5 Reasons Self-Love Is So, So Important

You're the only you

5 Reasons Self-Love Is So, So Important

We find ourselves constantly judging others and ourselves based on social media profiles or because we're jealous of what somebody else is doing. But if you learn to be yourself and love yourself, you'll find that you'll be judging less, accepting more, and living a life that you love. Here are five simple reasons you should learn to love yourself:

1. You'll be happier

While it may be a challenge at first, it's important to take small steps towards loving yourself. Whether it's making a vision board or hanging an inspiring quote above your bed, do something to remind you what you love about yourself. Once you learn to love yourself, you'll gain a sense of confidence that you didn't know you had. With this, you'll find yourself happier with yourself and with the life you're living.

2. Good things will come

When you're confident in yourself, it is more likely that people will want to be around you and learn from you. People inevitably flock to confident people because they believe that they know what they're doing. Having confidence in yourself will lead you to be more outgoing which will create so many new opportunities for you. Sometimes it involves taking a risk, but the risk will be worth it.

3. You'll find the right people

When you send out positive vibes, you'll attract other positive people. If your lack of self love comes from being put down by the people around you, then they're not your real friends. Find the people that love and support you no matter what, the people that will pick you up when you're down, and the people that remind you why they love you for being you.

4. You'll spend less time on social media and more time on adventures

With our modern technology, people spend so much time sitting on their phones absorbed in a virtual reality. They judge themselves and other based off social media profiles. When you learn to love yourself, you'll spend less time one social media wishing you looked like that guy or were on adventure like that girl. You'll create a life that you love so much that you won't care what others are doing because you're happy with your own life.

5. There is no other you

The most important reason to love yourself is that there is no other you. You're a unique individual. Everyone faces their own struggles and nobody's life is perfect no matter how it may appear in the media. Making the most of your own life will help you feel proud of who you are and what you're doing. So be you, because you're the only you.

Finding out who you are is important. Loving yourself along your journey is just as important as loving who you become. You'll face so many experiences, some that may really change who you are. It may be hard to always find something to be confident about, but it's important to remind yourself that everything happens for a reason and once you love yourself you'll find it much easier to love others.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
