12 Ways To Love Yourself And Be Happy With The World

Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?

12 things to start doing now:

  1. Find your happiness from within

  2. Be grateful for the wonderful things in your life

  3. Find your passions and focus on them

  4. Get healthy from the inside out

  5. Focus on the present moment and know that all is well

  6. Connect and spend time with your family and friends

  7. Enjoy hobbies and activities that you’ve been meaning to do

  8. Do things to refresh, renew and soothe your soul

9. Reconnect with who you are outside a relationship.

You lived a fulfilling life before. You were strong, passionate, satisfied, and happy, at least on the whole.

Remember that person now. Reconnect with any people or interests that may have received less attention while you were attached.

10. Discover yourself. Reflecting can teach you a lot about yourself as a person. This new-found knowledge can give you a better appreciation of who you are, your strengths, and what you want out of life. When you love yourself, you will learn that your self worth does not revolve around another person but rather is enhanced by the other person.

11. Embrace your independence. We tend to become very dependent and this can lead you to stop doing things that you enjoy.

  • While it sometimes feels good to have someone to rely on, being independent can feel good to. It gives you the freedom to do the things you want to do, when you want to do them.

12. Take up new activities. The best way to get back to life is to live your life. You’re alive and the world around you is an amazing place. Everyone has things that they’ve always wanted to do and this is a fantastic opportunity for you to try new things and experience the world around you.

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.”
