1. A lack of self-love prevents you from advocating for your needs

  • Advocating for your own needs is an important part of self-care. But if you don't believe you're worthy, you won't see your needs as something worth sticking up for.
  • A lack of self-love can also cause you to be dependent on others around you in an unhealthy way.
  • Lack of self-love can also impede emotional healing and progress. If you've decided to see a therapist, improving your self-image helps increase the chances that you'll have a good outcome in psychotherapy.

2. Childhood experiences are imp to ur capacity for self-love

Your relationship with your parents affects the development of your character throughout your life.

  • If you had a troubled childhood where your physical, emotional, or mental needs weren't met, you may have issues with self-esteem and self-love as an adult.
  • Negative messages received in childhood—particularly recurring ones—often stick with you well into adulthood and color your self-perception.

3. Negative comments from others can impact your self-love

  • You can't practice self-love in a bubble. Sooner or later, you're going to run into someone who's going to make a rude or critical comment toward you. Instead of letting that send you down a negative spiral, try not to take the comment personally.
  • Show kindness for the person's feelings or concerns, rather than reacting to their tone.
  • Remind yourself that different people have different things going on in their lives. When someone makes a negative comment toward you, try not to take it personally.

Parents can support their children's self-esteem

Parents can support their children's self-esteem

  • If you have kids, do what you can now to help them build healthy self-esteem so that they'll love themselves as adults, even when they're facing challenges. Here are some things you can do
  • Praise your child's effort rather than focusing on results. For example, when your kid gets an A on a test, you might say, "I know you worked really hard on that, this shows how much you've learned!"
  • Show your child how to do something for themselves rather than doing it for them.
  • Focus on your child's strengths rather than their weaknesses and avoid harsh criticism.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
