Borrowing Kermit the Frog’s line, “It’s not easy being who you really are.”
The journey to self-love takes courage. And commitment.
Why? Because stepping into your power and loving yourself probably goes against everything you have ever been taught. You may have been raised to put others’ needs before your own; that your happiness depends on the happiness of those you care about or else you’re selfish. Do you feel tremendous guilt if you even consider making a choice that won’t please others? Your Life Mission is to fearlessly be who you really are. Each time you aren’t, it’s an act of self-betrayal that brings feelings of worthless and sadness. It causes you to stop trusting and loving yourself. Ironically, it sets up resenting who you’re trying to please.
Recognizing your needs and honoring them is empowering, feels much better than compromising yourself. Then, your self-love quotient raises a notch. Or even two. At first, it takes conscious effort and may feel scary. However, by doing some inner delving, discovering and resolving root sources where your lack of self-love came from, those choices become as natural as breathing. By regaining awareness of those denied parts, you reconnect with and truly love yourself. (I can help with that)
Interestingly, when your self-love choices come from a purely deserving place, rather than from selfishness, ego or anger, what gets reflected back is respect.
Self-love is a journey, but frankly, you're worth it. It’s called inner peace.
