11 Reasons to Fall in Love with Yourself
I recently wrote a post called 9 ways to fall in love with yourself, because loving yourself is step number one to a happy life. Now I want to address why you should take those steps to fall in love with yourself, and why they are so important!
Loving yourself completely is a magical thing! Because when you love yourself, there is nothing that can stop you. If you’re looking for the person who can change your life, look in the mirror. She’s right there, just waiting, and that journey starts with loving yourself.
Here are my 11 Reasons to Fall in Love with Yourself.
When you love yourself, you take care of yourself. This includes eating better, getting more exercise, drinking enough water, and our sleeping habits. There is a bigger motivation for wanting to take care of yourself to the best of your ability.
Think about how hard your body works everyday to keep you going and moving, and accomplishing all your dreams and goals. When you love yourself, you love your body in return for all of that hard work it does to keep you going.
When you love yourself, you set a higher standard for the people who love you in return. The tolerance for those who don’t value and respect you goes out the window. Those people will disappear and you’re left with the people who treat you the way you deserve to be treated. But that all starts with how much you love yourself.
Loving yourself is a huge confidence booster! There’s no reason to be insecure or ashamed of who you are when you love yourself. It is easier to feel beautiful and powerful because that’s exactly what you are when you love yourself, and it shows.
I think every woman needs a good confidence booster, and loving yourself is an amazing way to give yourself that!
When you love yourself it shows in a style that is you, and uniquely you. Because you have the confidence to rock your own style, and glow as you do.
When you love yourself, it is easier to not care what others think about your style. Rock that style because it is you!
Friends and Family
Loving yourself will change your relationships with your friends and family. Because you will be able to say no when necessary, and protect your time and energy because you value yourself.
Having self love will also make it easier to forgive the people who have hurt you as well. Because you realize holding a grudge hurts you far more than it hurts anyone else, and that negative energy is a waste of time.
Loving yourself just makes you happier, and every woman deserves to be happy! Yes, you deserve to be happy. Say it with me, as it is worth repeating. When you love yourself, you’re giving yourself the opportunity to live your best life.
Think about it, when you’re in a relationship, you want to do everything possible to make your partner happy, right? I’ve been married to Nathan since 2008, and I still want to make him happy every single day. Why not give myself that same thing?
Drive and Motivation
When you know what an amazing woman you are and love yourself, you’re more driven and motivated. Because you know you can accomplish anything and you bring a ton of value to the world, and to the people around you.
There’s no reason to settle for less than the best, because you know you’re capable of so much more, and you deserve the best.
I find I am so much more driven to be the best when I love myself. I want to be the best wife, homemaker, prepper, and just the best person to everyone around me.
Less Fucks Given
One of the best parts of loving yourself is that you’ll care far less about what anyone else thinks! Anything or anyone outside of your inner circle doesn’t matter when you’ve surrounded yourself with the right people and you love yourself.
I think this is my absolute favorite part about loving myself. I am happy and comfortable, and I don’t care what anyone else thinks. I know I’m in charge of my own happiness, and that’s exactly how I want it to be.
There is no one who is harder on you than you when you fail at something. You’ll beat yourself up long before anyone else even tries to say something. I am my own worst critic too, so I totally understand this one.
But when you love yourself, you tend to be a lot kinder to yourself, and forgive yourself quickly, then move on to become bigger and better the next day. It is easier to call setbacks a setback instead of a complete failure. You’re just nicer to yourself, and that actually goes a long way in terms of moving forward and still reaching your goals.
Less Insecurity & More Humility
Life isn’t a competition when you love yourself. Which means you can love others just as much. Instead of jealousy or envy, you give support and love to others.
It is easy to see that you’re unique in being you, and still celebrate that same quality in others by lifting them up through love and support. You know that the value you bring to the table can’t be copied or replicated.
When you love yourself, nothing and no one can stand in your way of anything. You are an amazing badass woman, and there is a freedom in knowing that! You are free to be yourself. Be fabulous, be fearless, be great, be you.
