How To Love Yourself Better

Slow down when you’re happy. Forget about the rush of society’s deadlines. Focus on what you want instead. Practice trusting your own choices. Take accountability for those decisions, even when they don’t go the way you hoped they would. Learn from your mistakes. Remember when you got it right, too. Protect your energy. Stop trying to impress people you don’t even like. Ask for help. Keep learning. Keep hoping. Keep both feet on the ground. Stay close to those who feel like home. Let go of anyone who makes you question your worth. Be vulnerable. Be fair. Be open. Live according to your own values and build a life that feels like yours. Take care of your mind. Nourish your body. Feed your soul. Chase your joy. Heal. Embrace solitude. Stop apologizing for taking up space. Say what you need to say. Feel what you need to feel. Stop expecting yourself to be perfect. Allow yourself to be human. Look around you. Celebrate the little wins. Accept the downfalls with as much grace as you can muster. Forgive yourself when you fall short. Try again. Try again. Try again. Never stop trying.
