Why is Self Love so important?
Here are 5 expert opinion on why self love is so important :
1. " Without self love, you drastically decrease your ability to be successful at anything" says Tamica Sears, Senior Human Resources Business Partner, USA Today | Certified Executive Coach, Sears Coaching.
Failed relationship, lack of money , ideas , lack of respect all stem from the reason of not loving yourself enough.
2. "Self-love allows you to fill in the gaps external sources of love may leave" says Kerrie Annie Brown, Licensed Mental Health Counselor | Founder, Healing with Wisdom
No one can feel your feelings the way you do. They can show compassion and concern but self love allows one to fill the gaps.
3. "I believe it is hard to love others well when you do not take the time to understand who you are and embrace your story" says Dr. Froswa’ Booker-Drew Author | Speaker | Trainer | Consultant, Soulstice Consultancy
So many relationships are unhealthy and unbalanced because individuals are seeking others to make them complete.
When you love yourself, you can bring that story with its good, bad, and ugly elements to the relationship without diminishing who you are but allowing others to do the same.
4. "No one is responsible for their own happiness but themselves" says Maria Leonard Olsen Civil Litigation Attorney | Show Host | Author
Too often we look for outside affirmations to determine our sense of worth. I am a recovering people-pleaser who constantly put the needs and wants of others before my own. It took me decades to learn how to love myself.
5."Self-love and alone time are essential to having a healthy relationship" says Rori Sassoon NYC’s Relationship Expert | Co-founder, Platinum Poire
When you already validate yourself, you don’t need other people to make you feel like you are good enough.What a disaster it is to walk around like you need someone else to complete you when you are whole, complete, and validated independently.
