Three things will last forever--faith, hope, and love--and the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13.

Loving yourself is vital, for you can't give CPR to one who needs love, without loving yourself first.

We must take the time to love ourselves. We're all guilty of pouring into others while forgetting self-love. Without self-love, we can create self-destruction.

For some self-love is like pouring alcohol on an open wound. Because the greatest struggle in life is the struggle to accept, embrace and love ourselves, with all of our imperfections. 

Now is the perfect time to destroy the bars. That keep you captive in mental prisons. Let go of the past and how many times you failed and press forward. 

Here are a few tips to help you along the way. 

1. Forgive yourself 
Leave the past behind you. Only mention it if demonstrating to someone of how far you've come. 

2. Make yourself your #1 priority
Make sure you take care of yourself first. Meet your needs and goals before trying to meet others. 

3. Cheer for yourself
When you do something good small or big reward yourself. Be your own cheerleader remember you are a part of the winning team. 

4.  Believe in yourself 
Believe that you can do anything you put your mind to. Nothing is impossible when you believe. 

5. Reward yourself 
You deserve Roses, Diamonds & Pearls... 

When we love ourselves we create peace & happiness. Love let's live on purpose.
