Knowing how to love yourself is extremely important. Self love is at the very core of wellbeing, joy, self-empowerment, and your ability to create and enjoy the kind of life you want. You cannot enjoy happiness if you are not at peace with yourself. Your relationship with yourself is the most important one you’ll ever have.
From the spiritual perspective, it is by turning your attention inward to yourself that you are able to experience your connection with Life, with God, with All That Is.From the human perspective, every relationship you ever have with someone else exactly mirrors one or more aspects of the relationship you have with yourself. Until you know how to love yourself there will be an inner war going on that divides your energy and sabotages your efforts to move toward happiness.
Besides that, if you lack your own love, you attract people and circumstances that mirror your negative beliefs and feelings about yourself. We draw to us the manifestations of what we FEEL. So, in order for you to draw in loving people and circumstances, you need to know how to love yourself first. This is what they mean by the law of attraction.
“You can search throughout the universe for someone who is more deserving of you love and affection that you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” Siddhartha Guatama Buddha
