Hello Rever, this is Kitt
Many of us look at ourselves through a different kind of distorted mirror. We let other people in our lives--from parents and siblings to friends and coworkers--create a reflection of who we are, but it's rarely accurate. To truly love yourself, you need to know the truths that form the basis of a healthy self-image.
Accept yourself. Don't chase after other people's approval. Too much of what we do, say, buy or wear is motivated by our deep desire to be accepted by others. Your God accepts you unconditionally, and in His view you are precious and priceless. Focus on this and you will not waste any time and effort trying to be someone you're not.
Be True to yourself. Accept and enjoy your "shape,' and by that I'm talking about far more than the contours of your physical body--although you should rejoice in those too. To get to know yourself, make a list of your abilities and be as honest as you can. Ask friends for their input too. Then consider your heart--what you love to do--as well as the strengths and weaknesses of your personality. Don't deny your weaknesses; we all have a bundle of them. Be content with them.
Forgive yourself. Don't expect perfection, but be honest. When you honestly admit your errors and ask forgiveness most people will not hold a grudge. Practice such a forgiving attitude with yourself.
Believe in Yourself. Start affirming the truth about yourself! The truth is you were created with talents, abilities, personality and background in a combination that is uniquely you.
If you can learn do these things you will know what loving yourself is all about. I believe in you.
