Start a Journal

Writing it down will help you notice. You can then rewrite the words in a positive way. Then say it out aloud so you can hear the words. Practicing this everyday can change the way you view yourself.
Love Yourself by Saying NO to Others
Sometimes we do too much for people; we like to please other people, so we tend to try too hard and commit to everything we can. Sometimes we can forget to take care of ourselves, so it is good to say no. Focus on yourself when you can or feel overwhelmed.
That is why it is important to set healthy boundaries. Take care of yourself and fill your own cup before you can be there for others. Practicing say no when you don’t want to do something can help.
Don’t Compare Yourself With Others.
Others are neither better nor worse, more or less than you; They are simply different. You have value just the way you are and accepting yourself means there is no need for comparisons.
This has become even more prevalent since the rapid increase in people using social media. We see a snapshot of people’s best moments and then compare our own lives to it. Comparing ourself to a filter is also problematic. What we should be doing is comparing ourself to our past self and seeing how far you have come. You are doing great!

If you can challenge yourself, you will also come to know yourself and what you can do. Perhaps you are a singer who sings as a hobby but has wanted to sing at a concert for years. If you can take that leap and book a concert, you will challenge yourself and feel much more confident. Get out of your comfort self.

And only after you’ve worked out your potholes can you begin to see diamonds in the rough – your gifts.
These are the qualities of you that survive the journey. Empathy, spirituality, humor, love – everything you’ve cleaned up after erasing everything else. And when you love yourself and the things around you, only then can you properly share yourself with the world. Surrender your true self to the world and those around you. Now that you love yourself, it is time to start helping others to find the highest form of self-love for themselves.
