stocksnap_g28mtspwn8 When looking into the subject of self-love I have found that people always blame lack of time as an excuse for not practicing the art of being loving to oneself. In the world of today, anyone could agree that most people lead very demanding lives. Always pulled right and left by the demands of our careers, our families, our activities, and our calendars. So, that could be a valid reason, however, if you ask people who lead very quiet lives with minimal demands why they choose not to practice self-love, they will also claim that time is the culprit. In my experience, time is rarely faulty, yet the fear of seeming selfish is mainly to blame. In this episode, I answer the question “Can we practice self-love without being selfish?” I begin by explaining that the vast majority of us grew up learning that saying no or wanting to indulge ourselves were acts of selfishness. Then I clearly define the difference between being selfish and practicing self-love. I also go on and explain why it is important to give ourselves love. Finally, I end by giving 5 techniques to invite self-love into your life and to put it into practice right away.
