Love yourself enough to....


Love yourself enough to earn the money that is required to take care of yourself and feel good about yourself. We all are not going to have Oprah or Bill Gates’ money but we can try to make a decent amount of money. Now if you are presently unemployed, it doesn’t mean you don’t love yourself though. Love yourself enough to seize every opportunity to prove yourself to the world. Love yourself enough to keep trying to get there without quitting. Because if you quit, you probably won’t ever own that car or live in that house or provide for your family. Prove to yourself [not anyone else] that you love yourself enough to want these good things for yourself and would work to get them.


Love yourself enough to appear good all the time. It might not always be the case but love yourself enough to try your best. A smile and a compliment here and there are too good not to get from people from time to time.


Love yourself enough to forgive yourself when you do the dumbest crap that no one might ever know about but you.  And if people do find out, love yourself enough to forgive yourself anyway because that is the only way you can be able to face them without breaking down or losing it and doing more stupid things. And who hasn’t done some weird and really dumb stuff before? Move on.

Love yourself enough to be with and encourage the relationship of whoever makes you feel good about yourself. If it is always sad, frustrating, brutal and loveless, love yourself enough to know that you deserve better.

Love yourself enough to be happy with other people’s progress, appreciate other people’s beauty and laud their achievements. Because if you aren’t and always looking for a way to put them down, then you are indirectly saying you aren’t happy with who you are, how you look and your situation. This brings us to the next one...

Love yourself enough to be positive about your life no matter the situation you find yourself in. Stop calling yourself a loser. Keep working hard. It would eventually pay off. Stop drowning in self pity because you are overweight. Stick to a diet and lots of exercise with discipline. It would pay off. 

Love yourself enough to develop yourself spiritually, mentally and in every other way. Love yourself enough to explore whatever keeps you in a good place. Not drugs or any bad habit because they are destructive and you gotta really hate yourself to mess with those.

Love yourself more today. And spread some around too.

Lily Johnson.

  7. Loving ourselves is important. I like how you said we should laud the achievements of others. Someone else's success, even if in the same field as us doesn't take away from our own ability to achieve success.

  20. What a beautiful post Lily. I guess that's why we can only love others if we have learnt to love ourselves first.
    e.g. If you cant forgive yourself, how can you forgive others?
