So many people have told me that they feel like they have so much love to give. They’re caring and want nothing more than to spread that love to the world. However, those same people are much too hard on themselves. They’re self-conscious, self-critical, and self-loathing. Although they may have love to share, they’re not sharing it with themselves.
This is such a common downfall in people and it’s possible that you have it too. More than likely, you give everything you can to others and leave nothing for yourself. Now, it’s time that you change that and experience these 10 things that will happen when you stop giving all your love to others and start to love yourself.
1. You’ll Explore
The world is your oyster and you are going to go out and find the pearl. If there’s anything that you’ve ever wanted to see in the world, you’ll finally stop putting it off and find a way to get there. As well as travel, you’ll be more interested in exploring the world around you and searching for knowledge too.
2. You’ll Start to Understand What You Need and Want
When you don’t give yourself the love that you deserve, it’s can be far too easy to forget about your own needs. Up until now, you put all your effort into giving others what the wanted and forgot about yourself in the process. Self-love, however, will be the spark that begins a journey of focusing on you.
3. You’ll Appreciate the Little Things
There are so many beautiful things in this world, but they’re not always obvious. Although you used to only think about the bigger picture, that’s going to change. Instead, you’re going to focus on all the small things that make up that wonderful picture.
4. You’ll Strive to be Better
People are not meant to stagnate. We are meant to grow and evolve to become better people. Despite that, many people forget how important it is to improve themselves. When those people learn to love themselves, however, their eyes will be opened to the importance of self-betterment.
5. You’ll Learn More about Yourself
You may think that you know who you are, but do you really? There is so much that you have yet to uncover and love will begin that journey of self-discovery. As well as that, you will see who it is that you are becoming, and you will love that person too.
6. You’ll be Happy to be Single
Relationships are wonderful, but they’re not the be-all and end-all of everything. That’s something that you are going to learn now. Likewise, you are going to find out just how amazing being an independent, single person can be.
7. You’ll Live for Experiences
Although our society puts material possessions on a pedestal, they’re not the most important thing in the world. In fact, they feed into our self-loathing and distract us from what’s really important – living. Now, you will start to appreciate the value that experiences truly have.
8. You’ll Take Action
No more daydreaming or wishing upon a star that your life can change. When you love yourself enough, you’ll do anything to give yourself the life that you deserve. So, you’re going to start doing what you’ve always wanted to do instead of wishing that you could.
9. You’ll Take More Time for Self-Care
Few things are as simple and effective for improving our wellbeing than small acts of self-care. Despite that, when you don’t love yourself, you can feel like you aren’t deserving of those acts. The truth is that you are worthy, and you will begin to see that.
10. You’ll Find Time for Your Passions
So many people lose touch with the things they once loved simply because they “don’t have time.” However, everyone needs to be responsible for making the time to follow their passions. That’s something that you will now begin to do as you slowly start to realize your own self-worth.
You are worthy of your own love. Although you may not believe that just yet, you will soon. Gaining self-love is not something that happens overnight, it’s a journey that will take time and patience. Throughout that journey, you will slowly start to see positive differences in your own life that will make you far happier in the long run.
