Self Love: 5 Reasons Why You Need It In Your Life

Self love is a beautiful thing. Too many people are lacking this in their life, and it’s one of the reasons why we don’t see enough love overall in the world. When you’re not happy from within, you are going to project more negativity in your life. Which will also impact others, and can create/contribute to a horrible cycle.

Many may claim to love themselves, but in reality they may not understand what love is. Having self love isn’t about being willing to screw people over in order to look out for yourself. It isn’t about being arrogant and self centered. When you’re full of yourself, that isn’t love, it’s a toxic mentality that will hurt you in the long run.

Treat others how you would like to be treated, and then treat yourself the same way. Love breeds kindness, honesty, patience, respect, forgiveness and so on. These are things you should be able to give to yourself and others. There are many reasons why it’s important that you embrace more self love in your life. Here are five for you to consider:

1. Self Love Allows You To Be Honest With Yourself

With love comes honesty, and that is a great thing. In order for you to grow and achieve more in life, you have to be willing to be honest with yourself. It isn’t about beating yourself up for every mistake made, or every flaw you have. However, it is about being to acknowledge these things, and work on what is necessary to create better in your life.

When you truly embrace self love, remaining in denial is not an option. Because doing so will only hold you back from making progress. Also the ability to be honest with yourself about how you feel, will allow you to address and resolve any lingering issues. It may not always be an easy process, but it is an extremely beneficial one.

2. It Builds Confidence

Confidence is one of the keys to success in life. No matter what we’re talking about, being confident can give you a great boost. Loving yourself breeds more confidence. You will feel more comfortable in your skin, and you can gain a much better grasp of who you truly are.

This will help you with not being as bothered with what others think. To many people can thrown off track, and aren’t truly being themselves because they lack self love in their life. So with it, this all becomes less of an issue, and you can move forward in a more positive direction.

3. Self Love Protects You From Toxic Relationships

When you truly love yourself, you learn how to embrace your value. In knowing your value, you will not be so willing to take less than you deserve. Entering into relationships with people you know deep inside are not best for you, will become much easier to avoid. Too many people are dealing with toxic relationships because they are lacking the self love they need to help them walk away.

Having self love doesn’t mean bad relationships will never come your way. It just means you will be much more likely to stop it in its tracks, and take the necessary steps to remove it from your life. You can’t leave it up to others to always do what is best for you. You have to be willing to do that yourself, and embrace that there are bigger and better things waiting for you on the other side.

4. You Can Attract Genuine Love From Others

How can you expect others to love you, if you can’t love yourself? Even if someone tries to love you, you will struggle to embrace it when you lack self love in your life. You may start to think you can’t find love, but the truth is you aren’t letting love in. To break free from this kind of negative cycle, you have to start from within.

With self love you become better equipped to give and receive love. More positive energy starts to flow through you, and this will attract more positive energy into your life. This invites more genuine love to come your way, because in this world you get what you give. Opening yourself up more to love will have a great impact on you, and it is something everyone needs to do.

5. Self Love Brings You Peace & Joy

More honesty, confidence, love, and improved relationships. This all adds up to you experiencing a greater life filled with more joy and peace. This kind of positive energy will help you fight off the drama and negativity that will try to come your way. You will focus less on the negative, and be able to enjoy the many blessings that are in your life.

Not to mention this will help you experience better health and less stress. You will find more energy to take better care of yourself overall, and create the “me time” that everyone could benefit more from. More positive energy means more positive results, and self love will help you with achieving that.

I think it is clear by now why self love is a great thing, and is so needed. I want you to live a much improved life, and I am confident that love is what will help you get there. If there are issues hindering you from taking that step, now is the time to address them. A great life filled with more blessings awaits you.

    I have been in a relationship for 7 years and we had some really bad time this year and anyway he movies out with a co-worker tahta happens to be single woman. He sadis he starting to get his thought together or something like that and is been 4 months since he left and wanted me to wait until he figure out what he wanted. Should I keep waiting or take it that he all ready moved on or he would be home with me working on our relationship?

    I really appreciate the role of self-love in maintaining a healthy life and relationships. Self love makes me understand the value of myself and helps me attract peace and happiness in life. But, not everyone knows how to love themselves (particularly the body) the right way. I just want to suggest my article to contribute for your topic: http://www.wikiyeah.com/how-to-love-your-body/. Hope you find interesting!

    Sister,
    Move on with your life.Sister thus happen to me. My husband been gone 6 months. I let it go and I turn it over to God and its great with peace of mind and stress free that he is gone. Gone removed him for a reason. If the negative out weighs positive move on and trust God and he will give you someone that loves him and knows how to love and treat you.

    Am sorry but He's already moved on as you had mentioned he could be at home working out the issues with you but instead opt to jump into a new relationship. I read somewhere that men move on right away then grief later rather than women who grief now then move on later.

    if the situation was reversed, would have done that to him? if no then it means he does not care about you as much as you do to him. You dont deserve to be treated as an option or a paln B. you deserve much better than that, its about time you start loving yourself waay better than you have been

    Wow, what a great message, this is so true. I have allowed so many toxic relationships in my life that I am now suffering the consequences.

    Very helpful and informative. I could not agree more. Sometimes we forget that everything starts internally and not externally. Thanks for the reminder Stephan.
