I’ve enjoyed lots of conversations around this topic recently.
What does loving yourself actually mean?
Does it feel too vast and wide for you to step into?
Do you think it’s all a bit too woo woo for your liking?
Don’t worry I feel the same (and I teach this stuff!!)
Acceptance was thrown out on the table.
Just accept yourself.
Easier said than done I replied.
Cos that would mean I would have to accept all the stuff I don’t like about myself.
I’m not sure if I’m ready to do that.
Accept that you are not ready to accept yourself?
(Hope you are keeping up here;) )
Accept that you don’t know where to start on loving yourself?
Accept that this is all just confusing mumbo jumbo? (I need to use this phase more often!!)
And instead of walking away from it all…..
Consider getting curious.
Look around you. Who in life looks like they accept themselves? Who is practicing self love and is rocking it out like a fucking rockstar?
Who talks about acceptance and self love with excitement and realness?
Go search for these people, devour everything they write, say, film.
Learn what you can.
Practice what you can on yourself.
Have fun with it.
Cos that’s what I’m doing.
Yours in acceptance (with a double dash of love) my friend.
