Nothing wrong with Self Love.

Self Love is a way of relating to yourself that does not involve harshly judging or punishing yourself for every mistake you make, or every time someone does better than you. Research on self-love shows that it is associated with:

  • Less anxiety and depression.
  • More optimism.
  • Better recovery from stress.
  • Better adherence to healthy behaviour changes, such as exercise or diet.

This involves treating yourself with the same kindness, concern, and support you’d show to a good friend. When faced with difficult life struggles, or confronting personal mistakes, failures, and inadequacies, self-compassion responds with kindness rather than harsh self-judgment, recognizing that imperfection is part of the shared human experience.

Don’t be hard on yourself, we all make mistakes and take time to grow.
