Self-hate is a dark gaping pit that engulfs our peace of mind and unleashes horrors into our lives. The estranged mind harnessing self-loathing fills the heart with pain, anguish and grief. When it is meddled by these despotic thoughts, life becomes oblivious to the beauty that surrounds it and people lose themselves to the deluge of depression. Hence, climbing out of this dark sinkhole in life is important.
“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the universe, deserve your love and affection” – Buddha
Making yourself your number one priority is often mistaken for selfishness. It is reckoned to be unkind and even rude. However, the truth prevails that it is the most beautiful thing you can do for yourself. The maximum time you spend with is yourself. So, while you can be your best best-friend, you can be your worst enemy as well. Ergo, being kind to yourself is important.
Self-love is the key to live a happy life. It is the root of all the happiness in your life. No one will love you more than you and so, you have to ensure that you add some value to your life and make it more meaningful. So, here are 3 tricks to add value to your life:-
Go out on an adventure
‘The value of life can be measured by how many times your soul has been deeply stirred.’ -Soichiro Honda
The human mind is marvellously complex and prone to boredom. Therefore, life should be adorned with experiences and adventures that make it more exciting. Although it may sound a cliché, exposure to new surrounding and adventure rejuvenates the mind. India is a country replete with destinations that are blessed with breath-taking and surreal beauty. You can travel to a place like the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary and spend some time in the wilderness to break the daily mundane schedule.
Have a ‘Me Day’
Pampering yourself is the perfect way to add value to your life. It makes you feel good about yourself and increases your self-worth. Once you start getting comfortable and confident with your personality, your self-esteem boosts. This helps to create a new meaning of life for yourself.
Celebrate your ‘Me Day’ by booking a stay at a 5 star Binsar resort like the Tree of Life Grand Oak Manor and spending your weekend in royalty. The spellbinding lush green surroundings will captivate your soul and the rejuvenating spa will relax and unwind your body and mind.
Learn something new
Taking up a new hobby or learning something new is never harmful. While the stagnant comfort zone seems more desirable, the newness adds a spark to your life. It keeps your mind engaged in something productive and distracts you from unwanted self-disparaging ideas. Besides adding meaning to life, it motivates you in life.
Life is a series of serendipities. It is a mystery that unravels itself with time. However, this mysterious experience is embedded with hurdles and obstacles that make it difficult. Loving and valuing yourself will make this surreal journey a beautiful experience.
