 What does it mean to 

“love myself”?



Christina Paxinou


Much would have been different in our lives if we had asked this question to ourselves:
Do I really love me?
But what does it really mean to "love myself"?


First of all, it is very important to understand what our feeling and needs, and to respect them.
This means that I do not trample on them, I feel confident in expressing my opinion, without
being concerned about the judgment of others. As simple as it may sound, it is very important to
be in touch with our feelings, to listen to them and follow them. This starts with trusting you and
listening to you. There are no good or bad feelings, wrong or right, and many times we cannot
understand on our own why we experience certain feelings. Since it is everything you feel and
experience, you need to accept and not cover them up.
Set your limits and follow them. The fact that your friend may have invited you to go out doesn't
have to push you and force you to do it if you feel like you don't want to or can't. It is very
important to listen and accept what we feel and not to ignore it, so by listening to ourselves and
respecting our limits, this will pass on and be respected by the people who will come into your
Apart from the negatives, focus also on the positives. What most of us are used to is seeing the
negatives, talking about them, and ultimately allow them to occupy the biggest part of our lives.
Think about how many times conversations you have had, discussing reasons you are not well or,
and how many times you have focused on the reasons you are well. Allow more space in your life
for all that makes you feel well, rejoice, and enjoy. Say "bravo" to yourself for something you
have achieved and appreciate it.


Most people find it difficult to treat ourselves well, in any way. This is because probably no one has
"how important we are" and somewhere in the years we left it behind. Perhaps the experiences
that you have gone through were quite difficult and the people next to you mostly focused on negative
emotions instead of laughter.

Everything in our lives takes time. If you dedicate some time to yourself daily, you will be able to answer,
“Do I really love me?” with a resounding YES.

You will be surprised by how many changes such a transformation will mark. Once you start to love you,
take care of you, and appreciate you as you deserve, everything around you will change and adapt to it.

It is not an easy process, after all, no new beginning is easy. It takes time, patience, perseverance and a lot
of effort. For some it is easier, for others less so, for that there are many ways to get to self-love and for
this great change in your life and one of the ways is therapy.

Choose your own path and start now.
