To love yourself is the absolute basis for anything else in your life. I know, it sounds counterintuitive, and even selfish, I struggled with this for years and years myself. However, it’s simple, without self-love, we can’t love others, or accept that others love us. Self-love is a seeing what is good in yourself. And that is the fundamental to recognizing what is good in others.
Self-love is a basic need for mental health, and for self-esteem. So following this list may cause your self-esteem to increase, and your mental health to improve.

Being alone in nature is a good way to practice Self-love
