Life becomes beautiful when you learn to be as good to yourself as you are to others. – Anonymous
Self-love is something that is vital but we often ignore it in the midst of maintaining different relationships in life. You feel that maintaining those relationships are crucial because they are the ones you love and care for the most.
But you should understand that you need to take care of yourself as much as you care for others. Take out time to spend only with yourself. Get in touch with what you truly love and engage with it. Give yourself space to grow and get to know yourself.
Only when you love yourself, you will be able to love others adequately. It does not mean that we will only prioritize ourselves. It means that we include ourselves in the priority list as well. It might sound intuitive but we often forget to prioritize our own needs meddled in the humdrum of life.
Life will become beautiful when you are truly happy. You will find your happy place. You might also find out about a passion that you never knew of. Loving yourself basically means coming in touch with your true self.
When you discover yourself more and more, you start loving yourself more. This makes you happy and you are ready to spread the joy to others as well.
Therefore, it is important to not forget yourself in the quest to become a good person in the eyes of others or in taking care of those who love. Nurture yourself on priority and others as well and grow together to lead a beautiful life.
