How to practice self-love?
1. Which of my needs has not been met?
There have been probably many situations in which you needed something, but you didn’t get it. Your inner child didn’t feel supported and nurtured. If you don’t satisfy your needs now, then a part of you that acts from the position of this little inner child. Find out what you need and why you think you need it.
2. What is the best choice for me?
If you would decide each time what the best choice for you is, then you would naturally choose the self-loving action. The problem arises when we act against ourselves, and we add to more pain to our already hurt part. This simple question alone will help you to love yourself because you will be there for your inner child. Try it just for one day, and you will see the difference. Take others and their expectations out of the equation for a while and choose only for yourself.
