The Greatest Love Of All

Just as the song goes, “Learning to love your self is the greatest gift of all.”

Love yourself gives you inner peace.

Stop worrying about other people’s opinions.

Be happy with yourself and enjoy life for the beauty that it is.

You only get to live once. Would you want to waste your life constantly measuring up with what other people think? Would you want to always feel inadequate? Think of the many wonderful opportunities that you may have missed because you feel you are not good enough. Pick up the pieces and start focusing on being the best person that you can be. Instead of thinking about life’s what-ifs, focus on the many possibilities that are now waiting to be discovered.

Start with small steps. Break free from the monotony of your life so that you will always have something to look forward to when you wake up each morning.

Self-help gurus advise to save a special day for your self each week. On that day, do activities that you really like best. This can be done on a weekend. My friend considers Sundays as her sabbatical wherein she stays in bed the whole day browsing through picture albums and books. Through this weekly activity, she discovered her passion for photography. Try this simple activity and have the chance to get to know yourself better.

Once you have gotten used to the “real and improved you,” you will be surprised to learn that the right people will be naturally drawn to you. You will discover that all you really need is a genuine smile and a friendly attitude. You need not give in to their every whim or keep complimenting them to win them over. People will like you for who and what you really are. You need not try so hard; because in the end, what matters most is that you really like yourself.
