3 things you should know about self-love
Self-love is defined by the English dictionary as the love for oneself. It is necessary for you to love yourself in order to be a better version of yourself. Loving yourself makes you know what is best for you, and why you should go after them.
Below are 3 things you should know about self-love:
1 It is not selfishness: When some people hear self-love all they think about is selfishness which is wrong, and it is not what self-love entails.
Loving yourself doesn’t mean selfishness. it is simply choosing yourself and placing yourself as priority when making decisions; it is refusing to let anyone tamper with your peace of mind or letting external situations determine your joy.
This doesn’t mean that you won’t people first sometimes. There are times you place your family, spouse, or friends first. But, it cannot be at your own detriment. You must be selective about relegating yourself to the back and trying so hard to please people.
2 It is knowing when to say no: Even the most confident people struggle with saying no. they find it hard to stop accepting more work, chores, or taking up people’s tasks especially when they are drained.
I personally struggle with saying no too, but I’m all for the process of learning to say no comfortably, especially when something doesn’t sit well with me.
It is important you know when to decline taking up those tasks when you’re drained. I’m not saying you should do that in a rude manner, I’m not also saying you should always decline offering help to people. But, know your limit. While saying no be polite in turning down errands, and the person you turned down won’t even feel bad.
3 It is prioritizing: When you love yourself you’ll learn how to prioritize so that you won’t end up always tired or choked with so much things to do, and realizing you what you have been so busy with doesn’t add value to your life.
Love yourself enough to the extent of setting tasks daily, and achieving them. Have goals for your life, and work towards them. Don’t just exist without trying to grow through your journey in life, and to discover your purpose.
Make a decision to love yourself daily Conquerors 💪
