Learn to love yourself first, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you. Those are lines right out of a live chat session I had this morning with a longtime reader and new course member of ours. Because the greatest struggle in life is the struggle to accept, embrace and love ourselves, with all of our imperfections. And to be aware that not everyone we love will agree with us every step of the way, and to be OK with it. We have to learn to be our own best friends, because sometimes we fall too easily into the trap What Are You Letting Yourself In For - Quigley - A Kind Of Loving being our own worst enemies.
We love the idea of others loving us, and we forget to love ourselves. When we have the courage to push through these walls — to know and embrace ourselves, despite our humanness, our flaws, and our rejections — we also open the door to connecting in more caring, empathic and intimate ways with others who are truly worth loving.
Events will come and go. Day and night will come and go. But a true love for yourself will always remain with you, if you nurture it. Which of these points do you struggle with? How will you love yourself more today? Leave a comment below and share your thoughts with us.

Other Manifest Destiny Pt. 2 - Rival Sons - Head Down loving practices I do is not being afraid to seek and ask for help when needed, and being picky with who I share my heart, energy and time with. Thank you Marc. As much as I know all of these things, I think I need to print this out and post it where I can see it every day! Spending time doing things I love.
Spending time with great people. Reading blogs and books What Are You Letting Yourself In For - Quigley - A Kind Of Loving yours to keep me inspired and mindful. Beautiful and important message. As a Mom and former School Counselor I was touched by this article. Once we learn how to appreciate and love ourselves flaws and all our world and relationships will change for the better.
Thank you for sharing this post and this whole blog. I will be sharing it with others. My self-limiting beliefs are something I used to desperately struggle with, but not so much anymore. Thank you for guiding me. I came across this blog today and have yet to do research on any of the books. But I strongly feel they would be worth the read, based solely on these sixteen steps and the quote you wrote in your comment. I try to distract myself constantly with random hobbies and good company, while avoiding the real issue.
I guess the fear of actual failure seemed more damaging to me than the constant failure I lived everyday by never even trying. And after all the wasted weeks…months…ok, years. I now beg for that feeling of failure if that failure means that at least I tried, at this point, tried at all. My comment dragged on a little longer than I intended, but thank you for that inspirational quote and thank Frankfurt Trax Vol.
5 - TV Spot - Marc Acardipane - Resident E X.1 to the writers of this blog. I do loving kindness practice, which begins with loving oneself and gradually extends to loving those close to you, those you feel neutral about, and finally even those who annoy and irritate you or who you may see as an enemy. Remember, you create the world you live in. Everyone and everything in your life you have drawn to you. What you choose to do with them is up to you.
Great advice in this post. The one I tend to struggle with the most is I tend to be a bit too serious and hard on myself at times. A good place to start today is to lighten up, have fun and spend more time with the people who have a great sense of humor. Laughter is the best medicine. I really find your articles useful and and always look forward to them dropping into my inbox. I too have shared this on my FB business page and Big Youth Special - Big Youth - Dread Locks Dread the article to some of my clients who I know will resonate with the message.
Thank you. Your posts are always well written and thought out, but this one was phenomenal! I actually got a stack of index cards and took notes. So many of us have this false sense of being in the world, to satisfy our parents and society, but it does not make us happy. Making everyone else happy and not self, kills the spirit.
Thanks you! For me number 6 and 12 are the focal points. I know the changes I need to make, but I am letting my own schedule get in the way. There is time enough, but I over book the week and literal recover on the weekends. As for 12, all things are NOT possible if you do not get off your duff and proactively engage. All things then become possible, and when you engage things become probable…which is much better than possible. Awesome advice. Too often we spend time trying to be everything to everyone… and everyone else beside ourselves.
I am just figuring out who I am after years of being afraid to embrace myself and to love myself, faults and all. Thanks for this post. If you cant live WITH yourself.
Then how can you expect someone else to live with you…I believe that you are best to others when you are first and foremost at best living WITH yourself.
I love your writings. I only wish I had the strength to love myself and have confidence. Even my teenage children see me so sad and self pitying. And to look at me from the outside…. Yesterday only I was thinking of how to love yourself articles and today morning it was there in my mail box from you. Thanks a lot for such a great article. But the only thing is my mind What Are You Letting Yourself In For - Quigley - A Kind Of Loving not stable yet. A not changing…every time m trying but m failing it has been more then 5 years m thinking of improving things in me….
Such a powerful article with such great principles for self-love and living authentically. Thanks for the post. Thank you! Loving yourself and accepting who you are is actually accepting the world you live in. It goes together and can not be divided. Once more thank you, Sophie - Marcus Miller - Live & More made my day and all the other coming days….
Sandra and David: Thank you so much for sharing those self-love strategies. Certainly gives me something new to consider. Everyone: Thank you, as always. As usual your article spoke volumes to my heart. I keep taking notes, wish i could remember it all. And I love what the person BlackDiamond wrote, it made me feel competent about myself and that Father would always be there to help me no matter what.
Thank you for this articleMarc! At present I am stuck in my ethnic community in Australia, and have been throughout my teenage years and youth. So, this has had an enormous negative impact on my life in the past 20 years. I am being isolated like a leper, and yet they want me around, as a measuring stick, so that they feel better about their pathetic lives! Why is so hard to forgive myself for the guys I dated, who never took their time to know me?
Discovering, clarifying, and living my truth is an inspirational practice that helps keep me focused on my gifts, talents, and potential.
I am enough! Living in the present is also important! Love your blog! I have to agree, I suffer with self doubt also. I would have to say 8 is what I would have to work on the most. I feel everybody has things about themselves that they have to confront at some point but never do and stay stuck. Thanks for writing this!! Tremendously inspiring article. Thank you for the book recommendations as well. These steps have really helped me but this sticks out the most.
I often find myself comparing myself to others and wishing and wondering when Tempo Di Valse - Antonín Dvořák - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Daniel Barenboim - English Chamber Orch i do as good as them but in reality really who post on social networks the bad in life?!
