Self love wasn't what I thought it was before I learned it. It means NO derogatory speech, not even in jest. It means nourishing my body with the best foods that it craves. It means painting my nails and wearing nice clothes. It means saying no to all the ways people want to take advantage of you or make you feel wrong for walking your path. It means enjoying your own company, taking yourself to the opera, symphony or rock concert because you want to go. It means getting enough rest. It means not letting yourself worry about what other people think, do, or say. It means giving yourself permission to walk your path, your way, to whatever destination you feel like going to. It means walking away from abusive relationships, even with family. It means valuing yourself, your beliefs, your ideas, and your abilities. It means being "selfish". It means YOU COME FIRST no matter what.
The real key to self love is self awareness because until you know what you want, what you fear, what you believe, what you'll accept and won't, you can't bring any of that into your life.
You are here with purpose.
You are precious and valuable.
