It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.
Concern for oneself enables one to show concern for others. Yet most of us tend to consider self-concern as a negative thing.
But does it really make any sense to never have any care or concern for your own needs and well-being?
You may have heard it said before, “You have to love yourself before you can love others.”
There is much truth in this, for if we wish to be of any use to others in our life, we need to take care of ourselves first.
Additionally, if we cannot love ourselves, we will have no love in our bucket to give to others.
It is necessary to show ourselves love and concern, to work on improving our potential and abilities.
If we are worn down and tired, we really are only able to achieve part of our potential, and we most likely will be lacking when it comes to giving or receiving love.
When I give to others, I want to be able to give to the best of my abilities–to give all that I am and all that I can–and I really cannot do this very well if I am not happy and filled with love.
When we take care of ourselves, we go out into the world each day with abundance, not with lacking, and our happiness and experience in life is directly correlated with this abundance.
Love yourself each day–find contentment and happiness, put away your anger and hate, build upon your knowledge and abilities, and ensure that you are well prepared to contribute positively to the world around you.
What you put into your life… is the same thing that will come out of it.
Today Ensure that your needs are taken care of today so that you are able to effectively tend to the needs of others.
