Self Love - be kind to yourself Smile at your reflection in the mirror. Let others compliment you. Bask in other people’s approval when it comes your way. Be gentle with yourself over small mistakes. Value who you are and stand up for yourself. Get to know yourself like a friend. Be easy about your personal quirks. Be as natural as possible, not worrying if you are pleasing or displeasing others. Speak your truth when you know you should.
