It seems that in this world love comes with conditions. If you are good enough you will be loved, if you look right you will be loved, if you act in a certain way that pleases people you will be loved.
We grow up constantly judging ourselves and beating ourselves up for not being good enough or not conforming to how we think we should be and become fearful that we are not lovable as we are. Then we pass this attitude on to our children and create another generation of people who feel unworthy of love.
It’s time to stop now though. It’s time to be gentle with ourselves. To stop judging ourselves and beating ourselves up for not being how we think we should be. It’s time to accept ourselves fully no matter what we look like, no matter how we speak, no matter what we do.
It is time to love ourselves unconditionally.
How can we do this?
1. Be present in this moment (stop thinking about the past or future)
2. Stop judging yourself and others (forgive yourself and others for being the way we are)
3. Accept yourself fully (no matter what!)
Once you are able to love yourself unconditionally, then you attract people around you that are able to love you – no matter what!
