It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit.
Self-love is a word that's been popping up more and more thanks to holistic wellness personalities, organizations, and movements. Many people however, still don't know exactly what it is.
By my own definition, Self-love is the complete acceptance and appreciation of one's whole Self, meaning the physical (bones), mental (brain), and spiritual (being). It's a journey; something constantly in flux that transforms as we do. Self-love isn't some lush forest you happen to stumble into one time and stay forever. Well it is, but occasionally you'll wander a little too far, get lost, and have to find your way back.
We grow from babies into kids, adults, and then elders; physically, mentally, and spiritually. It's through each small step within these transformations that Self-love must be adjusted as we learn not just to accept the new parts of who we are, but to celebrate them.
