OF A SELF LOVE WARRIOR
Self Love is a practice, a journey and a choice you make (or don't) in every moment. It is the foundation on which you make choices in your life that either support and nurture your body, mind and soul or leave you
There are 10 core principles of self love that make up a strong foundation of a self love warrior and you need all of them to be strong and truly thrive in life. Most of us are strong in some areas and weak in others, for example you might have a healthy level of self esteem so are confident in your abilities however you may ,
Self care is a common buzz around the internet and whilst is is a core principle and expression of self love, on its own it is not enough
Most people are strong in some fundamentals but weak in others which creates a rocky foundation. For example, you can be strong in self esteem, so have confidence in yourself and your abilities, but weak self compassion, and so you are often hard on yourself no matter how much you achieve, or you may never feel like you achieve or do enough.
The goal is to have all 10 branches well developed, nourished and strong and to also have an understanding of each, so you become more competent and masterful at giving yourself the kind of love you need.
When you know what kind of love you need from yourself, and how to give it, you are less likely to take self sabotaging actions, have negative thoughts, or be overwhelmed by fear, anxiety, stress, blame, and criticism.
, all branches need to be strong and nourished for the entire tree to thrive.
