“Your self love is a medicine for the earth” ~Yung Pueblo
My teachers often speak about the importance of connecting to our own deep center and the divine essence within. Unconditional self-love and self-compassion are the first steps to becoming free of suffering.
What does that mean to love yourself? Pure and simple, if we want to love someone, we must love ourselves unconditionally first.
Believing in our hearts, knowing in our bones that we are enough just as we are is key for being able to live a happier healthier more love filled life.
I know this to be true.
There were a whole lot of years I didn’t feel good about who I was.
I struggled with anxiety, insecurity, and depression among other things. Looking back, I suffered a lot.
It’s not that way for me anymore. I accept who I am, the way I am, and love me for it.
“The love and attention you always thought you wanted from someone else, is the love and attention you first need to give to yourself.” – Bryant McGill
When struggles do arise, as they will given the human nature that I am, I don’t get gripped by fear or insecurity or feelings of less than. I don’t beat myself up anymore.
