2. Acknowledge your weaknesses
All of us are unique and have certain strengths and weaknesses. That is what makes us human. Accepting your flaws and weaknesses will not only help you work on improving your shortcomings, it will also boost your self-esteem and sense of self.
3. Identify your strengths
You should write down personality traits and characteristics that you love about yourself and focus more on them. This will help you stop the cycle of craving love. Knowing your positive attributes will enable you to value yourself and help you understand what you bring to a relationship.
4. Make yourself a priority
Your loved ones may be important to you, but that doesn’t mean you will ignore yourself. Instead of trying to please everyone, start by pleasing yourself. Focus on “you” and your own needs first and foremost. Unless you are happy yourself, you can never make others happy. Unless you love yourself, you can never love anyone else. Make yourself your top priority. It’s not about being selfish, it’s about giving yourself the value you deserve.
