Self Love: The Path To True Love

Happy Love Month!

This month we are all about the love! Every week, we are going to discuss a different category of love. I want to kick it off with self-love. We need to start with some introspection to gain a deeper understanding of the love energy we send, and thereby, receive.

I want to start out this week’s tip with a question: are you looking for love? Maybe you’re looking for more satisfying love?

If so, let me share a truth I know for sure: Self Love Is The Path To True Love.

I want you to carve out some time over the next couple days to think about how much you love yourself and how you treat yourself. Pay attention when you talk about yourself both to others and internally. Are you positive or negative? Are you constantly putting yourself down or are you kind and gentle?

Who you draw into you life and how they treat you is influenced by how you treat and regard yourself. If you are your own worst critic or feel unworthy, you will inevitably draw people into your life who will agree with your self assessment. At the other end of the spectrum, if you treat yourself with respect, love, and high regard, others will to. People look to you to set the example of what you believe is acceptable behavior. Remember: you reap what you sow!

Along with being mindful of how you talk about yourself, I want to give you a 7-Day Self Love Challenge: every day do something super sweet for yourself. Treat yourself like you would a small child whom you adore.

I would love to hear if this tip resonates with you and what you unearthed in your self talk analysis. What are some of the nice things you will do for yourself this week?

I hope you have an amazing week filled with self-loving kindness!

Love Love Love

  3. I enjoyed reading this post yesterday. It really resonated with me. I received some great news last night and before I could start thinking “wow this is probably the only good thing that will happen to me for a long time” I thought of your post and instead decided to congratulate myself on the news because I deserved it, and I deserve more in the future. Thanks Terri!

  6. I think that not loving myself is the root of my broken relationships. I would like to work on this and start loving myself. I appreciate if you can introduce books to help with this.
