You know that person everyone falls in love with the second he or she walks into a room? He or she doesn’t necessarily have to be gorgeous, or start throwing cash around the room. No, this person just has “something” that draws others in. And you’d give your right arm to know what it is that is so super awesome about that person. She isn’t necessarily even charming or charismatic; she just seems to radiate something that is magnetic.
I’ll save you the endless nights awake trying to figure out what it is.
Truth: That person loves herself. The end.
Confidence is about believing in yourself. Self-esteem is about believing in your worth.
Self-love is both of those wrapped up into one, plus more. It’s like the perfect feast for your soul.
And at the same time, self-love can be this mysterious, elusive thing. Ask a woman what her menstrual cycle is like or how she takes her coffee and she can tell you in great detail. But ask her about self-love and you’ll probably get a blank stare.
If you’re not sure whether you love yourself, here’s a quick quiz:
Do you think you’re awesome?
Do you love yourself unconditionally? (In other words, do you put conditions on your self-love such as your weight, salary, relationship status, etc.?)
Do you go after your goals while deep down knowing you are worthy of attaining them?
If you answered “no” to any or all of these questions, we’ve got some work to do, sister!
