You Are A Wild and Beautiful Thing, It’s About Time You Started Loving Yourself

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” -Buddha

Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain, it makes you indestructible. We often forget how important it is to take a break from the world and ask ourselves what we want. We are students, fraternity and sorority members, classmates, lovers, and friends. But who are you to yourself? If you can’t say the best relationship you have is the one with the person in the mirror, it’s time to take a journey on the path to inner peace.

Loving ourselves is having a deep appreciation for who we are. It’s accepting our imperfections and flaws. It’s understanding that we are in charge of our lives and we can’t really be successful until we have mastered our relationships within our own heart.

This isn’t something easy, but it’s also not impossible. It’s something that takes time. It’s understanding how to put your needs first before you can genuinely give love to others. It’s giving yourself not only what you want, but what you deserve. It’s walking away from something or someone that doesn’t add to your life anymore. It’s forgiving those who have hurt you and remembering there are beginnings in endings.

Find little moments throughout your day where your objective is to just be. Shut your phone off and pick up a book. Disconnect from the the world around you and just breathe. Become in touch with your own mind and open your heart to the world around you. It’s incredible what will come your way once you realize you are truly unstoppable.

It’s finding the little moments in life and making them beautiful. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
