Dangers of Not Loving Yourself..

Lack of loving yourself can lead you to make harmful choices. It often equates to a lack of self-worth that leads to conscious or unconscious self-sabotage and prevents individuals from advocating for their own basic needs.

Lack of yourself can lead to a harmful dependence on others for validation. Relying on others for validation often leads people to set aside their own needs in order to gain others’ approval.

Lack of loving yourself can also prevent emotional healing and progress; one study showed that individuals who engage in self-blame and ignoring themselves had poorer outcomes in psychotherapy.

I tried finding out and wanted to share with other women who, in a situation like mine who wanted to feel happy, loving and well. In a core solution energy I decided to compile self -love recipe anybody can use in loving themselves..

1. Do not Compare

In as much as we tends to be competitive, comparing yourself can be very dangerous although is natural…But there is absolutely no point in comparing yourself to anyone else on the planet because there is no photocopy of you..it is just only you..in that case instead of comparing yourself to anyone else , focus on yourself and journey ahead .

This is fundamental! So many things in the world want to distract you from this powerful truth. Sometimes even your own internalized sexism affirms your thoughts of inadequacy. You are valuable because you are you, not because of your body.
