The most important gift you can give yourself is the gift of love. The love for yourself, for people, and for the world. And if you don’t love yourself, you will find it hard to accept yourself.

Love is acceptance. To love yourself unconditionally, you must accept yourself unconditionally. You must accept who you are. You must accept your mistakes. To really love yourself, you must be comfortable with yourself. You must put yourself first. Putting yourself first does not mean neglecting others. it is the opposite.

“Real love is a permanent self-enlarging experience.”

M.Scott Peck

When you love yourself, you cannot hate yourself. We don’t hate what we love. When you love yourself, it means you value yourself. It means you respect yourself. It is means you are enlarging yourself. Because love expands life. Hate reduces life. If you want to expand your life, if you want to grow your life, if you want to live well, if you want to be happy, give yourself the best gift: the gift of love.

“Enjoy the little things.”

Why You Cannot Depend On People To Change Your Life

“You cannot depend upon anybody.There is no guide, no teacher, no authority. There is only you- your relationships with others and the world- there is nothing else.”- Jiddu Krisnamurti

Why are you waiting for someone to change you when you have the power to change yourself? You have what it takes to change yourself. Don’t wait for people to do for you what you can do for yourself. If you wait, you are not being true to yourself.

“Change is not about cosmetic surgery; it is about soul surgery.”

Changing your life, yourself, is not about cosmetic surgery; it is about soul surgery. You cannot really change yourself if you don’t have the courage to change from the inside out. Change is internal, not external. Change starts with you.

“To live is to think and act, and to think and act is to change.”

James Allen

If want a real change, you must do it yourself. You must be honest with yourself. You must really commit yourself to changing what is not working for you. You know what is not working for you. No one can help you change yourself but you. It is in your hands.

Most people don’t like to change because they don’t want to upset their friends. If you don’t have the courage the face your change, change will face you. When change faces you, you will have no choice but to surrender. Change is letting go of what is hurting you. You will find it hard to change if you are not willing and ready to embrace change. Don’t be scared. Change is scary. But if you don’t change, if you don’t like change, how are you going to move from where you are now to where you want to be? Think about it.
