Building Confidence: Loving The Person In The Mirror

Image“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” – Lucille Ball

Loving oneself is not loving only some part of yourself. Loving you is loving all of who you are. Loving yourself and confidence go hand-in-hand. So, if your ultimate goal is to find someone to love you, you maybe setting yourself up for disappointment if you don’t first love yourself. Being yourself plays a fundamental role on your journey to being confident. It was Emma Watson who said, “It sounds like a cliche but I also learnt that you’re not going to fall for the right person until you really love yourself and feel good about how you are.” It all begins with you. It is after you find love within yourself that you will be able to find it in another person.

What happens is that when you love who you are it encompasses your strengths and weaknesses. You know that everything will not work in your favor at all times. It is of that awareness that you no longer feel the need to beat on yourself with emotions that are not of a positive nature. Loving who you are is not going overboard and being a narcissist either. You want to keep it at a normal level, but feel free to love your mind, thoughts, body, life and the God power within you. It was Bruce Lee who said, “Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.” Remember, you have a mind, so think! You have your own thoughts and if you don’t like them, you can always change them! You have a body, love it! You have life, so live it! You have God power within you, it is time to explore it! You are uniquely made and there is none other like you and to truly love yourself is accepting who God has made you to be.  Loving the person in the mirror is the hallmark of building self-confidence!

Being yourself is FREEDOM!
