Not knowing how to love yourself can be unhealthy. Noone should be plagued by indecision and self doubt. Self hate can cripple you in every area of your life.
Negativity obscures our awareness of our oneness with Life. Don't allow anyone or anything to break you down to nothing. We all are striving everyday to better ourselves. Love the skin you're in, flaws and all.
Until you know how to love yourself there will be an inner mental war going on within that creates the experience of dividing your energy and sabotaging your efforts to live in peace.
We experience the manifestations of what we FEEL and have attention on. So, in order for you to experience loving people and circumstances, you need to know how to love yourself first.
How can you give something you've never given yourself? How about appreciating the little things. Connect with others that appreciate who you are.. Also, positive thinking works!
"We Already ARE Love."
Ultimately, we already ARE love. We are Pure Awareness, the field of Love that everything appears in. Just as waves arise within an ocean, the experience of living and breathing, thoughts, feelings, and all within our lives arise as power within us, Awareness.
If you ever feel discouraged or unsure, remember that you are greater than your circumstances.
Remember to love YOURSELF.
