Nietzsche About You

“The individual has always had to struggle

to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.

If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened.

But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Say “I Love You” … to Yourself

How many times have you looked in the mirror and said “I love you”, thereby truly feeling the love towards yourself?

We are taught to say these three magic words to everyone else, but not to ourselves. Why is that?

You are the only person, who is with you from birth to the final second you reside on this planet/ dimension. Do you not deserve love from yourself?

Of course you do!

So let’s change the habit of always saying these words to everyone else, but not to ourselves.

Let’s also stop comparing love towards ourselves with narcissism, egotism and selfishness. Loving ourselves does not mean that we therewith disregard others. It does not mean that we stop loving others. Narcissism, egotism and selfishness are entirely different phenomenons that arise from feelings of lack. Love comes from a place of unconditional respect and acceptance. Love is infinite, boundless and eternal.

Starting today, begin the process of taking the time to look in the mirror and say “I love you”. Don’t just say it, really feel love towards yourself while saying those three little words.

Keep repeating this process until you feel that you really mean it. Then repeat the process just because you do love yourself. 🙂

PS! You deserve your love! Always have, always will!
