Learn to Enjoy Your Own Company & Fall in Love with the Real You
The relationship we have with ourselves, is one that we should nurture, cherish and pay attention to; after all, it is the longest relationship we’ll ever have, and we are not able to truly appreciate who we are unless we know who we are.
Learning to enjoy your own company and fall in love with the real you will enable you to develop a stronger connection with your authentic self; find out more about who you are; and give yourself more love so that you can flourish.
- You Must Spend Time Alone
We are often so preoccupied with our family, friends and responsibilities that we don’t get much time alone, and as a result, many people feel awkward when they are on their own because they don’t quite understand who they are alone with.
When we are on our own, it helps us understand what’s going on the inside; because too often we concentrate on the outside of our lives.
- Get In Touch With The Authentic Self
Being present means paying attention to the moment, rather than our thoughts. When we’ve constantly got thoughts running through our mind, it is impossible to delve into the authentic self because we are so locked in thinking about things that are irrelevant to what’s happening now.
If we are present and listening, it’s quite possible we’ll hear what the soul has to say because there is no distraction by thought.
Journaling is another good way to find out more about ourselves; you don’t have to be a writer, you just need to put pen to paper and lose yourself in words. Don’t think too much into it and don’t think about what you’re going to write first, be present in the moment when the writing starts and see where it goes.
Jotting down your inner feelings helps enormously to make sense of everything in your life and work out what’s bothering you, what’s going well and what needs to change.
- Love Thy Self
Enjoying your own company is a key part of self-love; if you don’t like being alone, it’s possibly a sign that you need to learn to love yourself more so that you can enjoy being in your own company.
Loving ourselves means focusing less on those awful thoughts; the ones where we put ourselves down and we look at our bodies and point out flaws. The ones where we think of all the awful things we may have said or done in the past. Those are the kinds of thoughts that push us further away from our true self. And besides, if those are the types of thoughts you are having when you are alone, it’s no wonder you don’t like being on your own.
When we are kind to ourselves and we feed our mind with positive and uplifting thoughts, we begin to notice all of our beautiful qualities, and alone time then becomes a pleasant experience because at that point, we have learned to love who we are alone with.
Use affirmations every single day to assist in your personal self-love journey. Affirmations helps heal many insecurities. You can now think loving thoughts about myself, rather than put myself down, and this has made a huge impact to both the inner and exterior of your life.
- Choose Your Company Wisely
Being with other people can be exhausting, especially if they are negative, and we may not realizes just how much this can impact us emotionally. People who are always complaining, scaremongering, or living in a victim role, are particularly difficult to be around. That’s not to say they are bad people, they are just not as evolved on the spiritual path, which means they focus on the negatives rather than the positives, and on the future and past rather than the present.
It’s good to be with good company, but if you had to choose between being alone or with people who drain my energy, it will be wise to pick myself.
When you begin to spend time alone and enjoy your own company, you’ll start to value your time more, and when you give yourself to others; you’ll want it to be a positive experience for you.
