20 Tips on Self-Love

September 27, 2021

The more you love and advocate for yourself, the higher the chances of being surrounded by people that will love and support you back.

As a human being you tend to gravitate towards people who share the same values and beliefs as you because it feels more familiar and comfortable. So, if you believe you are worth a certain amount of love and respect, you may unconsciously and automatically seek out people who share that same opinion and will treat you exactly how you treat yourself.

This means those of you who struggle to view yourself as worthy of love and kindness may become surrounded by individuals who value you as little as you do.

It may sound strange why you'd remain friends with people who treat you so poorly, but their thoughts and actions would echo what you already think about yourself. So, while it would be upsetting to hear, it may not motivate you to dissolve the friendship or relationship, because you'd believe that they're simply being honest.

If this sounds like you and you don't want it to be, here are 20 quick tips on how to practise self-love.

  1. Say "no" more often
  2. Be prepared for setbacks
  3. Consider what your values are
  4. Make a list of your best qualities
  5. Set boundaries with others
  6. Celebrate your wins
  7. Spend time with people who treat you well
  8. Forgive yourself for your mistakes
  9. Challenge negative thoughts about yourself
  10. Make a list of your past successes
