We all often hear this saying that, "You can't love someone, without being in love with your own self," and even if you haven't, you should really start looking out for reasons to love yourself, even before you can ever love another person. The best way of loving yourself even before you get into a relationship is the only way of knowing your own self-worth and understanding your own strengths and weaknesses.One needs to know and understand what they love about themselves. Be it your perfect fashion sense or glossy hair or even your weird, hilarious sense of humour, you should be comfortable in your skin and love yourself first, even before anyone else can love the same great things about you.These are the ways to love yourself before you love someone else.
1.Appreciate Your Looks: There are similar striking features that we share with our family members, hence we must learn to appreciate and respect that. You need to appreciate them instead of cribbing about your looks. If you do not wish to aprreciate your own looks then, for sure, nobody else will notice you. Remember the mantra "It is important to be comfortable in your own skin!"
2.Love Your Quirky Nature: Every individual has some unique likes, dislikes and even habits. This makes them stand out in a crowd. Do you like to put ketchup on your pizza? Or have a dislike for matching socks? Well, this is one of the things that makes you, you! You do not have to be embarrassed by any of these quirky habits of yours. Learn to accept them and see how people will accept you for who you are.
3.Adore Your Intelligence: Never play dumb to get the guy or girl you want. If you think that the other person might not like the fact that you have a good head on your shoulders then, trust me, they are not the one for you! So, love your intelligence and, for sure, someone who is worthy of your knowledge will take notice.
4.Cherish Your Confidence: Generally, all are not confident about themselves. This should not be a hindrance for your growth. Looking back at the past should only give you more confidence and strength to handle situations in your present. Use this trick to fuel your confidence. In this process, people cannot take advantage of your insecurity. Be confident and love yourself.
5.Reflect On Your Mistakes: Everybody makes mistakes. No man is perfect. We need to assess what happened in the past and learn from our mistakes. This makes you have less regrets in life and no or less reasons to make you feel bad about yourself. If you are comfortable and honest with your ownself about the mistakes you've made, there are less chances of your partner not minding those.
These are the ways to love yourself before you love someone.
