C: I told myself I would practice more ‘self care’ this year and in this month alone I’m realizing how its evolved into practicing self love. I’ve been reflecting a lot lately… on myself, on how I react to negativity and what kind of people I want in my life.
For me, self love is respecting yourself and being happy with who you are, flaws and all. We will always be our own worst critic, but I strongly believe that you can’t truly be happy without loving yourself.
It’s creating an environment of love, positivity and honesty for yourself. It’s putting your needs in front of others because you’re most important. Self love is realizing you aren’t perfect and that’s ok! As long as you’re happy with who you are, nothing else should matter. It’s standing up for yourself and not letting others bring you down. And you can’t bring yourself down with your own negativity.
