Love yourself first... what does that really mean?
I was chatting with a friend today about the work that I do and the levels of love that we work through.
Part of the work, of course, is about loving yourself first.
“I have a problem with the concept” she said.
“It’s banded about all over the internet lately and it’s allowing people to disregard others.
Make plans and not follow through.
Close down without considering others’ points of view.
And I don’t like it” she explained.
And she’s right!
If you take loving yourself first to directly translate to the allowance of selfishness then sadly this is what can happen.
I speak to many women who believe they are agreeing with me when I talk about loving yourself first, when I fact they are looking thr wrong way.
You see, to love yourself first means to respect yourself, to look to be the highest version of yourself, to show up to the world with love first.
What that means is you allow yourself to communicate from a space of love, choose to not be affected by others while keeping your heart open to everyone else’s perspective on life - because your way isn’t the same as anyone else’s!
Taking control over your actions, and reactions. Being able to look back on a conversation with peace and not overwhelm or discontent - this is to love yourself first.
Of course, there are deeper and more specific ways of leading life in this way but to start here, this can in itself change your life!
If you would like to know more about how you can step in to your true self, love yourself first - properly - and positively affect all of your world, schedule a free call.
In this call we will look at where you are at, where you want to be and specifically how to get to the place. With love.
