Subhanallah, so many of us suffer from low selfesteem. We don’t know how to accept compliments. We feel negatively about ourselves most of the time. We focus on our past mistakes and can’t think positively about ourselves. We never feel like we’re good enough. We don’t know how to love ourselves.
First of all, loving yourself doesn’t mean that you have to be proud or arrogant about yourself and your accomplishments. Just remind yourself of your individuality and the fact that God made you the way He did for a reason. Your height, colour, weight, race, tribe and the likes are all made for a reason.
We all make mistakes and none of us are perfect. It’s important to learn from our mistakes, but we should also not dwell on them. Learn to forgive yourself and move on. It’s only when you forgive yourself that you’re able to move on and enjoy your life.
Learning how to love yourself is not difficult. It’s something that all of us need to work on, especially those of us who suffer from low self-esteem. it’s so easy to fall into a trap of negative thinking and criticism of ourselves. It can make us feel miserable and unhappy all the time.
We often can’t change things around us in our external environment, but we can certainly work on improving our internal environment! This all starts with taking care of yourself and thinking good things about yourself. Each and every one of us is special; we were created by the Almighty Allah, so how could we not be? So learn how to love yourself; you’re amazing.
Lastly, I said you should love yourself but don’t forget to love others too. Don’t be selfish.
