Falling more in love with yourself.

Falling more in love with yourself.

From the earliest ages we are shown and reminded in the importance of relationships.  Life and community move around our personal relationships.  Relationships with family, with friends, with school mates, with colleagues, with our significant others, with the community, with all those that move around us.  But what about the relationship with ourself?

Sometimes, the relationship that we hold with ourselves, moves to the lowest on the list, it's given little importance and can easily be moved aside.  Yet throughout our lives, this relationship, will prove to be the most important.

Falling more in love with yourself is not about vanity or selfishness; it’s about choosing a deep sense of self-respect, acceptance, and compassion. This journey can be so beautiful, although maybe not always easy.

As a concept self-love is the foundation of a healthy, balanced life. It’s the ability to appreciate, honour, and nurture yourself. It involves recognising and trusting in your worth, and treating yourself with the same kindness and respect that you would offer to others. Self-love is not static, it isn’t always still and it certainly isn’t a place that one day you reach, and stay; it evolves as you grow and change as a person. 

At its core, self-love means acknowledging your strengths and accepting your imperfections. It’s about understanding that you are enough, just as you are. It’s about celebrating your successes, forgiving and learning from your mistakes, and remaining resilient in the hardest moments.

Embracing self-love evokes a range of positive emotions. Confidence shines when you recognise your unique qualities, capabilities and magic that only you embody. This confidence isn’t arrogance; it’s a quiet assurance that you are capable and so so worthy.

All the while gratitude and self-love are beautifully entwined. By appreciating who you are and what you have, you cultivate a sense of contentment and joy.  A simple feeling of peace and stillness from within.

And then there is compassion.  The opportunity to be gentle with yourself during tough times. Instead of harsh self-criticism, you learn to create an environment of support and encouragement within. This self-compassion is as a soothing balm, and a large exhale.

Falling a little more in love with yourself is continuous, moving and evolving. It’s about embracing your true self, with all that you are; your strengths and vulnerabilities. As you deepen your self-love, you’ll find that your relationships improve, your resilience grows, and your overall happiness increases.

And on a final note, remember to be patient with yourself. Every step you take towards loving yourself more deeply is a step in the right direction, no matter how small. Embrace the journey with an open mind, with an open heart, and watch how everything shines a little brighter around you.  You deserve all the love in the world, and the most important love from within.
