The precept love others as you love yourself is universal. But what about the inverse? Why it’s important to love yourself as you love others.
Service at the highest level comes from taking care of your needs first. If you don’t fill yourself, you have nothing to give others.
In honoring the cracks, the Japanese art of Kintsugi teaches us the art of embraceing your broken places. This is the epitome of self-love.
We live by a set of hidden rules that govern our worthiness to receive love, compassion, and acceptance. Where did we learn these rules?
Our rational minds understand that worthiness is inherent in being. Unfortunately, our rational minds don’t run the show. We live and love by our rules.
The fear that we are not enough surfaces often because it’s true. You are not enough. Here’s why you need to stop shifting that belief and start embracing it.
Remembering this one fact about the heart reframed my entire approach to service and self-care.
