Self-reflection invites self-awareness, and self-awareness enables you to better regulate your emotions.
From this, we can get a deeper understanding of why we feel the way we feel and make positive steps towards change and growth.
Better emotional regulation equates to less anxiety.
Less anxiety means a more peaceful, contented, and stress-free life.
If you're searching for that one person who can change your life...look in the mirror
Self love isn't selfish...it is absolutely necessary...
I wonder if I asked you to name things you loved, how long it would before you mentioned yourself?
In order to create inner joy and happiness, we must first understand what it is that makes us happy, this is often a much more difficult question to answer than it sounds.
Finding your sunshine means finding your inner bliss, some people are deeply connected to that part of themselves, they create happiness internally and their environment reflects this back to them.
But for many, happiness is always something searched for outside the self, and most of the time remains elusive, so much so that he search for 'sunshine' just becomes an endless loop of trying to escape unhappiness, only finding it in fleeting external moments of joy, before it is taken away again.
Perhaps the saddest part of all, is you don't even know what makes you happy anymore?
To become so disconnected from the very source of who you are, that happiness, joy and a sense of wellbeing can only be gained from something outside of you, usually someone else...
Loving yourself can only come from having the solid foundations of a grounded and consciously created positive sense of self esteem. Only then can we try and tap into what makes us truly happy.
Low self esteem will almost always manifest in trying to gain the approval of others, leaving us at the mercy of 'sunshine' being provided by someone else, robbing you of your emotional independence.
If I asked you to tell me what makes you happy, you could probably give me a long list of things, but it's unlikely you would say "I make me happy".
