It has been said many times that the first step to learning to self love, which then helps you with self appreciation is to discover who you are.
To try to unravel the mysteries of what makes you uniquely you.
That is because whatever path you choose, whatever way of life you agree to follow, you will always need to rely on yourself and your judgement to make the decisions in your life.
Whatever rules you choose to follow you will first need to consider whether you agree with them or not.
Understanding who you are helps you to determine what you stand by, what you agree with and the foundation you set for the way of life you want to live.
Once you have set the principles that you 100% agree with, then all you need to do is stand by them.
There will be times where you feel that your principals will be questioned or you will face certain situations where they will waver.
But setting your own principles are the standards you have set for your life, they may change but should only do so in accordance to what you believe not by the expectations of others.
This doesn’t mean mistakes won’t be made or you won’t feel guilty for certain things you’ve done.
But you are writing the story of your life right now, you need to live your best life and the only way to do that is to live vivaciously unyielding to anyone else’s ideology but your own.
Having your own principles and standing by them allows you to confidently believe in yourself.
So make your own rules and don’t give anyone else have the power change them.
Reflect. Love. Heal.
