The basic logic in loving yourself before loving someone else lies in the question, “How can you love another when you cannot love yourself?”
Loving yourself is not a one-time deal. For most of us, it can be a tough, long process, learning our strengths and our weaknesses. But it is important to understand that both are necessary, both aspects influence our life, make us who we are!
Practicing self-love can not only give you insight into your personality, but can also help you realize what traits you may be looking for in a partner. Only after getting comfortable with loving yourself can you fully let someone else in, and have a healthy relationship.
Being at odds with yourself will leave you on edge, always questioning your decisions and not being able to express yourself openly. Self-love includes accepting yourself, loving your quirks, and being okay with your individuality. Appreciate your beauty, practice self-affirmations, be patient with yourself. Learn to be comfortable in your skin.
Leading psychologists believe that for a healthy life and a healthy relationship, both partners should be independent and should practice self-love. A few ways in which you can increase self-acceptance includes, first and foremost, being honest with yourself and your needs. While this point is a major necessity, you should also be forgiving; of yourself and of others. Holding grudges will pull you back in life.
Astrological factors could also be influencing your issues with self-love. According to some astrologers, your zodiac sign plays a significant role in influencing your personality, and so, could also be influencing how you love others, and yourself!
For instance, if you are a Taurus, you would have experienced situations when it is only possible for you to be let go of insecurities and trust someone when everything else in your life is stable and secure. For a Cancer, you seek self-love in your partner’s love, and for a Scorpio, you may be neglecting self-love by wasting your time indulging in toxic and unhealthy relationships.
While sometimes, because of your zodiac sign you may be neglecting your own needs, on the other hand, it could be due to a toxic relationship. A serious problem could be when you cannot find time for yourself and for the things you love if you are constantly preoccupied with your partner. You should not have to mold yourself according to your partner’s needs. Consult our expert astrologers on Astroyogi.com to get a detailed analysis of your astrological compatibly with your partner.
Poor relationship compatibility will result in you not taking care of yourself and not loving yourself.
A relationship can only work when both of you work together and build each other up instead of constantly being negative and critical. Love should not be one-sided. If only you end up doing all the work and heavy lifting, it will disrupt the balance in your relationship, and leave you feeling stressed and exhausted.
