Self acceptance and self love go hand in hand, your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship in your life. It is the relationship that shapes your interactions with your partner, with your children and your family, it influences how you behave. It is the relationship that influences your friendships and the people you choose to have in your life, it influences how you interact with your boss and your colleagues, it influences how you behave. How you feel about yourself is so important, it is the relationship that determines all others.
How you feel about yourself influences the choices you make in life and can keep you from finding where you belong, can keep you from living the life you really want, can keep you from believing you can be who you want to be. How you feel about yourself influences who you choose to be with, who you choose have in your life, the people you surround yourself with and can hold you back from finding your tribe, the people you belong with.
Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship in your life and it is this relationship you should focus on first. Self-talk is what you say to yourself, your inner dialogue, how you talk to yourself matters, your inner talk influences your self belief, your inner talk influences what you aspire to, your inner talk is as important as your outer expression. Your outer expression is how you express yourself in your world, how you interact in your world, how you are received in your world, how others respond to your presence. Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship in your life as it influences everything in your life.
Cultivating a better relationship with yourself is self care, you can change how you feel about yourself by becoming aware of your inner dialogue, and changing the way you talk to yourself. You may have an inner critic who you find yourself arguing with and it may take quite a bit of effort to silence her/him. You may have limiting beliefs that hold you back from getting what you want and you may need to remind yourself that you are worthy. You may have self doubts that keep you from being who you know you can be and you may need to remind yourself that you are enough just by being you. You may not like your body, you may feel like it is betraying you and you may need to remind yourself that this is the body your soul has chosen to embody, it is what carries you through life and it is remarkable in what it achieves everyday. Becoming aware of how you are talking to yourself will help you identify what is holding you back, will help you determine what you need to work on so you believe in yourself again.
When you believe in yourself you feel worthy of love, worthy of joy, worthy of laughter, when you believe in yourself you feel beautiful in your body just the way you are. Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship in your life and this is the relationship you should focus on above all others.
Love yourself and believe in yourself, this is what will determine how you interact with life. Believe in yourself so you have the confidence to be yourself because you believe in who you are and what you are about. Love yourself so you see your beauty, the beauty in you, how beautiful you are, so that you see your value, the value in who you are, how valuable you are. Believe in your life so find where you belong and know you are here because this is where you need to be.
Love your life and life will love you back.
