If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?
– RuPaul Charles
Loving yourself can be hard sometimes, especially when you make mistakes or failures you did not anticipate.
You can get so much advice from people around you, whether they are your family, friends, classmates, coworkers or not. What you think about yourself can affect your mood. At the end of the day, you are your own cheerleader.
It’s important to keep the following in your mind:
– Be kind and gentle to yourself.
– Know and embrace your strengths.
– Do what makes you happy.
Here is a mini worksheet you can use to start practicing self-love.
As a start, think about what made you happy. Is it a compliment you received from your friend? Is it your most recent test that you got 100% on? Write them down and check them regularly.
