The Work on ‘I need to feel good about myself in order to love myself’

I need to feel good about myself in order to love myself

Is that true?

No.

How do I react when I believe the thought ‘I need to feel good about myself in order to love myself’?

I wait to love myself, and as a result I very rarely love myself, if at all. So I make unloving decisions that, surprise surprise, don’t make me feel good!!!

Who am I without the thought ‘I need to feel good about myself in order to love myself?’

I just love. I barely think of myself, or evaluate anything about myself. I am at peace and so relaxed.

Is there a peaceful reason to believe the thought ‘I need to feel good about myself in order to love myself?’

No.

Turn it around.

– I don’t need to feel good about myself in order to love myself

In fact, I think self-love comes first. I’ve had it backwards!

– I need to feel good about my thinking in order to love myself

Totally. I need to eradicate guilt and painful thoughts and then I will love myself entirely.
