When I speak about self love, I never want anyone to assume that what you accept and honor in yourself, ends with you.
Because Love is an ideal that embodies and an array of spiritually and emotionally inclined qualities, it always begin with self but can be understood to be shared with others; Shared with others no matter sex, sexual orientation, faith, color, nationality or age. The critical point I want you to always understand is that the answer to the highest level of BEing is SELF LOVE. The best relationships, the best communication, the best self image, and the best life are all a reflection of how you choose to love your self.
When we have not completely accepted who we are or all that has occurred in our lives we live through fear, doubt, anger, hate, anger, guilt, and distrust. Living with those lenses affects the choices we make in ALL areas of life.
Why am I sharing this? Because the answer to a better world is love.
#TruthMoment- for most people who don't live life through an understanding of "awareness" and "mindfulness," the ego is in complete control of your thoughts and actions. A life governed by the ego is one in which judgement, wars, hate, massacres, inequality, self destruction, and self hate reign supreme.
Every time you've wanted to hurt another or wished hurt on to another was because of hurt that existed in you. Every time you judged another based off how they looked or things they've done was because you have challenges with acceptance. As a woman, you judge other women's "beauty" based off your own ideas of body image.
When love reigns supreme, acceptance is front forward.
How you view, treat and honor yourself effects everyone you interact with, thus effecting the world around you.
