Why Can’t You Love Yourself And Be Happy?

Love yourself

Love yourself – You’re looking to fill an emptiness that is inside of you, and you think that the answer to your ultimate happiness lies in changing your external circumstances – the partner, the job, the house, even your body.

Nigeria News which to tell you that in order to fill that void, you must first learn to do the very thing that will change how you feel about yourself.

You Must Learn To Love Yourself

When you love yourself, you’ll be able to celebrate the inner peace and happiness you feel WITH the outside world, not THROUGH it.

When you love yourself, you can enjoy the love you receive from others and don’t worry that they might lose interest or leave.

When you love yourself, you are unapologetic about living a life that speaks to you and who you really are. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone.

Learning to love yourself is powerful, but easier than you may think. #loveyourself– Loving yourself changes your life more than anything else you can do.

We think the reason for our unhappiness is “out there,” and we go around searching for someone, or something, to solve it for us.

We do whatever we can to avoid looking inward, because looking inward feels scary. It means acknowledging our sadness, remembering past hurts, facing our fears.

We reject self-love as the powerful, uplifting force in our lives it can be. We reduce it to the territory of “conceited people” or scoff at the ridiculousness of “positive affirmations.”

We take our credit cards, our three course meals, our barely-satisfying relationships, and we wrap ourselves in their protective cocoon… anything but acknowledging how we feel inside.

But we are wrong… so very wrong about what loving ourselves means, and how it feels.

You don’t need to prove anything to anyone, because you know the only opinion that matters about your self-worth is your own.

You don’t accept bad treatment, or social pressure, or feel compelled to do things you don’t want to do just because you are “supposed to.”

You can fully accept and enjoy being loved by someone else. You aren’t doubtful of their feelings. You never worry if their love will end, or if you aren’t good enough, or unworthy.

You aren’t afraid of getting hurt. You don’t push love away, or run away, or subconsciously create reasons why your relationship will let you down.

You are at peace with yourself, and can channel your energy into CREATING what you want, not PROTECTING what you don’t want to lose.
