How To Practice Self Love
Tell Yourself Something Positive every day

Tip number three on how to practice self love is to stop comparing yourself to other, honestly, a lot of us are guilty with this, we keep comparing our self to other people, I mean we are all born differently, you can’t keep comparing yourself to someone who maybe worked hard to get where they are or maybe are talented in whatever field that they are in if you want to get where they are then you need to work hard and believe in yourself enough that you can achieve whatever it is that you put your mind to.
Stop All Communication With Toxic People
Toxic people can be very bad for someone who wants to start their journey towards self love, they will keep bringing you down even when they see you see you succeeding in something, that is how some people are. So you need 5o distance yourself from them so that you can have some peace of mind.

When you start this journey of self love, you need to know that it will take a long time for you to get to where you want to be, the process will be slow but at the end of it you will be happy with it, you can also take a look at the questions for self-discovery, this questions will help in finding out who you are and what your values are (It helps me a lot and yes I still ask myself this questions)
Another tip on how to practice self love is to forgive yourself, one thing you need to know is that you are always going to make mistakes and it is OK to forgive yourself when this happens no one is perfect everyone makes mistakes it is the decision to learn from it or not to learn from it that sometimes define us.

Start Journaling or Recording your thoughts
Number eight tip on how to practice self love is to start journaling or record your thoughts, this is very important, you need to start writing down your thoughts and feelings, this will help you let out whatever it is that you are feeling at a certain moment. What I do is whenever I feel angry, I just pick up my phone if my notebook is not close to me and just record myself talking about my feelings and when I am done I sometimes save it or just delete it and I always feel better about it.
Express Yourself More
Another step on how to practice self love is to express yourself more, you need to let people know how you feel, speak mind in a conversation if you don’t like something that someone is doing to you, let them know, you keeping it to yourself won’t help them or you.
