100+ Things To Love About Yourself

Written by Peter Keszegh

Humans are always looking for validation from others and are concerned about what others think of them. This is the reason why we have self-esteem issues. 

In reality, this can be easily cured if we stop seeking validation from others and start loving things about ourselves.

Studies suggest that self-love not only boosts your self-esteem but also helps you grow mentally and physically. 

Sadly, we all love others very passionately but when it comes to ourselves, we become our biggest critics and can't find things to love about ourselves. 

This becomes obvious using a test. Ask yourself to write down 5 things that you love about yourself. And I am sure that most of us won't be able to complete the list. 

I know it's hard to love yourself because we were never taught that. However, this will change today. In this article, I will mention 100+ things to love about yourself to feel happy alone.

Why is self love so important? 

Putting yourself on the priority list is very important if you want to have a positive life. No matter how tough it is, one should always make sure to love oneself unconditionally 

Here is why self-love is important:

1. Builds confidence

One of the main reasons why people suffer from low confidence and low self-esteem issues is that they think poorly of themselves. They also think that the world has the same opinion about it.

Why is self love so important

But once people start acknowledging their skills and start loving themselves unconditionally, they find out that they are good at certain things. This boosts their self-confidence. 

2. Mental and spiritual growth 

If a person does not love himself or herself, they are always doubting themselves and having bad thoughts. 

This stunts them from growing mentally and spiritually because of the negative thoughts in their mind. 

However, once you start loving yourself, you get rid of all those negative thoughts and find yourself in a better mental place.

Self-love also helps to connect with nature and god.

3. Ability to love others better

If there’s a person who can not love himself or herself, it is less likely that they will be able to love others as well. This destroys their relationship with their loved ones many times. 

Hence if you are a self-hating person, make sure that you start loving yourself to love others and have a loving relationship with them. 

4. Ability to live authentically

In this world, living authentically is very tough. It comes naturally to those who don't have to please others. 

This becomes too tough for a person who hates themselves because they think they need validation from others. Hence they live a life just to please others losing all authenticity. 

5. Greater life satisfaction

If there are things that you love about yourself, then you are satisfied in your life.

This is because you do not need others to tell you if you are good or bad. You know yourself what's good for you and what’s bad for you making you live a life of satisfaction. 

6. Increased happiness

Happiness comes in life when you love people, people love you, you are healthy, you have a deep spiritual connection with god, etc.

All of this happens when you start loving yourself which automatically leads to a happier life. 

How to practice self-love?

Now we all know about the things that we should love about ourselves and how they will help us. But the question is how to practice self-love and lead a satisfactory life where people love you and you love people? 

How to practice self-love

Well, practicing self-love is not easy but it is also not impossible. If you follow the process given below regularly, you will find it easier to love certain things about yourself. 

Here is the process of how to love things about yourself:

  1. Stop pleasing people.
