One step, one slash, one-shot just like that, and it will be all over. Life put you through so much hell, yet you can end it all so easily. It’s getting harder to wake up every day knowing it’s going to be just like the one prior; it’s getting harder to try to use distractions when your troubled soul can’t be diverted for too long.

Lightness needs darkness, success needs failure, and strength needs a weakness. These opposing meanings emphasize the necessity of each to create balance. The point isn’t that one side is better than the other; all of those things are needed. They’re all part of the flow of the universe. They’re all part of each of us.

When sinking deep down and you think there’s no possible way up, try holding on to an anchor somehow it will pull you back up. Self-love is what will pull you up. Repeating kind words to ourselves such as “May you be well,” “May you be happy,” “May you be healthy,” etc., infuse a deep sense of self-worth instantaneously.

Loving-kindness meditation is a popular self-care technique that can be used to boost well-being and reduce stress. In 2012 Leung, Chan, Yin, Lee, So, and Lee published a study suggesting that individuals who participate in loving-kindness meditations demonstrate increased ability in regulating their emotions and increased accuracy in inferring the thoughts and feelings of others (also known as empathetic accuracy).

You can begin the practice of loving-kindness by meditating for fifteen or twenty minutes in a quiet place.

Sit comfortably, close your eyes, relax your muscles, and take a few deep breaths.

Start with self-awareness and focus on feelings of peace, calm and tranquility.

Then you let these become feelings of strength and trust, and then become the love in your heart. You can use an image, such as a golden light that fills your aura, or you can repeat to yourself phrases such as “May I be happy and healthy.”

Breathe gently and recite inward the following traditional phrases designed to promote physical and mental health.

Start with yourself, because it is difficult to love others without loving yourself.

  •     May I be filled with loving-kindness.
  •     May I be safe from inner and outer dangers.
  •     May I be well in body and mind.
  •     May I be at ease and happy.

As you repeat these phrases, picture yourself as you are now, and hold that image in a heart of loving-kindness. Or perhaps you will find it easier to picture yourself as a young and beloved child.

Adjust the words and images in any way you wish.

Repeat these phrases over and over again, letting the feelings permeate your body and mind.

Practice this meditation for several weeks until the sense of loving-kindness for yourself grows.

Studies show that people how to cherish and love themselves are less likely to suffer from depression and negative emotions. Self-love leads to a positive mindset, which leads by its turn for mental wellbeing, happiness, and success.
