Self-love is important because it’s the key to removing the barriers of fear and separation between us, as humans. Why is removing barriers of fear and separation important? Well, because being alone or feeling lonely can be scary. Feeling like you’re not “included” or that you don’t fit in can also be scary. Fear can lead to isolation, which may lead to depression and feelings of jealousy or bitterness.
We all want to feel like we are part of something larger. We may have differing levels of comfort socially (e.g. extroverts vs. introverts), but I think overall, we all desire to feel supported and loved. Is it possible to find love and support outside of yourself? Of course, it is. But what if you didn’t have to go outside of yourself for that same love and support?
This is where self-love comes in. Self-care is the highest form of self-love. As stated above, people need to tell themselves that they are a part of the whole of God, of Source, whatever you wish to call it. You can’t deny your own divine nature without denying it for everyone else. In a way, hating yourself is more selfish than loving yourself, just the opposite of what you’d think.
Self-love is selfless. When you love yourself, it’s easier to love others which in turn causes any feelings of separation or fear to fade. When that love blooms into confidence, self-esteem, and universal love, it becomes the key to our happiness on Earth.
