learn to love yourself and all the flaws...

16th December 2011
Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you is determinism; the way you play it is free will. Jawaharlal Nehru

I went home last night feeling really good about life, I’ve had a great week at work, my meetings have been full of honesty and caring.  And the one thing I think we realised from them is it's okay to be different - you don't need to be like everyone else. You're perfect as you are!  We are all individuals, and a number on a chart or a weight on a scale doesn’t define us.

Sometimes you may worry whether other people like you.  At those times, you may pretend to be somebody other than yourself. For example, you may try to act, talk, or dress like someone you admire. You're great right now. You don't need to act like anyone else. In fact, things will go a lot better, and you'll feel happier, if you'll just be yourself.

If you feel you need to be different from your true self, the problem may not be with you, but with the people around you. Perhaps they're trying to change you. Change is a part of life, and there may be behaviours that you can improve upon within yourself, but be sure that you're not trying to change into a different person.  And also know that true friends love you as you are and won't try to change you into someone new. True friends will ask you to stop dangerous behaviours, but they won't try to change you in ways that make you feel bad about yourself.

So spend your time with true friends, instead of with people who don't understand you. Things go better when you trust your intuition.  Whatever the situation, you always know what to do in your heart, so always trust your inner truth and act upon it.  Great things can happen when you follow your own inner voice, we are all here to make a positive difference to this world. And the best way to do so is by being true to yourself, remember you're amazing always.

No sure if you wanna be you?  Trust me, you’re the perfect person for the part and a bit of Self-Love is the Key to Life.  Love makes the world go round, but it all begins with you. If you want others to treat you well, treat yourself well first. If you seek love from another, fall in love with yourself first.  Whenever you need a little self-esteem boost, inspiring and motivational self-love quotes. In fact if you’re really struggling with the whole self-love thing, jot down your favourite and tape it to your mirror or computer to help remind you to cherish yourself.   Here’s a few to choose from;

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.  Oscar Wilde
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.

Self-love seems so often unrequited. Anthony Powell

To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness. Robert Morely

If you aren't good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you'll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren't even giving to yourself.  Barbara De Angelis

Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others. Wilfred Peterson

The first stop on the road to romance is you. Honoring and loving yourself opens the door for another to truly do the same. Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway

"If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws, you can love other people so much better. And that makes you so happy. Kristin Chenoweth
Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults. Les Brown

Love yourself instead of abusing yourself.  Karolina Kurkova

To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself heaven. Don't wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now. Alan Cohen
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve love and affection.  Buddha

I don't like myself, I'm crazy about myself. May West

If you think all that’s nonsense and won’t help, trust me, I haven’t always been this happy content person you see now, I used to be a real miserable cow who had no time for anyone (as my old work colleagues 10 years ago!) and things like sticking quotes up around my house have made a difference along with a whole lot of other things.  Give it a go, what you got to lose. xx
