self love
By Keen Editorial Staff

While it’s easier said than done, you have to love yourself before loving others. It all comes down to the law of attraction. When it comes to attracting the right match, like attracts like — but you have to ditch doubt because negative energy will prevent you from finding the partner you desire. The most important thing to remember is that you need to learn to love yourself before loving someone else. If you don’t believe in yourself, why should someone else? This theory goes hand-in-hand with not waiting to find love to start living your best life. There are actually energy vibrations between people, so if you’re lazy and uninspired by everything, that’s the type of person you’ll meet. Here’s how to start loving yourself, so you’re one step closer to finding the partner you deserve. 

1. Learn to Accept, Value, and Love Yourself 

It’s all too easy to point out your weaknesses over celebrating your strengths but breaking this vicious cycle is one of the keys to loving yourself. Accept your faults (we all have them) and focus on the qualities you’re proud of. Also, why wait for someone else to pay you a compliment? Practice seeing yourself through the eyes of your higher self instead of a tragic soul who feels sorry for themselves — that will only cause you to become needy in a relationship. When you look at yourself with love, you’ll learn how to value yourself. Therefore, you’ll have more love to give a partner. 

2. Learn to Connect With Your Inner-Resource of Love, Wisdom, and Strength 

It’s essential to take responsibility for your feelings not to put a strain on a future partner. This exercise can also help you learn more about yourself. In other words, it can shed light on what makes you “tick.” Just be sure to leave your ego at the door. It’s different for everyone in terms of the process, so find what works for you, whether that’s a spiritual connection or a religious one. 

3. Abandon Your Fear of Rejection 

When you love yourself, you’re more apt to handle rejection better because you have the self-confidence to move on. Once you define your own worth, it’s like a shield against negative, unloving behavior. When you don’t fear rejection, it’s easier to dodge behaviors such as anger, low self-esteem, blaming, etc.

4. Banish Your Fear of Engulfment  

Losing yourself in a relationship is dangerous as it can destroy your self-esteem and self-worth. When you love yourself, you’re in the driver’s seat, so you can eliminate the fear that you won’t be as strong single as you would be with a partner.  

5. Learn to Be Happy Before You Are In a Relationship 

Loving yourself in a relationship requires happiness, so what better way to be happy than to do things that bring you joy. No matter how busy life gets, make time for hobbies, quality time with loved ones, travel, and self-care. As aforementioned, like attracts like, and who wouldn’t want an equally high-spirited person in their lives?
