Can You Love Yourself When You Have More Flaws Than Virtues?

Do you find it hard to love yourself? If so, you are not alone. I’ve found that when people have difficulty loving themselves, there is usually something they cannot forgive in themselves. Maybe it’s something they think they should’ve done or shouldn’t have done, and they beat themselves up over and over. Can you relate? Some people think they are not worthy of love because they have more flaws than virtues. It’s difficult to love yourself when you think this way. Guilt, shame and un-forgiveness can block out love, peace, joy, abundance and all good things in life.

So, how do you love yourself when you think that you are not worthy of love? Someone once told me that she thinks it’s impossible to love yourself unconditionally, without believing in a Higher Power who is all-loving. I didn’t agree with her at first, but, I now think it’s a helpful point of view to adopt, especially for those who have a hard time loving themselves. So, I’m offering it for you to consider and try it on for size. If you believe there is an ALL-LOVING Higher Power, that means He or She loves, accepts and forgives you (and everyone else) UNCONDITIONALLY. In other words, you ARE loved and you ARE worthy of love by the Divine, always and unconditionally. If the Divine can love you unconditionally with all your “flaws”, how can you not love yourself? It’s a CHOICE you’ve got to make for yourself.
