Speak to your self like you’d speak to others. Forgive yourself like you’d forgive others. Laugh with yourself like you’d laugh with others. Treat yourself like the living, breathing, beautiful human being you are... like the living, breathing, beautiful human beings around you and whom you love. I’m, like most people, not an expert on this but this approach helped me. Sometimes you are so harsh on yourself in ways you’d never be with people around you because you’d know it’s overdramatic and irrational. But when it’s with your own body and soul, bullying is suddenly okay. lt’s all easier said than done. This all might sound a bit cliche, so try to really think about what I wrote and relate it to your personal life to make it practical. (I didn’t come up with this stuff). Take care.
I can say it took me a long time. You have to only be focused on yourself. I believe you should learn how to love yourself before you get into a relationship. So, that being said, do not focus on a boyfriend/girlfriend, just focus on YOU. figure out the things you dislike about yourself and everyday, look in the mirror and look at that thing you dislike about yourself and say.. IM BEAUTIFUL. You have to worry about yourself mentally before worrying about others. Because.. say you're mentally worn out, but your friend is going through some stuff too and of course she comes to you and is just babbling about how hard her life is and everything. Okay, you will be there for her, but I promise you it'll only mentally stress you out more, so, make sure to tell your friend, " hey I'm really sorry, I don't want to sound mean, but I'm going through so much too." then.. you all will most likely talk about what you're both going through. Loving yourself takes so much time and effort, you have to be dedicated to wanting to actually wanting to love yourself to the extent. But don't get cocky and love yourself more than others, that is not what I'm saying to do. Just, in the process of loving yourself.. you have to always make sure your mental health is okay. You have to be first. You have to worry about you at all times. I hope this helped some.
