Self Love Manifesto!

We tend to be hard on ourselves. Not taking enough care of our being physically, emotionally and spiritually. Especially when we find ourselves messing up or that we’ve made a mistake. We are even more likely to be harder on ourselves than we are on a friend or loved one. In all honesty, we all have some work to do to actively and genuinely exercise self compassion. It is essential that our own well being and happiness is not neglected. Sometimes we get so caught up in the hustle of life, where our career, family, friends, entertainment and media takes centre stage that we completely neglect one of the most important aspects in life which is taking care of us first. I am aware that many of us may believe that taking care of ourselves first is being selfish. However, look at it from this point of view, if we don’t take care of us first how will we be able to give of our best self to others. Think of when we’re flying, we are usually advised in case of an emergency to put on our oxygen mask first before we start helping any one else. It is the same principle in life.  Place your oxygen mask of self care and self love on first before you can give of yourself to others or try to help someone else. A quote by Katie Reed puts it like this, ‘self care means giving the world the best of you instead of what’s left of you.’ Taking care of yourself first shows how much we really care for our loved ones and the individuals who we influence by ensuring that we are able to give them our best self. The most effective way to creating our best self is through self love. It’s only in our strength that we can genuinely and effectively assist others. While we ought to be there for others it is important to note that we never leave ourselves behind. Carry yourself while you carry others. Below I have included some important tips on self love. Remember real change begins when we give ourselves the best love!
