It means we trust, honor, and respect ourselves. As such, we end up with more to give. We become self-full vs. self-ish. Selfish means having a lack of consideration for others. Self-full means we take care of our ourselves such that the fullness of self spills out into more health, happiness, and wellbeing for ourselves and others.
Self-love is cultivated moment to moment over the course of a lifetime. Different phases of life present different challenges as we enter new seasons, however, we can cultivate and deepen self-love by learning to be more present with ourselves in each new phase with judgment-free awareness.
The following questions can be explored to deepen self-love: What do I appreciate about myself? What are my strengths and talents? In what ways do I care for myself and contribute to the lives of others? What goals have I set and followed through with? In what ways have I handled challenges well?
The more you explore, discover, and use your internal guidance system, rely on self-trust, and gift yourself understanding and forgiveness, the more you will elevate your self-concept, own your worth, and become your own champion of self-love.
