Fall In Love With Yourself

Don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first.

Still, at first it sounds ridiculous. We usually think of falling in love as a process specific to dating, but in reality, we fall in love in so many different ways and with so many different things. We fall in love with people, places, literature, art, and even states of mind. There is no wrong way to love, other than to not love at all. The problem becomes our own familiarity with ourselves. We often become so complacent that we see ourselves as being plain, and are unable to see what others see when they look at us.

Falling in love is something that many women (and men) dream about from a young age, and while there’s nothing wrong with loving love, it doesn’t make you selfish to want to spend some time on you. It’s important that we never get so wrapped up in loving each other that we forget to love ourselves first. Spend time with yourself. Learn to appreciate yourself the same way you would appreciate your loved ones. Learn to embrace your quirks, because they’re what make you you. Learn to see the beauty in your birthmarks. Learn to enjoy time spent with your own thoughts, rather than shying away from them.

Loving yourself can range from learning about your needs and how to meet them, to acknowledging your value and self worth, to embracing everything about yourself, the good and the bad. But none of it is bad, it just is.
