How do you love yourself? You show love for yourself by acting in the same way you show love for others.
Give yourself compassion. Nurture your body and soul and mind. When you need time, take it. When you need care, give yourself the care you need. Reward yourself from time to time, sometimes for a job well done, and sometimes for no reason other than you cherish yourself. Acknowledge and accept all of yourself and embrace your good actions while forgiving yourself for your mistakes. Learn from them both. When you have the courage to love yourself, you can receive love from others. Letting others love you opens the way for deeper relationships with them. Live Honest, Open and True Today, work to hold yourself in high-esteem. Forgive yourself for your mistakes. Do not explain or justify yourself. Treat yourself with the love and kindness you normally reserve for others. I believe in you and want the best for you and know you can achieve the best for yourself.
