Fall in Love With Yourself
Love thy neighbor as thy self… but what if you can’t love yourself? Everyday we’re told that we’re not lovable, not good enough. It’s an odd by-product of the media poop storm that bombards us with images of perfect people selling perfect products. Now how on earth will you build loving relationships if you don’t feel the love toward yourself?
My grandma used to tell me not to hide my light under a bushel basket. Yes, I knew what a bushel basket was—we picked apples in the fall and put them in such a basket to make lots of pies and applesauce. But I hadn’t a clue what she meant by hide my light under one. Do you know?
She meant that sometimes we so lack self-confidence and self love that we make our finest points invisible. Your light is that part of you that sparkles and shines, setting you apart from others, making you a unique jewel that is you. Without self-love, it’s hard to select or define those aspects of yourself. You stuff the sparkles away in the dark, under the basket.
OK, get ready to change the negative messages in your mind. When you begin a new relationship—say you met a hottie and want to get something going—you can’t fall in love if you can’t communicate. Shut off the critical voices, whether they’re old parenting messages, a nasty boss, or a stinker of an ex.
Once you’re comfortable replacing your overly critical voice, take inventory of yourself, including your personality, spiritual self, body and mind. Bring out the sparkly parts, and buff up a new glow on those items that you might want to change. But there are rules:
1. The only criticism aloud is constructive criticism that helps you meet your goals.
2. Mistakes are allowed. They aren’t blunders or massive mess-ups, they’re growth opportunities.
3. You are beautiful. Inside and out. If there’s something you’d like to do differently, enjoy the chance to gently change.
4. It’s better to give than to receive, so give yourself all the love you deserve.
5. Be kind to yourself. Speak to yourself only in the most loving tone.
6. Set aside time every day to pleasure yourself in whatever way you need.
If your light is hidden, it’s not easy for others to be drawn to you. So Grandma was right on—bring out that light, polish it up and be a beacon of love beginning with your first look in them mirror tomorrow morning.
