4 Ways to Love Yourself More (Part 4)


This is the last tip in a 4-part series that will assist you in loving your beautiful self even more.

I have found that when I am finding it hard to love myself, it helps me to focus on someone else’s problems. I never have to look long to find someone who is more needy than I am.

Wellness Tip #4: Love Someone Else.

Every time I walk into the room with a patient, I say a prayer of thanks for what I have. For my blessings.

Being grateful is a precursor for spreading love. From me to another.

How amazing your heart feels when you show love to another! Your problems lessen. Your “Rise and Whine” turns into a “Rise and Shine.”

The caveat is that you have to first love yourself enough. Enough so that you’re not still at the stage where you need to dispense a quick put-down for a needed put-up. Enough so that you’re able to give away some of your self-love to soothe another’s pain.

As you relish in your beauty and loving-kindness, you are freer to help others to see their intrinsic beauty. And, the miracle of loving someone else is that when you give love away, it always returns to you ten-fold.

The Experiment: The sky’s the limit here! This week, consciously consider ways that you can demonstrate more love to another earthly creature. You might want to volunteer for a couple of hours weekly at your place of worship, local soup kitchen, animal or homeless shelter. Your act of love could be as simple as phoning or emailing a friend or family member in need. The key is: don’t delay. Loving deeds are truly what makes the world go round!

Wellness Tip #4: Love Someone Else.

Silence Your Inner Critic: You may think that you don’t have the time or patience to love others deeply. Don’t shortchange yourself. You can love more kindly, compassionately and fully with a little practice. And the loving time you spend with others will be multiplied back to you.
