Five Reasons Why Self Love is Important

Self love can fluctuate. We are designed to love ourselves so that we can better love others. Let’s look at five reasons why self love is important. Perhaps these will help all of us love ourselves the way we should.

Five Reasons Why Self Love is Important:

1. Self- love motivates us to make healthy choices.

A person who holds self in high esteem is more likely to make good choices that improve one’s life, and to nurture well-being, to be beneficial in all areas. We are more likely to make good choices in our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual life.

2. Self-love helps us forgive ourselves and accept ourselves as being less than perfect.

Rather than being driven to excel in every area, we quit expecting excellence in every area with the predictable disappointment in some. We learn it is quite okay for someone else to be tops in certain things. We support them while we concentrate on developing our own unique gifts.

Self-love gives us a break.

Accept your limitations. Hone your skills. If you do not excel in every area, give yourself some love and acceptance -much as if you were parenting a child.  Parent your you; love and accept you.  Award and congratulate you for doing well, for being caring and kind, for doing the best of your ability in the realm of your greatest gifting. Remember, it’s okay not to excel in everything. Supporters for others are a glorious commodity.

Self-love allows us to have more resilience. 

We can bounce back.  We recover faster when we show ourselves respect and care and love. Resilience is so essential in maintaining a well-modulated life, recovering from the dastardly blows, and believing that we will rise again. This is true in a physical as well as spiritual sense. We must nourish every part of our person and personality. 

Self-love grows as our relationship with God grows.

The gift of grace enriches  and we learn to give grace even to ourselves. God loves us as we are. He forgives us, he encourages us, he tells us to rest, he feeds us with His word, he forgives us through His grace, he does not degrade us by calling us names, but rather tells us he loves us, that we are his, and gives us a new name – a Child of God, a Daughter of the King, and Heirs with Jesus Christ. He gives us power to be the you that was intended. The you that is dependent on strength from God. 

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:7

Being yourself then is the Key to Happiness.

You are the only YOU the world has.  Be. YOU!
