When some people see the word self love, they think, well, I just can't think about myself, what about everyone else? When in truth, they are 50% correct. Love is required in how you treat yourself so that you can be able to show others what love means.
When you live a life of self love, not only are you honoring yourself, but you are also showing others what's important to you, and you impact them to take on some of the practices that you've instated in your life.
One of the most simple examples of this is when you honor your body. When you eat well and regularly exercise, at least 1 person around you will admittingly or even secretly use you as motivation for their own journey. Often people are taking note of your lifestyle without letting you know, which is why everything we do in our life, makes a difference for others.
So see it this way; you loving yourself and living your best life, provides a model of what that looks like for someone else. As more people choose a life of positivity, higher consciousness, self respect, healthy selfishness, unrestricted selflessness, and honoring themselves, the world will continue to transform. We are absolutely in an age of mindfulness, and it's a beautiful thing to see it spread. Through the vehicle of social media, people share verbal and audio messages that encourage self love, tolerance, joy, gratitude and so much more.
Self love opens a new world for you as well as those around you. People learn the importance of boundaries, expectations, transparency, vulnerabilities, and most of self care.
Remember self love isn't just about you. You will always impact someone else, and are we not all meant to leave a legacy in some kind of way?
