For a long time, I was battling with the idea of " Loving yourself" and what it takes to do so. 
This concept takes time, space and a lot of self-reflection, ( by that  I mean you have to look inside of yourself and really and truly think about what you want to achieve out of life and put your needs above others. 

These are the questions you need to be asking yourself;

  • Who am I?
  • What do I want?
  • What do I need?
  • Is there anything I really want to achieve?
  • What makes me happy?
  • Who can I trust and will be there for me?
  • What do I stand for?
  • Am I doing the right thing?
  • When will it be my time to shine?

If you are able to answer these questions and be truly honest with yourself, then you are on the right path and have a game plan to succeed in life. But don't be surprised and get scared if this plan changes, you have to be able to adapt to new situation and keep moving forward.
