What is self-love? We can think of it as a desire to give our own well-being a level of importance and respect. If you love yourself, you have regard for yourself. It’s about treating yourself as well as you would treat anyone you love.
But most of us have been conditioned to believe that we should put ourselves last. We do this under the guise of caring about others or modesty. However, this is very self-defeating. You can’t do as much for others when you don’t make yourself a priority, too.
You have to live with yourself every minute of the day, so you may as well enjoy your company!
