How to Love Yourself More (Even When Others DON’T)

How to Love Yourself More (Even When Others DON’T)

Most people not only don’t possess unconditional love, but they’re also caught up in an Underworld of fear and pain. This fear and pain are sourced from the illusion that they are separate from life – that they are humans having a life experience, rather than Life having a human experience.

Once you realize that people are scared and in pain, it takes out the sting from their disapproving stares and mistreatment of you. Once this realization hits you, you stop reacting to their negativity and start feeling compassion for them – and it is this precise compassion that befuddles them and sometimes is enough to motivate them to try the same path.

3. Realize that how other people treat you is a reflection of how they treat themselves.

It hurts to be the only one in your social circle trying to take responsibility for your life. It hurts to be rejected by your friends, family, or both because you are taking a different path. Learning how to love yourself more undeniably HURTS BADLY sometimes, and other times it feels blissful and wondrous. But if there is any lesson you can take away from the way people treat you, it is this: their actions often mirrors how they treat themselves.

Do you think that a person who mistreats you thinks they are superior to you? That is the illogical commonplace reasoning. More often than not the answer is “No.” They mistreat you because they are threatened by you in some way, shape, or form. Unless they are clinical narcissists or psychopaths, most people are deeply insecure and fearful. The more you go against the grain, the more threatening you become to them. Understand this, and your path becomes much clearer.

So …

What is your experience with self-love? I don’t know about you, but I’m inspired, challenged and comforted each time you drop by and leave a comment, so I’d love to hear your story below.
