Most of us understand the concept of Self-Love and how important it is to love ourselves, but do we actually know HOW to do so in a way that truly transforms us from the inside out?
I believe true love of Self begins with an awareness of personal BOUNDARIES, displaying RESPECT for Self and others, and having a level of CONFIDENCE that is intrinsic ~ not derived from anything outside of us. And all of this first comes from Self-Awareness - becoming intimate with our inner world - what we like, what we don't like, what is "good" for us, what is "bad" for us, and allowing ourselves to be seen, heard, and felt fully with zero judgements.
This process of truly loving ALL of ourselves is much deeper than taking a bubble bath, meditating, going on a trip, etc. The list I have created is a way to access that unconditional love that parents have for their children, knowing that they are not always the easiest decisions, but it is necessary for long term success. Basically, a "How To" list to parenting ourselves because at some point, it becomes absolutely vital to develop these skills on our own!
