Self Love Sunday💖

Trying to win love from others is a losing battle, when you focus on self-love and self-compassion rather than trying to get others to build you up you become happier with yourself!

Loving yourself is hard especially if you suffer from mental health issues, we tend to believe the lies of anxiety and depression!

If you feel like loving yourself is too hard or cost tons of money, here a few things you can try right now that don’t cost you a dime and can be should be done immediately:

🔸 Say “NO” when you need to:
Boundaries are an essential form of self-care because they let others know that you deserve and expect respect.

🔸 Don’t COMPARE yourself to others:
Others aren’t better or worse, more or less than you, sis! They’re just different. You have value just as you are and accepting yourself means there’s no need for comparisons…period!

🔸 Be HONEST with yourself:
This one can be harder than it seems. Some of us as so good at self-deception that we don’t even know we’re doing it. Honesty is key in all relationships and your relationship with yourself is no different. (Ya’ll know how big I am on self-evaluation)

🔸 Practice GRATITUDE:
Gratitude is one of the simplest ways to focus on the good in yourself and in your life. Remember there is always something to be grateful for.

You are worthy of love…🧡

Take Care,
