It is possible to go through a whole lifetime without self love. When we do we feel lonely, empty and often depressed. Isn't it time for you?
If you aren't happy with your life, your relationships and where you are, the issue lies within. It is not your job, your relationship, car or money that will bring you lasting happiness. Nothing material can fulfill you permanently. Lack of self love leads to a feeling of not being good enough, not having the success you feel you should and not having relationships that fulfill you. Humans spend most of their lives searching for what will bring them happiness and it is no further away than their own heart.
For years, I struggled with guilt, shame, lack consciousness and relationship issues. It wasn't that I didn't have relationships, I have had more than my fair share. I had the babies I dreamed of having after the weddings I dreamed of and still wasn't happy. I was in my 50's before it all came together miraculously.
It isn't your weight, your job, your relationship or your children that will make you happy. No amount of trying to use drugs, thrills or sex will fulfill you, if you don't love yourself. You like me, will feel fulfilled, have lasting happiness and joy when you do. Here are the steps I took to love myself. If it worked for me, I know it will work for you.
