I am so tired of hearing that women “need to love themselves more”.
Stop judging our level of self love as some sort of barometer for success, love-ability or worthiness as a woman.
Of course, we have moments when we may hate the way our butt looks, wish we had had that witty repartee or knew how to fold napkins in the form of cranes to astound our dinner guests, but assuming that we hate ourselves is so tiring.
It sets up the assumption that we can NOT receive love until we have some sort of overflowing bucket of self-love to validate it first.
For Love is our nature…
We can’t ever NOT be connected to love, for love is our internal nature (Essence, Spirit, Soul, Atman).
It’s who we are + is the basis of the Universe we live in. All else is false.
WE ARE LOVE. It’s that simple.
So, rather than assuming we don’t love themselves, let’s consider, “What’s blocking this internal nature instead?”
One thing could be the very belief that we DON’T love ourselves, along with all the other stories of unworthiness we have ALL accepted at some level.
It is OK to have moments of self-doubt and maybe even self loathing as we mix it up in life, but don’t let anyone tell you to love yourself more.
They may mean well but really this is a huge projection of judgment + criticism.
It sets us up for more self loathing too.
We are a failure who can’t even love herself!
How will we ever love anyone else?
Or how will they ever love us? We are total failures!
So how do we create more love for ourselves + in our lives?
Give love away like the sun gives away light – with no agenda, no attachment, no worries.
Many times we love with a hidden “need” – we want our lover or friends to reflect our own value back at us and this is impossible (not to mention extremely dangerous as we tread into the waters of co-dependency + disempowerment.)
So we are told we need to love ourselves first in order for another to see that we are worthy of loving.
But love is not a commodity…It is a river and it is ALWAYS flowing to you, beautiful woman.
So today when you have that moment of self-doubt, self-hate, self-loathing, notice that + look for someone or something + flow love to THEM. Feel gratitude. See beauty. Feel the loveliness of loving.
And know your true state as one of love…
Big love to you,
