This past week one of my husband’s family member was dealing with self-worth and self-love, and my husband and I were worried about him. I think everyone in their lifetime deals with some form of low self esteem, but we should make every effort to counteract that. We should make every effort to accept and love who we are.
You are worthy and special, no matter what. God agrees. Remember that.
Prayer for Self-Love – Don Miguel Ruiz
“Today, Creator of the Universe, we ask that You help us to accept ourselves just the way we are, without judgment. Help us to accept our mind the way it is, with all our emotions, our hopes and dreams, our personality, our unique way of being. Help us to accept our body just the way it is, with all its beauty and perfection. Let the love we have for ourselves be so strong that we never again reject ourselves or sabotage our happiness, freedom, and love.
Starting today, help us to love ourselves so much that we never set up any circumstances that go against us. We can live our life being ourselves and not pretending to be someone else just to be accepted by other people. We no longer need other people to accept us or tell us how good we are because we know what we are. With the power of our self-love, let us enjoy what we see every time we look in the mirror. Let there be a big smile on our face that enhances our inner and outer beauty. Help us to feel such intense self-love that we always enjoy our own presence.
Today is a new beginning. Help us to start our life over beginning today with the power of self-love. Help us to enjoy our life, to enjoy our relationships, to explore life, to take risks, to believe, and to no longer live in fear of love. Let us open our heart to the love that is our birthright. Amen.”
