How to Start Loving Yourself?

It's all about how we feel, how we want to accept ourselves and how to overcome the mess we are in. One is sure. We all want to heal.

Who do you love?

The last couple of years I was lost. I did not know who I was or what is the purpose of me doing what I do, what others were gaining from my work and from my existence, most importantly who was I to me.?
I remember being a kid satisfied by watching people walking on the streets and dream about things. I remembered how was that to love myself and how easy was to simply love others. I believe that people change when our childhood memories start to fade out, all those careless things begin to bother us so much, that sometimes we cannot sleep. I stopped daydreaming. I started thinking of what people would say, I was going blind as I shut myself.
I had one thing that left me fighting and that was awareness of the situation I was in. The voice that was telling me to wake up and speak from my book.
I realized that my value will not decrease based on someone’s inability to see my worth. That everything I do is worthy of moving on, worth of attention and love. I believe that we need to love ourselves if we want to love others.
We have to be true to ourselves to know who we are and what quality we have, to be aware of what we are capable of doing and what our goals are.
I have made many mistakes and had many failures and doubts myself, but still, I want to embrace and support who I am so my persona will be understood. I too, needed time to start loving myself, but I am glad that finally, I can say those three simple but yet so strong words: I love myself. Do you?

Thanks for your feedback, I'm glad you liked it, its all about self-awareness and self-confidence, and deciding what we want and what we really need in our lives, once we learn that it's much easier for us to live happier. Soon ill write more on this topic.

I really like this piece. Sometimes when I have a lack of self-love, I think of this lyric from one of my favorite songs: "I suggest we learn to love ourselves before it's made illegal". It's more dramatic but the intent of it really works when you think about it. But definitely an excellent piece!
