You need to respect yourself, and not expect this from anyone else.
You need to love yourself just as you are, HOW?
Well you need to realise that you are you, there is no other person like you, you need to be proud of who you are, yes sure maybe you have not yet achieved what you want to achieve, or you struggling to to find yourself, you going though all these emotions of finding out who you are, that is perfectly fine.
This is the process of of life there is no timeline or book of life written, that you need to do this or that at a certain age. You are you and you writing your own book of life as you go along.
So respect yourself, be proud of who you are and what you are. Don’t judge yourself. This is your life, you make the decisions, because guess what, only you will need to live with these decisions and the choices you make.
So be proud of who you are, respect yourself. Don’t define who you are by other’s lives, create your own life, your own path, your own journey.
When you respect yourself, others respect won’t matter to you, because you will feel confident in yourself. You will appeciate who you are and what you stand for.
This is the one thing I try and teach my child to respect herself, be proud of who she is, by realising that we are all different, we all have different likes and dislikes, and we need to respect this, and realise that our likes may not be what the other person likes, but this does not make it a bad thing.
It just means we are all different and in order for us to live in harmony we need to respect ourselves firstly and respect all those around us.
If you struggling to love yourself and respect yourself. Take some time today right now say and feel the following.
Love yourself, respect yourself.
Be proud of who you are! Once you feel this, this is the energy you will send out and this is what you will get back from all who encounter you, love and respect.
Sending love and light to all
