Why It Is Important to Love Yourself

The past few days were a bit rough for me. I guess it is normal to have one of those shitty days in the relationship, right? As some of you may know that I have been in a long distant relationship for years, it can strengthen the bond between the two persons, yet it can extremely hurt the feelings too. However, it has also made me realized apart from the relationship, or the friendship among friends and animals, nothing is better than "loving yourself" Seriously, there are a lot of reasons why it is important to love yourself. Your love just can't hurt your feelings, can it?


I have seen a lot of postcards sold at Urban Outfitters, also online shops saying "I love you more than Kanye loves himself" I really love that idea, not only the illustration of Kanye is cute, but I also love that fact that he loves himself so much. I am not going to lie, but the past few days have had an effect on my daily tasks, though, I have tried to be more focus on my work. I have been trying to cope with the problem by listening to music, and it works. Music is the reason why I have started The Equinox Fashion blog, and it is the main supporter of my life. I don't know why, but it can gradually uplift my spirit, and sometimes change the whole perspective of what's in my head at that time.

Why we should love ourselves? My one and only answer is "So, we can love everyone else as well" When we concentrate on ourselves without any distractions, we can absolutely live our lives with the full effort. Why? Because we don't have to think about anything but the matters such as family, career, life goal, etc. Tbh, I felt like shit and it totally affected my capability in writing since my mind just couldn't stop thinking about that one problem I had. I couldn't focus my mind to come up with the new content, nor plan the contents for other websites (yes, I am currently working for The Deco Haus also). I kinda hated myself at that time because I couldn't see anything clearly, and the fact that I betrayed my blog by letting my emotion over passion...NOT GOOD! 

Although, I can't bring 100% back to this blogosphere yet, I have felt so much better right after deciding to love and care myself more. My mother always tells me that I am the person who cares about others too much, and now I know the reason why she said that. It is good to show the affection to other people, but if we let it consume our feelings, then we will eventually be the victim of it. 

Is it selfish to love yourself more than anything else? NO NEVER!

  4. Love your outfit ! <3
    Well, it's hard for me to love myself, because I always comparing myself with the other girls, with their "beauty standart" , such as lean long legs, v shaped face, etc. I keep trying and trying but idk why it feels so hard :(
    Thanks for this important post :")

  5. Absolutely agree, I think it's so important to be reminded of that from day to day, thanks for sharing!

  6. This is so true and it's important to remind ourselves because at the end of the day people will always come and go into our lives the only person you need to really be happy with is yourself because you can't escape yourself. I hope you feel better soon and everything works out for you xoxo
