It’s hard to love yourself every day – even the most confident people feel down on themselves sometimes. But there are ways to get rid of that mean little voice in your head and remember how amazing you are. Here’s how to get back to loving yourself.
1. Remember to live in the present. Living in the past and the future leads to regretting over something you can’t do anything about, or obsessing over about something that hasn’t happened yet. Bring awareness to the present moment and you will feel freedom from that self-hate.
2. On a similar note, get friendly with the demons of your past. Accepting your past and loving yourself even through your mistakes is one of the most powerful things you can do. See your past self as a friend who made a mistake and deserves compassion and forgiveness.
3. Read about heroes or people that inspire you. Everyone is human and flawed that includes your favorite role models and people that might seem perfect, like Gandhi or Marilyn Monroe. This may help you forgive your own missteps.
4. Use positive self-talk and mantras. It’s easy to have a little voice within which is highly critical and judgmental, comparing our lives to unattainable ones. Tell yourself, “I am beautiful, I am strong, I am smart” in the mirror every day.
