You took birth, you lived, and you died. People remember you for your good work and bad, but in this entire life what did you do for yourself? Self-love is about your need.
There is a difference between need and want. Self-love is “love to yourself” and so it demands to fulfill your needs first. We get busy with daily life and make a general routine for ourselves where we plan to balance our social and work life. We ignore our mental, emotional and spiritual needs and trust me if you really want to balance personal as well as professional relations in life, first you will have to start loving yourself. You might have this question in mind that why do you need to “Self Love” when you already like yourself?
One need to understand the deepness of “You liking yourself” and “You loving yourself”. I like myself when I get appreciation at work by manager, I like to go to a bar, I like to date rich men but do I love myself at this; this is where you catch the narrow line separating like and love.
