Learning To Love Yourself

Learning To Love Yourself by Kathlyn and Gay Hendricks

When we don’t love and accept ourselves fully, we can’t ever have a great relationship or a happy life. 

Loving yourself means you don’t hide who you really are. You share your feelings – even the messy ones – and own up the truth of your life and your mistakes. You don’t need to prove anything to anyone, because you know the only opinion that matters about your self-worth is your own. You don’t accept bad treatment, or social pressure, or feel compelled to do things you don’t want to do just because you are “supposed to.” 

You can fully accept and enjoy being loved by someone else. You aren’t doubtful of their feelings. You never worry if their love will end, or if you aren’t good enough, or unworthy. You aren’t afraid of getting hurt. You don’t push love away, or run away, or subconsciously create reasons why your relationship will let you down.
