Learning to Appreciate Oneself

When it comes to appreciation we can be thankful for many things from our home, family, careers and for the things we have obtain over the years. But what about appreciating self” not many people know how to appreciate themselves, and this is because of several factors in life, maybe you wasn’t told all through your child-hood that you are to love yourself, and that you are very unique. Now I know most people will say well the world does a lot of teaching men and women about how to love themselves, and you are right there are thousands of books, magazines and conferences and seminars on that very thing.


But let’s talk truth here because if a person does not love themselves from the beginning no book, magazine or motivational speaker can teach you or bring that out in you if it’s not already planted in your heart. Now the flip side of the coin is this, because we don’t live in a perfect world and everyone was not blessed with parents who demonstrated love, the only way for them to love themselves is to first forgive their parents for their lack of. You’re shocked that I said forgive, the reason is this, when forgiveness is not displayed you become bound to your parents negligence. The only way you can move forward is to forgive them, once forgiveness is giving you are now moving towards the  healing process. Which you will then be ready to move in freedom.

Enjoy you weekend and I will see you on Monday with a fresh brewed Devotion

  1. I’ve never found the right way to love yourself. Some people, even self-destructive people, don’t have a problem loving themselves. When I was suicidal, I loved myself enough. If anything, I was too obsessed with my own feelings and thoughts. When a person loves and cares for others, it doesn’t matter how they feel about themselves. When you live for something outside yourself, it doesn’t matter. 🙂 Just some random thoughts. I know I’m not unique, and anybody who tells me that is a liar. There are billions of people on this planet, many a lot better than me. That doesn’t mean I’m not gonna try to help this world as much as possible. It doesn’t hinder me from loving with all my heart. 🙂

  2. Desiray, maybe if I read this post a million times over the next 48 hours it will start to sink in. Perfect topic for a day when the evil one is hammering me from every direction. Appreciation of myself is apparently his biggest target on me. Thank you, my sister. With love.

    1. You are more then welcome my dear. This post was something that I had to learn about myself ten years ago. The enemy gets pure pleasure in making us feeling un-worthy. But as the word tells us we don’t go by what we feel we walk in faith. Amen…thanks for visiting and commenting, please come back when you can. Lord Jesus I ask that you bring your love on my sister and let her feel that love, in a mighty way. In the name of Jesus I pray.AMEN
