When did you start loving yourself?
I learnt about self-love long time back. I had struggled with depression in my adolescent days. I used to avoid meeting people. Every passing day felt like an obstacle to be overcome. During those days, I was existing rather than living. Eventually, I overcame it as I discovered self-love. And then I just started loving myself more and more.
How did it impact your life?
Love is something that gives you a piece of your soul that you never knew was missing. Love is a deep appreciation. When I started loving myself, I grew a deep appreciation for who I am. I was able to accept myself with all my deformities, peculiarities, failures and with all my wonderful qualities, too. Therefore, now when people don’t like me, it doesn’t matter to me at all. I realized that my mistakes don’t define me. Rather, I began focusing on learning from my mistakes. I started to feel more confident and assertive. I became more purposeful, which has led me to reach where I am today.
What can the readers do to love themselves?
Look deep inside and tell yourself what you love about yourself. Focus on the positive things and inspire yourself. When you confront your dark parts, just be kind enough to forgive yourself. You are only human and humans make mistakes. To be successful in the long run, you must fail sometimes. So don’t let the fear of making the wrong decision prevent you from making any decision at all. Remember that you won’t always get what you want. But don’t worry about that. There are so many people who will never have what you have right now. So use the pain, frustration and inconvenience to motivate you instead of letting it annoy you. Believe in your abilities, not in what others say about you. You are in charge of the way you look at your life. People may bully you but don’t let them control your life. Do something every day that makes you happy. Maybe listen to your favorite songs or eat something you like. And before going to bed just recall anything funny or anything at all that gives you peace at the end of the day. And gradually you will discover you are in love with you.
