Practicing self love can be very hard when you put others’ needs before yourself. Self-love is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth. Self love to me means taking care of your own needs and not sacrificing your well-being to please others. Self love can mean something different for each individual because we all have different ways to take care of ourselves. I’ve read three articles about self- love. The first article is about different ways to practice self love and to be good to yourself. The second article talks about the importance of self love and the third article talks about how to practice self love when you have a low self esteem. The first article listed different ways to practice self love. A few caught my attention but I only chose three to describe in my PowerPoint. I do want to talk about one of them, which is finding your happy place. I already do this, for example if im not having a good day I would just find a positive place where I can think to myself and think positive. My happy place is my balcony because I can enjoy the weather from high up and allow myself to be present in the moment. This is how I practice self love but other people may cope with practicing self love differently. The importance of self love is accepting your emotions for what they are and putting your social well being first. When you practice self love you become more confident and accepting of yourself. Accepting who you are may be difficult if you don’t admit your mistakes or own your outcomes, etc. “The importance of self love” by Zubayer Khan Zakir talks about self love and it’s benefits,etc. In this article the author says,” we all like to spread love, but the question is — do we produce enough for ourselves?” I like this quote because this is a question I need to ask myself, I just honestly don’t know how to go about it. In my opinion I feel I don’t produce enough love for myself because as I said before I like putting other people I care about before myself.
