' The greatest love of all' by Whitney Houston is one of my favorite song, I listen to this song almost everyday. Sometimes life is full of challenges, obstacles, haters, fake friends etc, all of these can make your social life difficult especially if you have a weak spirit. All you need to keep going is just a little inspiration, an inspiration which comes from within and that's loving yourself or self love.
“Don't doubt yourself, that's what haters are for.” ― Turcois Ominek
Chorus of the song, "greatest love of all"
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignit
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all.
“Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn't have the time to sit around and talk about you. What's important to me is not others' opinions of me, but what's important to me is my opinion of myself.”
― C. JoyBell C.
Loving yourself means accepting who you are, know your strengths and weakness, focus on your strength and use them as stepping stones to achieve what you want. No body was born as mr/miss Perfect, work on your weakness, and do yourself a favor don't pull yourself down saying a I'm a looser, I'm not lucky, I'm not good enough. Don't let anybody or yourself make you feel inferior, people may judge you and say whatever they want, if you allow them you will become a victim. Act and speak positively about yourself, When you love yourself, you will believe in you and you will know that you deserve better.
Loving yourself goes together with self respect, being nice to yourself is not a sin. The first priority
should be yourself, pay attention to your own needs first before paying attention to others. Respect yourself by taking full responsibility of each and every thing concerning you, then other people will respect and care for you.
If you hate yourself because of different reasons, may be you don't like your body image, your status, your income,etc. Don't blame God because He didn't give you a good nose, don't blame that bitch for making a mess in your marriage, etc. Don't play a victim conquer your fears. Loving yourself is the action you must take and the decision you must make right now, because loving yourself will give you confidence to do what you enjoy and stand on your two feet and show the world what you have.
“When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn't healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits - anything that kept me small.
My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.”
― Kim McMillen,
