Is Your Self-Love Incomplete?

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're

going to talk about self-love.

This is one of those topics that a lot of

us have an intuitive sense that we might

need more of, but tend to have a complex,

complicated relationship toward achieving.

A lot of times, our idea of getting

more self-love means getting to

someplace where we can actually love

ourselves, becoming some version of

ourselves that we deem worthy of love.

But self-love that is predicated on

reaching and maintaining a certain

version of yourself is, in my

opinion, an incomplete self-love.

The real work that we're doing here is

to love yourself completely, even if

you're not yet where you want to be.

You let this well of love and acceptance

and understanding for who you are in

this moment and all the reasons you

might be where you are and not yet

where you want to be, you let that

well of love propel you to your next

stage of growth, but you don't let

it be contingent upon your growth.

That would be considered conditional

self-love and it's one slip up away from

falling into the pit of self hatred.

Meaning if we're not able to maintain

this version of ourselves that we

deem worthy of self-love and something

happens, something goes wrong, then

we're easily going to fall back

into berating ourselves, not liking

ourselves, not feeling worthy.

So as a reinforcement, and we talk

about this in a lot of these videos,

it's important to hold yourself to a

high standard, to be excited about your

growth, to see where you're at right

now and who you want to grow into.

But simultaneously make sure you're

developing this quality of, of

self-acceptance, of self-love, of

understanding and compassion towards

yourself for where you're at right now.

Because if you don't, you'll just get

to some future moment, but still feel

that inadequacy or you'll be on a

very fragile foundation for the kind

of self love that, that you think

you, you want or have developed.

But again, it won't have

a sturdy foundation.

The sturdy foundation is what

we're developing here and we'll

continue to explore how to

develop it in today's meditation.

So thank you for your practice.

And let's settle in

forward today's meditation.
