Self-love Exercise to Help You Heal Yourself
It may seem difficult to love again when you're broken-hearted, even for ourselves. And often, we become hard on ourselves and have negative thoughts in mind like "What's wrong with me?" "I am making too many mistakes." "Why I don't get it right?" then we start to frown and go deeper into the rabbit hole, get stuck, and start hating ourselves.
Each journey of self-healing is unique and different for everyone. But when we decide to start making a step forward and stop doubting ourselves, it will change how we look into things and eventually start accepting the situation and loving ourselves. And whether you choose to take care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally, it will all require a process.
Once your self-love journey starts, everything will follow. Acceptance, forgiveness, moving on, and eventually, you'll see the light of happiness again. Do you see it? It all should start with yourself. It all should start from accepting your own emotion and forgiving yourself. If you want to take a step forward, you must move your own feet. Practice these self-love techniques and make sure that you don't slip to the priority list's bottom.
Let go and Clear your heart and mind.
Let's start fresh. The first step always starts from scratch. Clear your heart and mind, and let go of all the things that are pulling you deeper into that rabbit hole. It's easy to say we "Just let it go," but what we have to understand behind those words is the fresh start. It is called acceptance and forgiveness, and it will both lead you to move forward.
Some people say that setting boundaries is the ultimate self-care because these boundaries will protect you from other people's conflict demands or your daily life in itself. You decide what you let and allow into your life and what you should let go and push out. This will allow you to say "no" if you want to, and it will allow you to focus on the things that only matter to you.
Setting boundaries is not being selfish and not being self-centered. Just because you say no to something now, it doesn't mean no in the future. It only means it's not essential to you and doesn't serve you now.
Remember that you designed these boundaries to protect you and your peace. It may take a while for them to be useful, but the more you use and practice them, the better they will work for you, and soon people will no longer take advantage of you.
Say Selflove affirmations
It will feel uncomfortable at first, for sure. But over time, it will become more natural as you start to develop more self-love and confidence. Pick a few self-love affirmations that you think you need to work on the most and consistently work with them. This can help reduce and eliminate your negative, disturbed states of mind and replace them with positive, peaceful, and empowering thoughts.
I carry strength, courage, and resilience within me.
I am worthy of infinite and eternal compassion.
I am authentic, true, and expressive.
I am confident in my individuality.
I am enough
I am exactly who I need to be at this moment.
I honor and respect my limitations and thank myself for the capabilities I do have
I am beautiful.
I love my body and all it does for me.
I choose me.
Learning to love yourself after a painful heartbreak can be difficult. These self-love techniques might ease a little of your pain but don't try to force yourself out. Remember that the right time will come, and self-heal takes time. Feel and let your emotions flow; let it all out until you feel it's time to pack up and start to move forward. What's most important, no matter where you are in your self-heal and self-love journey, is remembering.
You are worthy of love, and you are enough.
