Inner Peace is More Important Than Proving Your Point: Practice Self-Love

0 2 years ago

We often search for love outwardly because this is how we found love and security as children. Love was always rewarded to us whenever we did something right. Yet we didn’t forget this, we continued to seek love to this day in other people, but the truth is, the love we’re all looking for can only come from within.

Since we’re not comfortable with our capabilities, we don’t find someone else’s love to be enough for us. To be truly happy and feel safe, we need to be more confident with who we are and how we love ourselves, and there’s only one way: self-love.

We practice self-love so we can force through our limiting beliefs, live a meaningful life, and unearth inner peace. It’s a big deal because you don’t want to be resentful nor to live each day trying to prove your point.

How to find inner peace?

Inner peace has always been a fascinating topic. Not for nothing, it has been covered worldwide by spiritual leaders, therapists, psychologists, and leaders. The problem is we often romanticise inner peace as the answer to everything but do very little to attain it because in order to achieve this state, we need to do something very scary: to change.

Finding your inner pace sounds serious. It requires you to simplify your life and live in the present moment as much as possible, which is hard for some people. Peace, therefore, is the result of reorienting your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.

We live a busy, hectic, and at times overwhelming life, so it may feel like bringing just a little more calmness and inner peace into it is a hopeless wish. But we also know it doesn’t have to be that way. Smart and small changes can, over time, teach us how to find this inner peace.

Practice daily gratitude

This is vital to your inner peace and happiness. People who regularly practise gratitude by taking time to think about the things they’re grateful for feel more alive, experience more positive emotions, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even develop a stronger immune system.

Obviously, gratitude shouldn’t be reserved for momentous occasions: you might express gratitude after getting a promotion, but you can also be grateful for getting yourself a beauty advent calendar or something as delicious as a lemon cake.

Research points out that keeping a gratitude journal – in which you daily recognize moments you are grateful for – can considerably improve your well-being.
