It’s Okay to Love Yourself

It’s both healthy and necessary.

In today’s world, it’s understandable to feel defeated. For whatever reason, it’s normal to feel helpless or hopeless. You are a real human being with real emotions.

It’s important to love yourself. You are a person worthy of respect, dignity, and love. The world may not give it to you, but you can definitely give it to yourself.

There will be people that will tell you that it’s selfish to do so. Well, they’re wrong. In order to live a good life, you will need to have some level of self-respect, self-esteem, and self-confidence.

It is important to stay within reason. It’s okay to love yourself, so long as you don’t become arrogant.

So go ahead and say, “I love myself!” It’s a sign of a strong person who is stepping into her/his power.
