What is so wrong with loving yourself first? Self-love is so important when it comes to your sexuality, as well as other areas of your life. Do you feel good about yourself? Are you taking the time to honor yourself? If not, your sex life may reflect that. Doing what makes you happy, taking the time to care for yourself and love yourself does wonders for your self-esteem, your confidence, and even the way you treat other people. When you love yourself first, you have more love to give and you don't crave that love or attention from someone else.
But HOW can you love yourself first?
Let it go! Let go of resentment and any heartache that you're holding on to. Holding on to that negative energy just weighs you down. Forgive. Move on. Let it go.
Know your worth! There was a time in my life where I didn't love myself. I didn't feel that I had anything to offer and I wasn't worthy of love. I started to look at myself every morning and every evening before bed and I said, "I love you, and you are worth it!!". It didn't happen overnight, but eventually, I believed it.
Get healthy! This is also not something that happens overnight, but every choice you make leads to a healthier life. When I started recognizing my worth, I started paying attention to my health and what I was putting in my body. I wrote it down and created an action plan. You are what you eat!
Get moving! Start exercising! Often, we do not feel good about ourselves because we are overweight or low on energy. Exercising can help you to turn that around. Start slow with walking, or a casual bike ride, then ramp it up. The hardest part is normally getting started, but once you do...you can't stop!
Take time for yourself! Take the time to love and care for yourself. What do you like to do? Are you making time for that? Read a book, write it your journal, cook your favorite dish, or take a walk at the park. Do something that serves you!
These are some ways to help you get started loving yourself first!
