"Love yourself" they say, and they tell us to affirm it everyday : "I love myself, I love myself, I love myself" as if it were going to magically transform our lives. It doesn't work!!! You know why? Because the Universe doesn't respond to lies. It responds to our main vibration. We can say it all we want, if we don't feel it in our heart it's just going to create more pain by making us ashamed of not being able to feel the love we so badly want to feel for ourselves.
Here's my precious advice if you struggle with self-love : a loud, desperate and heartfelt I HATE MYSELF is ten times more powerful than a half-assed "I love myself." Because it's AUTHENTIC. It's the truth of who you are in all your self-deprecating glory. And the Universe loves that shit.
Try it, say it out loud. Does it make you laugh? Are you crying? Doesn't it sound crazy? Saying it breaks your own destructive spell! I'm dead serious about this and I wish everyone would see this post especially the self-love advocates out there who put sparkles and unicorns on everything. I love sparkles and I love unicorns but not on my shitty feelings, thank you!
