In a world where external validation and social pressures often overshadow our sense of self-worth, cultivating a deep and unwavering love for ourselves has become an essential pursuit. In this article, we delve into the transforming power of self-love and how to practice some strategies to nurture and strengthen our relationship with the most important person in our lives- ourselves.

Brene Brown states that, “talk to yourself like someone you love [1] .” That makes us ask  what is self-love? “Self-love is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological, and spiritual growth. Self-love means having a high regard for your own well-being and happiness. Self-love means taking care of your own needs and not sacrificing your wellbeing to please others. Self-love means not settling for less than you deserve [2] .”

According to the website Verywellmind [3] , it is important to recognize what is not self-love, “it is not about having a grandiose sense of self or being puffed up with self-importance. How can we practice self-love? The same source affirms that:

  1. Prioritize your wellbeing and mental health
  2. Embrace self-compassion
  3. Don’t compare yourself to other people
  4. Set boundaries
  5. Forgive yourself
  6. Surround yourself with supportive, loving people
  7. Change a negative mindset

In conclusion, embracing and nurturing self-love is a transformative journey that enables us to appreciate our worth, prioritize our wellbeing, and establish healthy boundaries. By practicing self-compassion, cultivating positive self-talk and engaging in self-care activities, we can unlock the full potential of self-love and experience greater happiness and fulfillment in all aspects of our lives.
