Self love

By N. Cardoso 02/15/19

‘May I be happy. May I be safe. May I be at peace. May I be healthy.’

These were the main topics of my meditation today.
It was about self love, self respect, self acceptance, self compassion.

Many of us have been taught that caring and loving ourselves is selfish…. I dare to disagree.

Loving self above everything else and at the sacrifice of others now, that is being selfish.

Loving self in a healthy and balanced way, like everything else in life, is healthy and essential to live a fulfilling life.

Self love, kindness and respect are the cornerstone of being able to honesty love and care for others. It is impossible to truly and meaninfully give to others what we don’t know what it mean.

So, try and exercise everyday to be kind to yourself, to give and allow yourself to be forgiven, to be loved, to be accepted.

I am not better than others overall, but for sure I am not worst than others either. I am usually just less kind, less compassionate, less forgiving towards myself.
