LOVE. When I say this word, I’m sure most of you might have first thought of your better halves or your parents or your friends. How many of you really thought of your own self ? Rarely anyone. We live in a world that is so busy finding happiness, acceptance, sympathy and endearment from the society that we forget to love ourselves in the first place. We invest so much of our emotions into other people that we start neglecting our own life. We look in the mirror and only find flaws in ourself and think that there is someone better than us out there. There is no greater power than loving yourself. No shortcut to a blissful world than knowing your self-worth and being self-aware. Here are a list of reasons why you must start loving yourself from today itself :

Shortcut 1

  1. It makes you a happier person – Self-love keeps all the negativity away from you and instills positivity and happiness in you since you finally know your self worth and opinions of the society won’t bother you anymore. You start looking at the brighter side of life and ignore the flaws. You become content with what you are and what you have.


  1. It makes you healthy – Scientifically proven, the more loved you are, the happier you will be and happiness each day surely keeps the diseases away!

  1. It makes you self sufficient – No more do you have to go and seek someone else’s help or even their company. You stop being dependent on others and start helping yourself.

  1. It helps you learn to be a secure person – Self- love makes you a very secured person and you no longer have to want or need anyone else’s attention. Security helps you to expect less out of other people and thus reduces the chances of you getting hurt.

I happen to be an enthusiastic learner and a very fun loving person. Extremely ambivert and moody. Living in this unbalanced world with the motive to inspire someone,somewhere. I love to read fictional novels in my idle time. Listening to music and spreading smiles across people's faces is what soothes me. I'm a very philosophical person and love to give my own insights to everything. Just like any other eighteen year old teenager , I am a social media buff ,too and am attached to my phone all the time. With a flair for writing ,I hope to convey my imagination to a lot of people. Simplicity and diligence are the two adjectives that I believe define me the best.
