Love, many believe that this can only be shared between two people, but the most important relationship is the one you hold with yourself. Loving your-self is probably what most of us are lacking which is why we are so hard on ourselves and continuously put ourselves down for simple mistakes. It needs to said that there is nothing wrong in being comfortable in who you are, it is okay to be confident.

Loving yourself is often confused with being arrogant and egotistic but that is not the case. There is a big difference between these, arrogance leads you to believe you are better than everyone else rather than thinking that you are enough to receive the love and care you need. Constantly thinking you are not enough is one of the worst habits one can have. You will feel inferior to everyone else and believe that you suck at everything which is not the case. If you think like you will constantly be comparing yourself to others which is also horrible. Someone of you may need to hear that its okay to make mistakes, its okay to not be the best at everything.

There are a lot of ways to show self-love. For one you can treat yourself. Treat yourself with snacks, clothes, a small trip to your favorite store, really to anywhere you enjoy. Another way is to let yourself rest! I cannot stress how important it is, this is an essential to life.In the wise words of RuPaul “ if you can’t love yourself how the hell you gonna love somebody else” .
