Three Ways To Be More Self-Loving With Yourself And Others, Pt. 2
Embracing self-love teaches others how to love and respect you and attract people who will value appreciate who you are. We teach people how to treat and value us by how we treat ourselves, lovingly or unlovingly.
Whenever you make changes, the people in your life are affected and they may not always appreciate the shifts they see in you and respond negatively.
And also remember that by being true to who you are and modeling the courage to be real and authentic gives the people in your life permission to do the same.
The greatest gift you can share with others is love and it first begins with loving yourself!
The question is, “Do you have the courage to love yourself enough to be who you are meant to be and do what you are here to do?”
One of the ways I love myself is committing to my spiritual practices daily. Creating sacred time to be in communion with the God of my understanding is one of my greatest passions that feeds my heart.
A second way I love myself enough is having the willingness and courage to do the deeper shadow healing that liberates me from my past and frees me to co-create the future I want.
