Do Unto Yourself as You Do for Others

Self-Love logo

Today is Day 28 of my 31 Days of Self-Love posts to celebrate Self-Love Month with suggestions for jump-starting your own self-love and joining The Self-Love Movement™.

Most of us know the Golden Rule about how to treat others—Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. It’s a reminder of not to do anything to someone else that you wouldn’t want them to do to you. But, the reverse is true too. When you don’t love yourself, you treat others better than you treat you. People pleasing and a lack of self-love tend to go hand-in-hand.

As Self Love Month comes to a close, make this your permanent mantra:

“I will do unto myself as good if not better than I do unto others.”

Being a people pleaser isn’t self-loving.  That’s when you make what others want more important than your own desires. If you need to keep reminding yourself to be kind to you, keep reminding yourself!  Every act of kindness that you give yourself is another brick in the foundation of your self-love. In the video below I share how it works. I hope that you’ve gotten some good out of Self Love Month to jumpstart your desire to love yourself

Rewriting Elizabeth Barrett Browning
  Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I borrowed it for the title of the book I’m giving away through The Self-Love Movement™---How Do I Love Me? Let Me Count the Ways. To build self-love, it’s good to think in those terms. I suggest you rewrite

Shutting Yakkers Up Nicely
Have you ever just wanted to be left alone but someone intruded on your space? When I was a DoorMat and someone talked my ear off when I wanted silence I’d just smile and let them go on and on. I’d get mad inside and feel frustrated at my inability to say what I was feeling—SHUT UP! I’d g
