourself, you’re in a better position to be kind to everyone else in your life. Let go of the idea that indulging yourself occasionally is selfish.
Give yourself the love you deserve with these strategies:
Learn a new skill. Have you always wanted to learn how to fly a plane, play the trumpet, build a deck, or design a website? Give yourself the gift of indulging that desire. Take the first step to learning that new skill. Today is just as good a day to get started as any other.
Ensure that you’re satisfying your own needs as you tend to the needs of others. Everyone is important, and that includes you, too. Give yourself the same priority you give to others in your life. Take the time to love yourself more.
