Self-Care Self- Love

Updated: Apr 13, 2022

And above all these put-on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony."

Colossians 3:14

What's Love got to do with it? I am so glad you asked, Love has everything to do with self-care, Self-love plays a significant role in our holistic approach to wellness. When we take the time to love on ourselves that same love will allow us to show up and love on others.

" Self-love is perhaps one of the most fundamental yet misunderstood concepts in the world right now. Some dismiss it as a new age ideology that cannot be applied in practical terms. But nothing could be further from the truth. Self-love is the ultimate way to boost your self-esteem and become a fully healed and integrated human being. People often come at the idea backwards. But fundamentally, all radical change begins from within. You then start to really value yourself as a powerful creator of your own reality and deserving of love and respect from everybody. Selflove is the opposite of selfish. You cannot love another person unconditionally unless you love yourself first. It has nothing to do with arrogance or narcissism and everything to do with becoming a fully whole and integrated individual. When you are able to exercise self-love, your life will become so much easier. This is because you will not sabotage yourself as much, which is what everybody does with their beliefs about unworthiness. You will also have much more stability in your life as you will no longer depend on others for fulfillment. Your emotions and reactions will not be volatile and you will actually become detached (but not uncaring) from a lot of stuff that goes on in the world. Love is the ultimate building block of the entire universe. Humans are born into the arms of loving parents and die with their loved ones around them (ideally). They live and die by love alone. In the words of Gautama Buddha: “In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
