The way you see yourself will affect the way people see you and the way you see yourself will affect the way you see people. Did you get that? If you didn’t, please read it again.
Self-love is not selfish because if you love yourself, you will love people and if you loathe yourself or wallow in self-pity, you will definitely act the same to others. The way you treat people is a reflection of the way you treat yourself.

Most if not all the crimes committed in the history of the human race and wars can be traced to self-hatred. The instigators of such didn’t value themselves and so automatically they didn’t value the lives of people. See, the change and peace we are looking for in the world starts with you and I. Be that agent of change you are looking for but to be an agent of change, you need to love people but you can’t love people until you love yourself first but how can I love myself? You may ask. You can develop self-love by seeing yourself the way God sees you- Fearfully and wonderfully made(Psalm 139:14). That means you are special, unique and loved by God. That makes all the difference in the world.

Love is contagious. Love can be spread. So, start spreading love today. Little things like smiling, giving(time and money) can mean something big to someone. Spread love today and never stop.

Thanks for reading and God bless you.

  3. I know this is true. Part of me is working on loving myself. It’s a long journey before me and I don’t know when I’ll achieve such a thing as self-love.

    Honestly, I’m seeing my father in myself. I dislike my father, thus I’m starting to develop a sort of hatred for myself too.

    Fortunately, I’m confident that someday I’ll love myself and I’ll view the world from a different perspective as long as I don’t give up.

    Thank you for the post, by the way, I finally found what I needed.

    1. I want you to know that you are not your father. You are better than your father. Always remember that. Besides that, you need to stop hating your father, it’s mostly for your good. Forgiveness is not easy but it’s possible and it’s a step towards developing self-love. Do this and you will become the blossoming girl that you are.
      I’m also glad that you found what you needed. More than glad really
