Love Yourself – Here's How

by Anne-Sophie Reinhardt on October 19, 2012

Self-Love starts with a clear concept of who you are.

Being authentic, both on the inside and the outside, takes courage, strength and a deep knowledge of what you’re all about.

The good thing is that you’re not alone on this journey to more self-awareness and self-love.

Today, we’ll make a big step forward.

Ready?

Here are a few questions you can ask yourself:

Who am I?

What does self-love mean to me?

How would self-love make me feel?

What makes me me?

What do I like?

What doesn’t interest me at all?

What am I all about?

What keeps me from loving myself?

What do I want in life?

What do I want to be like?

What is unique about you?

How do my friends describe me?

What is different about me?

What excites me?

What annoys me?

What am I truly passionate about?

What are the achievements I am the most proud of?

What am I most grateful for in life?

What are the most important things to me in life?

 

I want to hear from you:

How do you love yourself?

What are you struggling with?

What are you simply not satisfied with?

One secret tip I have for you that keeps most people from loving themselves: ACTION!

Most people never take action and they just wallow in self-pity. I know that you’re different and that you want to dig yourself out of this hole of self-hatred. So, take the first step towards more self-love and write down what it is you truly want, who you are and how you feel about yourself.

good start at all. I love your way you describe things! really. ๐Ÿ™‚
Ok, Iยดll try it this afternoon – it would be helpful ( for others?) if you write under the video some questions which could help ๐Ÿ™‚ Something like “How do you see outside?” “How do you feel outside” etc. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ella, my sunshine, thanks so much for posting. I love your suggestion and will definitely put it to use. Can you tell me a bit more about your questions, just so I *get* them just right?

I mean, the things you said at the end of the video ๐Ÿ™‚ “What is it what makes you you?” “Who are you!” Something like this ๐Ÿ™‚

Part of the reason I struggle with loving my body is because my partner is not as attracted to me as he used to be. He still loves and values me and has not asked me to change my appearance but it’s a vicious cycle. I know he isn’t as attracted to me as he once was so I lose confidence, which makes him even less attracted to me. I keep thinking the only solution is to do what I used to do when I felt this way -diet and lose weight. I am sick of weight cycling and I believe in Health at Every Size. I want to overcome this some other way but the confidence seems long gone.

Hey sweetie, this IS a tricky situation and I can totally see that this makes you insecure. Is the reason your partner isn’t attracted you anymore as much as he used to be really your weight? If so, is this something you want? In the end, it’s YOU who has to feel comfortable in your body and you can achieve this. You’ll never get to self-love by placing your self-worth on the opinion of others. I know that’s easier said than done, but if you practice body-accpetance, you’ll get to a point where it doesn’t matter anymore what others think. I’m sending you much love on this journey.
