We, humans, are born with our own uniqueness. Some of us have the abilities to do certain things while some others do not. Even though some of us are happy with what we have, others are not. They feel like they are lacking certain abilities and qualities that they want to possess or have but they can not. Instead of being grateful of what they have, they end up being overly anxious and having depressing thoughts.
There are a few reasons why you should start loving yourself. Loving yourself is important because the simple truth is that you can not take care of others if you can not take care of yourself. When you already love yourself, it gives you the opportunity to move through the world deeper with deeper compassions for the others.
Furthermore, loving yourself will also make your life easier. If you love yourself, you will be easier on yourself and easier to let things go, rather than mulling over them because you do not take things seriously.
Lastly, loving yourself allows you to have a better confidence. Confidence starts when a person starts to be confident about themselves. Being confident does not mean that you always have to be confident in every situation, as you can not always be capable of everything that you do. You just need to have a basic confidence in yourself, trying your best in every situation.
On the other hand, people who have the abilities that may excel the others, should not brag or take them for granted. They should extend their hands to those who need it and use it for the better good.
We humans only have one life, make it a beautiful one. You should embrace what you are given and start loving yourself from this day forward!
