How To Love Yourself

Stop All Criticism – Criticism never changes a thing. Refuse to
criticize yourself. Accept yourself exactly as you are. Everybody
changes. When you criticize yourself, your changes are negative. When
you approve of yourself, your changes are positive.

Don’t Scare Yourself – Stop terrorizing yourself with your thoughts.
It’s a dreadful way to live. Find a mental image that gives you
pleasure (mine is yellow roses), and immediately switch your scary
thought to a pleasure thought.

Be Gentle And Kind And Patient – Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to
yourself. Be patient with yourself as you learn the new ways of
thinking. Treat yourself as you would someone you really loved.

Be Kind To Your Mind – Self hatred is only hating your own thoughts.
Don’t hate yourself for having the thoughts. Gently change your thoughts.

Praise Yourself – Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise
builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how
well you are doing with every little thing.

Support Yourself – Find ways to support yourself. Reach out to friends
and allow them to help you. It is being strong to ask for help when
you need it.

Be Loving To Your Negatives – Acknowledge that you created them to
fulfill a need. Now, you are finding new, positive ways to fulfill
those needs. So, lovingly release the old negative patterns.

Take Care Of Your Body – Learn about nutrition. What kind of fuel does
your body need to have optimum energy and vitality? Learn about
exercise. What kind of exercise can you enjoy? Cherish and revere the
temple you live in.

Mirror Work – Look into your eyes often. Express this growing sense of
love you have for yourself. Forgive yourself looking into the mirror.
Talk to your parents looking into the mirror. Forgive them too. At
least once a day say: "I love you, I really love you."

Love Yourself .. Do It Now – Don’t wait until you get well, or lose
the weight, or get the new job, or the new relationship. Begin now —
and do the best you can.
~ Louise L. Hay Educational Institute

If you put a small value upon yourself, rest assured that the world
will not raise your price.
