How Loving Yourself can Change the World

Did you know you have the power to change the world every single day? All you need to do is love yourself, and that positivity will radiate. You have a unique gift to give, and once you see the value in your smile and self-esteem, the world around you changes. Self esteem is an overall reflection of one’s worth. Unfortunately, low self esteem prevents people from gaining healthy friendships, living a positive life and contributing to the community. Maxwell Maltz, an American cosmetic surgeon, said, “Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-break on.” Stop pumping the brakes on life and become more altruistic simply by loving yourself. Here are three side effects you’ll enjoy:

Become kinder—When you learn to accept everything about yourself, flaws and all, you develop a more positive attitude which permeates through your everyday actions. You smile more, you’re more likely to let someone have the last french fry, and do more small deeds. You really can change someone else’s day for the better with just a smile and a kind word.

Relationships improve—With a positive attitude and unconditional self-love, relationships naturally become more supporting and loving. Not only does your optimism spread to those closest to you, but you become more accepting of your family members’ and friends’ flaws.

More involved—Unconditional self esteem is infectious, and you’re likely to spread it to your family and friends, but also to those you help in the community. You’ll be more likely to volunteer and make an impact in the community while bettering the lives of others just with self esteem.
