Some people think that the concept of self-love is narcissistic. This is certainly not the case. When we talk about self-love, we are really just talking about having a positive sense of self or having good self-esteem.
Why is self-love so important?
Everyone is flawed, but everyone also is special and talented. Everyone has something unique to offer to the world. Self-love happens when you recognize whatever it is that makes you unique – whatever it is that you have to offer the world. When we have self-love, we experience confidence and pride in our accomplishments and our achievements. When you have self-love, you also believe that you are worthy of love from others.
Having self-love is essential when it comes to having healthy relationships. If you do not believe you are worthy of love from yourself, you will not attract loving partners because you won’t believe you are worthy of love from others.
Self-love can do so much for us. Self-love can determine what we think of ourselves and it can help us to project out onto the world what we expect from others. If you are in a space where you really love yourself, you will find it easier to love and forgive other people, and ironically, you will feel more connected to everyone else.
Why is a lack of self-love such an issue?
When you have no self-love, you will be much more accepting of people when they are not treating you the way that you deserve to be treated. You will be much more likely to accept abuse and not stand up for yourself if you don’t believe there is anything worth standing up for. Having a lack of self-love tells the rest of the world that they don’t have to treat you with love either. It also tells everyone that you are not worthy of being loved.
Self-love is one of the most important things you can have, especially when it comes to having healthy relationships. So the best thing you can do if you are looking to start a new relationship is to work on increasing your own self-love.
