Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is to take a break, lie down on the floor, and just breathe. If play has taken a backseat to your very important, very stressful adult life, then you might need to check out this book on play , and re-prioritize some things. The highest leverage action step that I have taken to help myself accomplish this is to keep an ongoing self-recognition list.
- Fundamentals of Toxicologic Pathology.
- Field of Chaos;
An example could be an ongoing self-recognition list focused on your health goals, or your career building accomplishments. Whichever one seems less intimidating and more beneficial, go for that one. Just grab a journal and dedicate it towards this task, or start up a digital document on your phone or computer and start writing in it. Regardless of your introvert or extrovert status, everyone can benefit from some genuine alone time. Go to a movie by yourself. Take a lengthy walk in the morning.
Meditate in the evening for a few minutes. Whatever alone time activity appeals to you, make it happen. You might be amazed at what thoughts and revelations bubble up for you when you give yourself the time and space to simply listen to yourself. Maybe we feel bad about how we treated an ex. Or we feel like we were too short with a family member, from a place of frustration or tiredness. If any of these resonate with you, or if other past painful memories are popping up for you while reading this section, then some self-forgiveness work might do us some good in the realm of self-love.
You can journal it out, or you can meditate on your thoughts, or you can speak it out loud to yourself, or to the people that you feel that you wronged when appropriate. I forgive myself entirely. Not only is spending time around your favourite people good for you, but investing your love into others via acts of kindness and quality time spent together also, in a roundabout way, funnels love into your relationship with yourself.
Treating your favourite people with love and kindness makes you feel good in the same way that being intentional about how you spend your time tip 5 makes you feel good. Start with one, focus on incorporating it into your life, and when you feel like you have a solid handle on integrating that habit, then start the work of adding another.

16 Simple Ways to Love Yourself Again
Thank you so much for sharing those self-love strategies. Certainly gives me something new to consider. I think the exercise at the bottom of this post may help you: Thank you, as always. As usual your article spoke volumes to my heart. I keep taking notes, wish i could remember it all. And I love what the person BlackDiamond wrote, it made me feel competent about myself and that Father would always be there to help me no matter what. Thank you for this article , Marc! At present I am stuck in my ethnic community in Australia, and have been throughout my teenage years and youth.
So, this has had an enormous negative impact on my life in the past 20 years. I feel imprisoned, in a vicious cycle: I am being isolated like a leper, and yet they want me around, as a measuring stick, so that they feel better about their pathetic lives! Why is so hard to forgive myself for the guys I dated, who never took their time to know me? Discovering, clarifying, and living my truth is an inspirational practice that helps keep me focused on my gifts, talents, and potential. Living in the present is also important! I have to agree, I suffer with self doubt also.
I would have to say 8 is what I would have to work on the most. I feel everybody has things about themselves that they have to confront at some point but never do and stay stuck. Thanks for writing this!! Thank you for the book recommendations as well. These steps have really helped me but this sticks out the most. I often find myself comparing myself to others and wishing and wondering when will i do as good as them but in reality really who post on social networks the bad in life?!
Whats life without failures. You have to fail in order to succeed so when i fail i will appreciate the failure instead of bashing myself i wont compare my situation to nobody else we all have our own lives with different purposes my failure isnt yours and your success isnt mine. My theme for is self-love. Your article gives me a lot of ideas to work for this year. I love to do something every day that makes me happy and tip number one is very important, what we tell ourselves can make a huge difference to how we feel about ourselves.
Number 1 would be my biggest challenge. So I have decided to just aim for one thing that I can say I love about myself a day and see what grows from there. Number 15 is definitely one I think I should get tattooed somewhere very visible to remind myself. Amazingly enough, I feel like mosf of the others get a peek in every now and then, so I guess the next step is to make them more regular features in my daily life.
Thanks for a really timely article. Hi to all, I have been blessed with a life of abundance. I have made more money than is considered normal and in less than 2 years lost it all. My home, my family, my business. I know that I was identified with external items, my way of compensation.
Through the years the universe gave me opportunities to discover what is really true. These past two year have been the major kick I needed.
In doing a lot of soul searching I have come to understand that it was self love that was missing all the time. Only now that I have lost all the external trappings and see the real value in those around me do I get it. And it took only 57 years. Everything you say here Marc is spot on. Incredibly inspirational and in an easy language to understand.
I really needed to read this. I try to hard to be that perfect image and it has ruined me.
I am unique, everybody is. This is giving me a different view on life and that I should be happy with myself and not care about what others think about me. Go out of your way to be loving and kind to others too. People who love themselves come across as very caring, generous and kind to others too; they express their self-confidence through humility, forgiveness and inclusiveness. So seek to understand others before you attempt to judge.
And be thankful for rude, difficult people too — they serve as great reminders of how not to be. This point gives me a better understanding of the toxic people I have been around and how bad of a influence they were about how I wanted to live my life. They indeed serve as great reminders of how not to be. I so happy that I found this website. Thank you for doing what you guys do, I am a new reader and visitor to this website and it has helped me prepare for positive changes to my life.

Getting Back to Happy. You really have to look in the mirror and be kind. Because what we see in the mirror is often what we see in the world. Our disappointment in others often reflects our disappointment in ourselves. Our acceptance of others often reflects our acceptance of ourselves. Our ability to see potential in others often reflects our ability to see potential in ourselves. Our patience with others often reflects our patience with ourselves. Be one with what is.
Love Yourself Quotes ( quotes)
The most beautiful part of this journey is simply returning to the peaceful feeling of being. This peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be. Focus less on winning the approval of others. Your time on this planet is precious. Distance yourself from those who bring you down. When you give yourself to those who disrespect you, you lose. Your friends in life should motivate, inspire and respect you. Your circle should be well rounded and supportive. Quality over quantity, always.
Forgive your past self. Read The Miracle Morning. Start making the changes you know you need to make.
