Love yourself: You are unique

For a long time now, it has occurred to me that many of us don't love nor value ourselves. When did we get into this bubble of no longer feeling as though we are valued enough to love ourself.  As a generation many of us young people have hundreds of insecurities, which has been brought on by the media.
 Remember when we was young?  What happened to that curious little girl and the inquisitive little boy who enjoyed playing with the invisible friend, running around outside having adventures and climbing trees. As we have got older we have forgotten our inner child and the things we used to love the most, our imagination which in turn was ourselves. 

It is very healthy to be alone and enjoy the company of silence and our own thoughts. I never used to be keen on being alone and it has taken me a very long time to embrace the fact that no-one knows me like I do and I am therefore,my own best-friend. 
A few things that has helped me along the way is the smaller things that we tend to forget:

1. Being too critical 
As human beings we constantly criticise ourselves and compare our journey to other peoples accomplishments or achievements. We need to break out of this and remember that everyone has their own story, their own journey and with that their own struggles and triumphs. 

2. With all the bad there is always good.
When people feel as though only bad things are happening to them there is always something good that can be taken out of the bad. When I would pick at myself for how I looked, I had to learn that
surely there is something I like about myself and this helped me to come to terms with who I am.
''Stop hating yourself for everything you aren't and love yourself for everything you are''

3. Always make time for you
Do the things you love, they are what makes you who you are. 

We need to learn to love ourself and enjoy what we have. You are unique and noone can tell you different, what would you say to your younger self if they was feeling how you do now? You are wonderful, and if you don't believe it please believe I do!

  1. I have so much time for this post, its lovely. You're right, we don't value or love ourselves as much as we should. We are all constantly putting ourselves down and comparing ourselves to others when we are all unique and special in individual ways. :)
