The topic of self-love recently came up; and to be honest -- I don't know how to address it -- as it relates to "ME." I've always heard: "If you don't love yourself first; no one else will. How you treat yourself -- is how others will treat you." Well, ... This seems like a very harsh reality, if we don't treat ourselves well? ... Hmm.
I like how the concept and (the) idea was posed to me; so with that in mind - I will attempt to "self-love" in a positive and "changed" way.
For starters, the beauty that I see in others -- I will see in myself. The kindness and consideration that I extend to others -- I will extend to myself. The positive light & energy that I wish for others -- I will pray for myself as well.
Old "negative" self-talk, will be replaced with "new, positive self-talk."
I may be overweight now (old self talk), -- but in due time with proper diet and exercise; I can become fit and physically better (new self talk).
As I write these words, the concept of self-love is becoming much clearer.
It involves patience, nurturing, and accepting myself as I am, and who I want to become.
I am kind, loving & sensitive. Compassionate & born-again. We are all "God's Masterpiece."
Simply put (by Team Leader & Spark Member, "FINDYOURFIT") .... "Self-love is positive self-regard --IN ACTION!" : )
Peace and Blessings! ...
