How Do I Love Myself?

This is a question that is often asked when you are feeling insecure about yourself or when you see other people loving themselves and you cannot bring yourself to feel the same way. It is always challenging to love yourself, but the outcome of loving yourself is great.

Why? Well, let’s start with what love truly is. Love can be defined as an emotion to feel a connection with another person whether it is with a partner, your family or even your best friend. But what if you put this emotion into yourself to accept yourself as who you are? That is self-love. Self-love is also about appreciating and accepting yourself. Loving yourself gives you the chance to lift yourself higher and become stronger to conquer the outside world as you have to love yourself first before loving or caring for others.
