Read disclosure HereI have heard so many people have been stressed and they talk about that they don’t love themselves because they don’t like the way that they look. In this new era there are so many with low self esteem because they don’t look like the ones on T.V or the person next to them. Let me tell you that we are all unique in our own way. What Ever! Yes very true we are all unique. God made us in his own image so we are all the same in a way. Let me continue with more. You look in the mirror and what do you see? You see a uniqueness but a difference from anyone else and that is great because you don’t look like no body else. You are made different, you think different and you act different so that makes you different and unique. Why Is It Important To Love Yourself Click To Tweet
Let me tell you a little story:
One day I was making a video when we were in locked down due to the covid and I asked my daughter to take the video for me. I think it was the make-up brush challenge The Estie Edition and I needed to look ugly or uncute in the beginning but I keep saying I look cute that is not a ugly video. We had done a few but they kept coming out me looking cute.
My daughter came out and said I wish I had the confidence that you have and I replied, what, You can have the same confidence that I have because you are gorgeous and I am not say that because I am your mom. I have confidence because I know who made me and make up does not define me.
It is not true that you have to love yourself first then to love others. Not true at all. But at this moment we are not talking about others. I’m talking to those that are in a deep selfesteem break down and those that are being tease in a way.
Stop comparing yourself to others. You are worth more than you think and beauty is within.
Loving yourself allows you to make healthier choices.
When you love yourself , you make choices that will only improve your quality of life. You eat better and sleep and exercise more because you realize that taking care of your mental and physical well-being are essential to your success. When you look better you feel better, and when you feel better, you do better.
There was a story I was watching on a video about a 15 year old girl a little big but it was not her fault she had a medical condition that she had some fluid around her brain or something. She was tap dancing since she was 12 and she was getting teased because of her weight but she was determined.
I seen how she moved so fluently it was out of this world. She jumped as high that she could just to take pictures. I mean she was extraordinary. With all, the teased and all she got a few scholarships.
Now even that she was being teased and bullied she loved herself and said that she is ok on how she looks but has faith in her self and loves herself. Like she said she does not care what they say because she knows she can do what ever she puts her mind to.
Now that was a example of loving your self.
Loving your self and loving others is a crucial part of life. You can’t treat others the opposite that you treat yourself. You need to focus.
