~ Love Yourself ~
Love Yourself. Seems such a foreign thought huh?
All through life you are taught to love family, friends and even “thy neighbor”, but not very often are we taught to love ourselves.
It takes a lot of dedication and self awareness to learn to love yourself, I mean after all you’re the only one who knows you completely. The good the bad, the happy the sad, the ups and downs and everything in between.
Only you know your true inner struggles and personal achievements. Unless you share your deepest darkest thoughts, only you know who you are.
Can you love that person.. The one you don’t show to other people?
If the answer is yes, then great you are on your way to accepting yourself as you are and loving yourself is easier, but if you had a hard time saying yes to that question, then it’s time you learn to love yourself, or change yourself into someone you can love.
The choice is yours.
It can takes years to learn to love yourself or even accept yourself, but until you do, it’s harder to completely love someone else.
Loving yourself is about self acceptance, not acceptance from others. Share you positive qualities, own your negative ones. Learn to grow in your strengths and dissolve your weaknesses.
In the end, we only answer to ourselves.. So Love Yourself!

I think everyone has to go through this at some point and at some level.
I have bookmarked this page as I am looking at getting involved with blogging at giveaway hops later in the year. I first have to tend to hip surgery, so later in the year here.
This was a great prompt. We all need a little reminder now and again.
Truer words were never spoken. It is very hard to love someone else if you don’t truly love or accept yourself. A life goal for some of us.
I think its part of the journey we all take. We experiment, we fall down and we decide who we want to be. When you stop trying to be what others expect, I think that’s when you start to love yourself.
It is hard to remember to love ourselves as much as we love others on occasion. Good article.
Loved this post. It is definitely a lot easier to love others than it is to love ourselves for some reason! Visiting from #BehindTheBlogger
I think you have to accept who you are currently before you can truly recognize your value, move forward and change.
Sounds great keep up the good work
