( Here is the God’s honest truth – life sucks. Sometimes. Everything that goes on around us can have such an effect on us that we question it all. In those times when things are the hardest, it is so important to practice self-care. And one of the best ways to do that is to find ways that teach you how to love yourself more.

Love is the principal thing. We give it to everyone else in our lives (even those that we don’t know that well) and we forget that we ourselves need it just as much. You might feel guilty wanting to give yourself attention, but the reality is, far too many women don’t see their own worth or beauty. You deserve love, from others and from yourself. It’s one of the best things you can do.

So here are some ways to love yourself, just a little bit more.

Let People Go

If there are toxic people in your life, it can be hard to see the beauty that you possess. It can be difficult, but starting the process of letting go in order to free yourself of those who mean you no good is a great step toward loving yourself. It shows that you care about you enough to get rid of the people that don’t.

Pamper Yourself

Alone time with your thoughts and getting to know yourself more is amazing self-love. You can go on a day trip somewhere local, go to the spa or spend time doing something you enjoy. You put a lot of effort into making sure everyone else is okay, you have to give yourself that same courtesy.

Post Encouraging Messages

I have a friend that does this. It can be a simple quote, a bible scripture or something that reminds you to love who you are. Use post-it notes to accomplish this. Place them in areas that you frequent often around your house as well as in your car and at work. They serve as great refreshers when you need words of positivity most.

Reward Yourself

When you have done something good or finally finished a project, don’t think twice about rewarding yourself for a job well done. Maybe it’s going out to a restaurant you’ve been wanting to try for a long time, or buying yourself something very nice. No matter what the reward is, the idea is to acknowledge your efforts and celebrate you.

Speak to Yourself

Sometimes you have to speak good things over yourself. The power of your words extend to the things you say about you just as much as they do for other people. Don’t be afraid to pay yourself a compliment throughout the day. Hype yourself up.

There are many things pressing against you, but take it all in stride. Learning to love yourself more comes easier for some than it does for others, but that doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you understand how important it is to grow in love with who you and then take the necessary steps to make that a reality. You are worth it!
