Hey guys, welcome back to my channel, in today’s video I’m going to be talking about why self-love should be your number one priority.
So, I know you’ve heard it a lot, you’ve seen all the Tumblr posts, and the posts on Instagram that say love yourself, treat yourself, put yourself first, and I’m sure that you agree with it when you reblog it, but how many times have you actually taken the time to work on yourself and to learn how to really love yourself? Assuming that those posts aren’t enough, I wanted to make this video to really convince you why self-love should be your top priority.
1. YOU CAN’T MAKE IT WITHOUT YOU
In this lifetime you’re going to have so many supporters–your friends, your family, even strangers online–but in the end, you’re the one who makes it. You’re the one who actually takes all the action, does all the stuff you need to do, and if you are constantly looking yourself in the mirror and insulting yourself or you’re feeding yourself comments that only make you insecure, then it’s going be really difficult for you to go on in life and to follow the things that you love to do.
So, you have to love yourself because there is no making it without you. You have to read books that will teach you how to appreciate every physical aspect of yourself. You have to read articles and watch courses that will help you develop your mentality, so that you can say, “I’m intelligent,” and “I can make it.”
2. YOU ARE HAPPIER OVERALL
I’m sure you can imagine when someone is walking with their shoulders hunched and their head down, it’s obvious that they don’t have deep confidence in themselves, and they’re probably running negative thoughts through their mind. On the other hand, if you see a person who walks down the street with their shoulders straight and their head up and smiling at strangers, then you can tell wow, this person is really confident.
It must be because they’re taking the time to develop who they are! Also, when you love yourself and you’re happier, you attract more positivity in your life. Whatever vibe or energy vibrations you put out, you get back.
3. YOU ONLY HAVE ONE LIFE
Why shouldn’t you absolutely love everything about yourself in this one life? I would rather go living my life absolutely confident in who I am and how strong I am than just spend my days in my room hating myself and letting doubt and fears take control of who I am. You are so amazing and so strong, and it doesn’t make any sense to not love yourself in this one life that you have.
4. YOU CAN’T NOT BE THANKFUL FOR YOURSELF
How many times have you taken the time to thank yourself for overcoming an obstacle? I’m sure you’ve had your best friend give you advice on how to solve a problem, but in reality, it was you who was able to take that advice and put it into your life. How many times have you said, “Thank you me for not giving up and for pursuing, even though I had all these obstacles being thrown at me.”
You should love yourself because you deserve it because despite all the shit you’ve gone through, you’re here watching this video learning about why you should love yourself, and if that isn’t an accomplishment to be celebrated, then I don’t know what is!
5. YOU ARE THE ONLY YOU THAT WILL EVER EXIST
There will never be anyone like you.
How many times have you been attracted to someone because they’re different? You say you like this person or you’re friends with this other person because they’re different, and guess what? You have that uniqueness too!
So, if you like a person for being different, then why wouldn’t you like yourself for being different, for being unique, for being your own person? There will never be anyone like you, right? It’s a cliche, but you’re the only you there will ever be and it’d be crazy not to absolutely love yourself for being unlike everybody else.
So, those are the reasons why you should make self-love a top priority in your life!
