Love is one of the most beautiful gifts of life without which there remains no meaning or drive in life. If we ponder for a while to find the importance of love in our life then we will realize that actually love is the single driving force for which we do everything. It is love of life that we exist and try to survive in this world.
It’s the love between man and woman that brings offspring to this world and thus life moves forward through generations. Without love we will cease to remain humans as emotions play an important part in life. Many animals feel love and affinity between themselves and if we stop loving then humans will be nothing other than robots. We need to be loved and also love someone. Love is of various forms; parent child love, sibling love, love between friends, romantic love and so on. Therefore, we remain surrounded by various forms of love which make life meaningful as we feel cherished.
What Does Loving Yourself Mean
Loving someone actually means loving yourself. This is because when we love someone it gives us immense pleasure and to give pleasure to the self means loving the self. The more you love others the more you get pleasure. By appreciating the self you actually exude a pleasant confidence that renders magnetism about you. This immediately attracts love thereby making you a lovable person.
How To Love Yourself
Loving yourself is very simple. Most of us do it without even being aware of it. But loving the self should be done in the right balance which means neither you should love yourself to the point of becoming narcissistic or selfish nor should you love yourself so less to feel absolutely selfless.
Loving the self means to love being what you are, accept what life has given you happily by bringing out the brighter sides and by becoming aware of yourself. By becoming aware of yourself means that you should be able to introspect and also look at yourself to find out both strengths and weaknesses in you.
This means you should know yourself well first by being bold enough to accept your flaws and proud to identify your qualities. Once you are aware of these you can try to get rid of your weaknesses and build upon the strengths. This way you will become a very appreciable human being for whom love will come easily.
Identify the people who already love you which may include your parents, your friends and siblings and so on. Now think why they love you so much or you can also ask them why they love you. Once you know the reasons you will find it quite convincing to love yourself. It doesn’t matter actually what kind of physical appearance was given to you by nature.
It is up to you how you make yourself appear to the world. Every aspect and individual on this earth has certain good and certain bad sides. Same is about your appearance. Try to accentuate the strengths of your looks and try to cover up the weaknesses. Do personal grooming and don’t hesitate to pamper yourself at times.
