Hearing someone tell us, “I love you” is one of the best feelings in the world. Hearing it every day can really change your inner landscape, your mood, your emotions, even your outward appearance. The easiest way to increase the number of times you hear this – is to start saying it to yourself. The person you were at age 2, age 10, age 12 – they are not gone. They are all still inside of you. And they need to hear that you love them. Find a picture of yourself as a child and say out loud, each day, I love you and I am going to take care of you. Say it when you are alone in the car. Say it in the shower. You can even shout it from the rooftops. If you do this each day for one minute, miracles can happen. For when we know, really know, that we love ourselves, often the world begins to love us right back.
