Truly loving yourself from self-acceptance and self-awareness is something no-one else can do.   And one helpful step toward getting to that point of self-acceptance is recognising what you already have that’s great by writing a “What’s Working for Me” list. Once you see it on paper and accept all of the positivity in your life, it will make it that much easier to love yourself.

5. Create a List of Affirmations to Read to Yourself

Go online for inspiration if you need it, but having a list of personalised, go-to positive phrases to say in times of frustration or overwhelm can be like having your own cheerleader in your pocket at all times.  This is something I have used may times over.  Min are in a little jar next to my bed and I pull one out and read it anytime I feel the need to be reminded I have love within me.
