How many times have you heard that you should love yourself more? If you love yourself, you can love others, or at least that’s what they say. What do you think?
We also included some quotes about self-love in this article as an inspiration for you to love yourself more and to be mentally stronger.
So, if it seems so good to love yourself… why do we choose the opposite? Who would choose not to love ourselves? Today we will give you the answers to all your questions.
You have a thousand and one excuses to believe that you shouldn’t love yourself: you don’t deserve it, it’s not important, you’re always the problem, etc. These and many other excuses prevent you from loving yourself and prevent others from loving you. This makes you sink deeper and deeper into unhappiness.
You avoid risks.
At first glance, we may think that avoiding risks is a good thing, but quite the opposite! Avoiding the risks of having love or friendship relationships so as not to have to go through rejection, pain, is not worth it! It’s part of us to take risks, because… what if everything goes well? What if you are happy?
Break Out of Your Comfort Zone.
Stagnate, avoid progressing out of fear that everything will change. This is the fear of many people. Get out of your comfort zone! You feel safe, but you don’t move! We are destined to find something else, progress. If there is no progress in our life, it will have no meaning and… is it possible to live happily like this?
Feeling sorry for yourself.
Aside from choosing not to love yourself, you feel regret! This serves as an escapement route, but how long can you stay that way? Changing, to be different frightens you.
Then you must start to face your fears in another way. Do not try to hide! Don’t look for an escape way, turn around and confront whatever you’ re running away from. Now is the time.
Complaining and complaining.
You become someone who continually complains and complains about everything, but you do nothing to resolve these situations causes disappointment and complaints… It’s ironic, isn’t it? What are you waiting for to take action?
Trying to be a good person.
You would go back in time to become that nice kid the grown-ups wanted you to be. There is no such thing as perfection. We constantly make mistakes. It is useless to want to be “perfect. Rather than mature, you will become more childish. Is that what you want to achieve?
Can’t live your life.
Who will live your life if not yourself? Because you feel undeserving of being happy, you are not able to be in charge of your own life. You don’t know how to live your life, how to take care of it. What are you waiting for? Start living now.
The others before you.
