I’ve noticed something…
A lot of people walk around saying stuff like “You don’t have to like me, I LOVE me” and “You have to love yourself before you can love someone else.” You’ve heard stuff like this before, I’m sure.
Question though…do you know what it really means to love yourself? This is important. Here are 5 signs that you love yourself, no matter what.
You invest in yourself. I’m not talking about buying new clothes and shoes. This has nothing to do with new weaves or anything materialistic. What else are you spending on? Education, new experiences, a retirement plan- these things bring you the kind of security that no one can take away from you.
You say “No.” Sometimes you just don’t want to and that’s not a bad thing. It’s not a life requirement to agree to do everything people ask.
You spend time with yourself. Oh, how important this is! If you always need to be around people, you might have a co dependency issue. It’s okay to cook dinner for one.
You KNOW yourself. What do you like? What don’t you like? What’s your #1 pet peeve? If someone accidentally spills coffee on your jeans, what would your first reaction be?
You encourage yourself. “I hate my hair!” “I should’ve gone to college!” “I wish I had more friends, money, etc.” Don’t talk to yourself like this! Proverbs 18:21 says “The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.” (New Living Translation) So, speak LIFE to yourself. Be encouraging. Be patient and understanding while you strive to become better in this life. Isn’t that what you do for people that you love?
What are some ways that you shower yourself with love?
