Self-love is a very basic principle but yet there are so many people who do not practice or feel it. You were put on this earth for a reason, even though there may be many different beliefs regarding that concept, you are you, and that's all you've got.
You only have one life with only one body - the body that you have, the brain that you have, the smile that only you have. When you look in the mirror you will see what you are but not exactly who you are. Focus on who you are and loving the person that you give to the world, then focus on what you see. You need to love the inner being of yourself first before you can even start to focus on the outside.
Everyone is so different in so many ways. You are one of a kind. You are unique. Yes, society may not approve of your uniqueness, but who really cares?
Give society a hair flip and move on honey because life is too short to care what others think.
In order to have self-love, you must be confident. You must be confident in yourself and your ability to do anything you set your mind to. The world and the people in it are beautiful and we have so many resources to do whatever we put our minds to. The only thing stopping you in life is you.
Don't talk yourself out of things and don't have self-doubt. There are times when life throws things at us, but that is when self-love should kick in and be the strongest. If you love yourself, you will always get back up from any downfall that life throws at you.
Today, tomorrow and next year you will still be you. As long as you are you, that will always be enough.
