It's often easier to love other people more then yourself. Don't you agree?
Why can't we love ourselves more? I think its because we are too harsh with ourselves. We tell ourselves we aren't good enough or pretty enough, but of course we wouldn't tell that to anyone else.
As Uchtdorf says, "STOP IT."
I've always had a strong feeling about one thing:
The world may portray it different but the world is wrong, because beauty will never be based on your physical appearance. God loves you just the way you are. He doesn't love/not love you because you are pretty or ugly. Your heart determines your true beauty.
Love YOU right now.
Because you are perfect the way you are. You are beautiful. You are loved. You are special. You are important. You are absolutely wonderful just the way you are. You have a beautiful heart. You are caring. You are unique. You are happy. You are strong. You are smart. You are inspiring. You are perfect.
Your probably thinking, "But it is SO hard for me to love myself." Pray for help. Its not easy to love, especially yourself. He will help you love yourself. Because He wants want is best for you. He wants to help you grow and become stronger. He wants YOU to be happy with you. He wants to help you gain and understand your individual worth. He wants to be happy in your own skin.
Loving yourself is so important for so many reasons. So do it. This month work on becoming less harsh with yourself & learn to love YOU. When you look in the mirror say at least 3 positive things to yourself, and mean it. If you can't find anything to say to your self that is positive then say , "I am beautiful." and mean it. Because the more you say it and believe it, you will learn to love yourself. And when you do- your world will change.
