4 Ways to Love Yourself More

 (collaborative post)

 If you ever struggle with a crisis of confidence, the main thing to bear in mind is that you are absolutely not alone. This is something that everyone goes through from time to time, and it is just one of the most natural parts of being human that we can ever experience. The fact is that it is always possible to get to a place where you are loving yourself more, even if it takes a long time to get there. In this post, we are going to look specifically at four of the things you can do to make this happen sooner for you.

Appreciate Your Life

First of all, it is often best to start with what’s around you instead of looking at yourself. If you can take a look around you and appreciate what you have, you are going to find that it is really a lot easier to feel good about yourself as well. You might often find yourself wishing that you had more of something or another, but in fact it is this feeling of lack which often leads to a lack of love for yourself. Start to appreciate your life a little more, and you will find that it really helps you to feel better about yourself.

Practice Self-Forgiveness

Everyone makes mistakes, and none of us acts at our absolute best at all times of the day, every day. If you are struggling with this, and you find yourself hanging on to many of your old feelings of guilt and shame, then this is almost certainly blocking you from feeling absolutely in love with yourself. It’s time to practice self-forgiveness. That doesn’t mean not taking responsibility for the things you may have done - it just means learning to forgive yourself and see yourself as a human being with flaws. Greater self-love will come from this.

Dress For You

The way we look is very often tied up with how we feel about ourselves, for good or bad. If you find that you are constantly trying to fit into a beauty norm that our culture has set, this is probably not doing you any favours at all. You should try to just dress for you instead, whether that means wearing plus size dresses that actually fit you or just changing up your style for one that you have always wanted to try. Either way, this is going to help you to love yourself all the more.

Be Healthy

Being healthy is actually one of the most basic and most powerful ways in which you can learn to love yourself more. If you can do this, you are going to find that you are much more likely to feel good about yourself. Just the simple act of exercising more, eating healthily and getting a good amount of sleep is very often going to make you feel so much better about yourself. In a way, this is the root of self-love, so it’s really something to think about.
