To be loved, feel loved, and understand love, love must be given to the self. Loving yourself provides self-confidence and self-worth. A feeling of positivity, happiness, and overall wellness happens when individuals embrace the love of self.
When individuals accept their emotions for what they are, it motivates them to make healthy choices in life. When self is held in high esteem, you're more likely to choose things that nurture your well-being and serve you well.
Confidence comes from within, and this is discovered when you genuinely love yourself. No one can make you feel good or happy as you can. When you have confidence, there is less pressure to do things just to be liked or to please others, and caring less about the opinions of others gives freedom to be authentic and genuine and to walk the journey designed by self.
