It’s not always easy to love yourself. Especially when the world around you seems to be falling to shambles, and just turning on the news stresses you out. But showing love to our fellow friends is so easy, so why can’t we show ourselves that same support and respect? Rather than focusing on how you can improve yourself, why not explore all the ways that you can focus on the positives, like what a worthy and accomplished woman you are in this wild world? There’s no one else like you out there – here’s all the reasons ways we can celebrate that.
1. Stop comparing yourself to others. We get it – on social media, this can be especially hard. But once you start seeing other women as your allies instead of your competition, a whole new world opens up, and helps you be more satisfied with yourself. Remember that social media is just a curated feed.
2. Learn how to say no and set boundaries. Plenty of us have allowed ourselves to be doormats in life, whether it’s in friendships, romantic situations, or with our family. But learning to say no when you don’t want to do something it one of the most powerful feelings. When you stop stretching yourself so thin, you can really focus on yourself.
3. Make a list of all the things you love about yourself. Then, make a list of all the accomplishments you’ve achieved in your life so far. This is how your loved ones see you, and how you deserve to see yourself. At the end of the list, you’ll be impressed and falling head over heels for yourself.
4. Learn how to trust your instincts. Listening to your gut is your soul’s way of telling you what’s best for you. It’s always important to trust yourself and have an inner compass before listening to what anyone else has to say. This will stop you from being manipulated, and help increase your self-confidence.
