Here we are, thinking that one needs to be in love with another to shine, to feel free and shout from the rooftops, but the most important person, the most important relationship we’ll ever have is waiting, is craving to be loved truly and deeply.Ravikant, Kamal. Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It
As I had promised I have a book to recommend to anyone getting into the Self Love or Need a Reminder.
Why am I recommending this book you may ask, because this book has saved me more times than I can count.
When I first purchased this book, I was having suicidal thoughts, I was living with Mr. Ex and I was afraid of my own thoughts.
I remembered reading it and thought it was a load of crap. Like okay “Love my self”.
Look I was now getting into Spirituality and Self Improvement. I use the word Improvement because sometimes the word LOVE can be too strong. It was for me back then. Saying “I love you to myself”, felt strange, awkward, a bit uncomfortable.
I was at the time rejecting this book in a headspace that couldn’t understand that my issues were with me, my thoughts were mine, my self-concepts were mine.
I continued to do the work. Regardless!
No one ever told me to “Love myself” growing up. No one ever told me that my thoughts would create my reality or that when things got bad, I had to love myself no matter what.
GIVING THIS BOOK ANOTHER CHANCE
When I moved back into my apartment after my first break up with Mr.Ex. I had told myself I was going to try hard at the Self Love thing. If I had a hard copy of Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It, it would be so worn and used out by now, pages would be falling apart for sure. So I did it , I opened the book or more like listen to the book. I shut it off. I laid there on the floor, heart felt it was in turmoil. I put on the timer 7 mins, that what he said okay, let’ do it.
I would hear people speaking to me at work and I would drift, saying “I love my self”. There was something going on inside. I couldn’t explain it.It was like my heart opening or softening, something was happening for sure. Kamal is right, just say it, just keep doing it.
I enjoyed the audio version, Kamal’s voice is soothing, comforting, and charming. It’s his voice that kept me company on lonely dark nights, it’s his voice and lessons I went to bed with when all I wanted to do was die.
Now with the recent breakup, that left me feeling like there was no way out of this dark hole, I went to Kamal’s book, I needed to be reminded again of my lesson. “I love me self”, I kept saying it, over and over again. This time I put attention to what the words meant to my body. Same thing was happening again. My heart, it’s softening.
“I LOVE MY SELF, I LOVE MY SELF, I LOVE MY SELF”
There is something about betrayal that really messes with your self-worth and self-esteem, there’s something about loving someone so much, being ignored and abuse that makes your mind kind of go crazy, but crazy how ? who is crazy? It’s the thoughts. It’s the belief you have about yourself.
How was I going to love myself through this heartbreak, how was I going to move on and forgive myself? I know “I Love myself, no matter what. Unconditionally till death do us part”.
“I LOVE MY SELF, I LOVE MY SELF, I LOVE MY SELF”
What I liked most about this book it’s short, it’s straight to point. It’s full of power, magic, hope, life, and adventure.
Kamal has admitted in his other books, he didn’t know this one book would have changed so many lives. I am one of them, this book saved my life.
If you are now getting into the Healing/Self Improvement/Self Care/Moving On phase in your life then this book is a MUST have. Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It
Kamal if you ever read my blog, I want to thank you for all your work.
From: my soul “Thank you and I love you”
That’s another thing I’ve learned. There is strength in this vulnerability, in tearing down the walls. People sense it in you. The world is hungry for it. And the greatest healing — for you, for those around you — it comes from opening. Opening yourself wide. To your humanness, to your feelings. And ultimately, to yourself.Ravikant, Kamal. Live Your Truth
LIVE YOUR TRUTH
I recently purchased his other book Live Your Truth and it’s just as good as the first one. Buy them together if you can.
In Kamal’s recent book Live Your Truth I came out saying “I am worthy”. I am going all in Kamal, thanks to your books, “I am going all in”.
I won’t stop blogging now because of the last book he wrote. I don’t know, there are some authors that just know how to speak to your heart and soul. I feel like that with his books. I really do.
“I AM WORTH IT, I AM WORTH IT, I AM WORTH IT”
FORTY RULES OF LOVE, if I had to imagine what Aziz inThe Forty Rules of Love: A Novel of Rumi looked like I would think he looked like Kamal. Just had to put that out there.
I hope in this life I will be able to meet Kamal Ravikant and thank him in person, for his love of writing.
All suffering is when we say “no,” when we say, “I want it another way,” when there is no surrender to the present.Ravikant, Kamal. Live Your Truth
Have a wonderful Monday wherever you are in this world. Be kind and love yourself.
