We all can agree it's essential for our mental health to build loving and healthy relationships with ourselves. Self-love is a big part of this process. True self-love isn’t considered a selfish act at all, in fact, it's a synonym for selfishness.
We're all different and it's normal that self-love can be something different for each of us. For me personally it’s finding a balance in everyday life, to be aware of my own needs and not feel guilty of telling my own truth even though knowing to disappoint others.
I believe no matter what our life situation is, we have the ability to grow our self-love throughout our life. What have helped me on my journey to self-love:
❤️Books for self-growing
❤️Moving body: walking in nature, biking, jogging, dancing, swimming, workout
❤️Nourishing home food
❤️Appreciating myself by acknowledging small wins everyday
❤️Treating myself with kindness (turn off the judgmental voice inside my head)
❤️Vacation with sun, sand, sea
❤️Painting or drawing
❤️Prioritizing my needs
❤️Believing in myself and having my back every time!
