Loving Yourself Unconditionally

Most faiths teach us selflessness and to ‘enjoy your neighbour like yourself’.
Have you ever questioned, whether your next-door neighbour would really like that?
Since, honestly speaking, just how much do YOU like yourself?
Of course we all enjoy ourselves. Easy! We love ourselves in those times when things go well, when we do the right things, when we act with dignity, when we are likeable and can feel happy with ourselves.
However what about the other times? When you make a fool out of yourself? When you imitate a moron? When you fail or, even worse, behave in an ugly method? When you feel embarrassed and foolish and not proud of yourself one bit?
Do you still like yourself then? Or do you abandon yourself in pity and regret?
To put it simply: Is your love for your self conditional or genuine?
It’s a crucial question. It’s the concern that makes all the difference in your life!
YOU! Basically you are great. Your inner core, that which is you, is magnificent.
And chances are that you attempt your absolute best to express that and you attempt to live up to your divine potential (you probably would not be reading this otherwise).
Possibilities likewise are, that you are not 100 % effective in living up to your divine capacity.
And possibilities are, that this is exactly when you frequently desert yourself and stop enjoying yourself.
How does that feel, when you stop enjoying your self?
Picture a kid, innocent, vulnerable, open. And that little child has a buddy. A big one, larger and more powerful and far more powerful than the kid itself. And the kid enjoys and trusts that big good friend absolutely.
However each time the kid does something wrong, possibly something it does not even know is wrong, the huge buddy just goes and abandons the little kid. Just does not like it anymore.
The kid would probably just stand there, alone and absolutely baffled and hurt and it’s self esteem would be totally weakened.
And because the child trusts and loves the huge good friend, and because the big good friend appears so much more powerful than the kid, eventually the child would agree the huge good friend and abandon itself.
Does that sound familiar to you? Is that what took place to you as a kid? Then the opportunities are, that you are still doing exactly this: deserting yourself and stop loving yourself each time you do wrong. And perhaps even when you do not do anything wrong, because by now your self-confidence has suffered so much, that you simply in general do not trust your self any more
Having actually grown up you are now both: The child and the huge friend. And as that kid you should have unconditional love. You constantly have and you constantly will. It is the single essential thing you require to grow, become gorgeous and flower into your complete magnificent self. And the someone who needs to give you that unconditional love is YOU.
How is change possible, how can you be satisfied, when the extremely closest buddy you have, YOU, ignores you. And if YOU do not take care of that frightened, deserted kid in you, who else will?
Now I’m not saying you are constantly pleasant. That’s conditional. You may be a real shit in some cases. Then you may not be pleasant.
But you are always lovable. Unconditionally.
You might likewise not constantly find it simple to enjoy yourself. And you may ever so often entirely forget to enjoy yourself.
However the something you can choose today, is to be going to constantly enjoy yourself unconditionally.
If you decide that, then whenever you recognize you are abandoning yourself, you can return to caring yourself.
It does not indicate you authorize of whatever you do. In reality, loving yourself unconditionally is what offers you the possibility to your acts due to the fact that you no longer requirement to identify with your acts. That makes it the most effective tool to help you take responsibility for your mistakes and change.
So if there is SOMETHING you wish to do for your self: Make a pact with yourself. Make a mindful choice: To be willing to constantly like yourself unconditionally. That suffices to alter your life.
