Does self love determine your self image?

Does self love determine your self image?

The word “self love” goes around a lot these days. People think self love is getting a manicure, massage or a new sports car.

One the other hand I am amazed at the number of people I meet – men and women – who simply dismiss self-love as being selfish. They don’t have time. They have kids. They think it’s selfish. They don’t want to be judged. They’ll do it later.
Constant sacrifice for others may be the way you were taught that love is demonstrated. It’s not. Love for others starts with self-love. We can’t give away what we don’t see in ourselves.

Constant demands to be loved and validated by others may be the way you were taught love is demonstrated. It’s not. Love by demand is not self-love.

Far from it!

Self love is a reflection of the respect you have for yourself. And if you respect yourself, you start to think, act and behave in a certain way. You choose NOT to put rubbish in your body – because you love YOU.

That’s when you are not only respectful of yourself, rather you see others as an extension of yourself and extend the same level of love and compassion to others.

If your body is really a reflection of your mind…how differently would you see being overweight or obese?

Would you perhaps have a different perspective on what caused the problem in the first place?

Because self love is also about ensuring you put healthy nutritious food into your body, which forms the basis of healing.

“Love now. Love life. Love yourself. Love others”
