Here are some self love journal prompts to feel worthy of everything that you desire.
Loving yourself is a constant work in progress. It’s a daily practice. When you love yourself you become dedicated to loving yourself every day and in all aspects of your life.
You become your own biggest fan. You don’t have to wear clothes you don’t like or find uncomfortable. You don’t buy things because it’s trendy or even feel the need to impress people.
You no longer participate in situations that hurt you just to please others. You are able to set boundaries, having no shame in standing up for yourself. Plus you start to look better, feel better and in return attract better into your life.
You have to feel worthy of love to accept pure love
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation”AUDRE LORDE
The people you have your life mirror the level of self love you have for yourself
I used to feel unworthy, so much so that when I was in a situation that I had to choose between others and myself. I would choose them. It took me years to finally let go of people or situations who weren’t good for me.
Now I find myself listening to me a lot more. It doesn’t take weeks, months and years to decide if someone or something is good for you or not.
Struggling with not feeling worthy meant that I would let people get away with treating me poorly. I’m happy that the woman I am today is someone that is asking for a whole lot more than just respect because she knows her worth.
