We give to others what we have in our hearts to give. And the more you love yourself, the more you will be able to love those you come in contact with. It’s a magical thing.
Give more love to yourself and you will have more to give to others.
“Love yourself —accept yourself—forgive yourself—and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.” ~Leo F. Buscaglia
There is no greater love than self love.
There is no greater love than self love. And as you begin to love yourself more and more each day, you will discover that it will become a lot easier for you to love those around you as well.
What I will share with you today is a list of 10 magical things that start to happen as you begin to love yourself.
- Authenticity – Living your own authentic truth reduces anguish and emotional suffering
- Respect – Loving yourself produces self respect and respect of others.
- Maturity – A mature attitude grows as you realise that everything surrounded you is working in your best interests.
- Self-confidence – A self assurance comes with realising that you are in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment.
- Simplicity – Living in the present and doing what brings you joy and happiness simplifies everything.
- Love of Oneself – With your new self respect you only accept things that are good for your health – including food, people, things, situations, and actions.
- Modesty – No more egoistic grandstanding.We are human beings and can allow ourself to do things like make mistakes

While it might feel or seem like we’re being “selfless” by focusing on others and forgetting about ourselves, the truth is this is not selfless at all. In fact, a person who forfeits their sense of self ends up relying on others for support and validation to feel okay.
