The Significance Of Developing Self Love

By Susan Cooper

There are many things that people work towards in their lives. This can include goals in the work place as well as in their personal lives. Many people like to lose weight or aim at developing personal relationships. A lot of individuals like to improve their lifestyles with materialism. However, many people don't realize the importance of developing self love.

Without self love, you will find that your relationships will suffer and it you will begin to replace many of the finer qualities in your characters that you feel you lack with materialism or greater achievements, focusing on the outward appearances. People sometimes focus on other people, without paying enough attention to themselves and this can be crippling.

You may love your husband or your wife. However, to avoid complications in your relationship the first thing you have to do is to love yourself. It does not come overnight. It will obviously depend on the person and what they have been through in life. For someone who has been emotionally abused, they will find that this can lead to a low sense of self esteem, and this will be more difficult to work through.

They may want to be slimmer or more extroverted. They may want to be more successful in the work place or have a perfect family. However, when you don't love yourself, you will suffer because you will not be confident and you often lack self esteem, which will lead to a lot of negativity in your life. Self love can sometimes lead to self hate in the worst case scenario.

Connect with your emotions by meditating and spending quiet time on your own. This will help you to feel more relaxed. You will feel a sense of peace come over you as you begin to find a quiet space to spend time in. This will allow you to eliminate much of your anxieties and stress levels which may be getting you down.

People begin to see that they are, indeed unique in terms of their personality and their character. It is important to take note that when you compare yourself to others, you will continue to become negative about life. You will want to achieve more like your colleague or be more extroverted like your friends. However, those people won't have certain qualities you have.

You also need to make sure that you are in the right circles. This will give you more encouragement. Being with people who are negative about their lives will bring you down further. If you are in a relationship which causes you to become depressed because you feel that your partner is not compassionate, encouraging or kind, it is time to move on.

Self care is also something to pay attention to. You will feel so much better when you pay attention to yourself and the way in which you make yourself feel. This can include relaxing in a spa. Some people feel better after a massage. Changing your look by having a new hair style or buying a new outfit can also work well. Exercise or meditation also works wonders.
