A friend of mine just asked me why I like my own posts…
My answer; setting example for others to follow. If you don’t like your own post, why should others do too?
See it as a sign of self-love and acceptance. Liking yourself is the first step to living a truly fulfilling life. High up on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is self-actualisation; which is the realization or fulfilment of one’s talents and potentials, especially considered as a drive or need present in everyone.
Everyone may not like you or what you do but as long as you are your number one fan, you spend less time being upset, emotional or unhappy about people’s opinion and focus more on consistent improvement and fulfilment.
We all desire to belong, to be accepted, to be wanted, to be appreciated, to be considered, to be remembered and to be loved but there is almost no guarantee that that will happen at all times with others but with yourself ensure that it happens always. Accept yourself, appreciate your efforts and love yourself immensely. Nothing can replace self-love, for in that lies the power to attract the love and admiration of others.
This has nothing to do with self-absorption or being full of one’s self, this has everything to do with knowing and accepting that you are one of a kind, a rare jewel, a royalty, a dazzling beauty and a capable human. If you can’t tell your self these, accept them and act on them; don’t expect the world to. Start with yourself and others will probably follow.
