Relationships with others can be highly complex and confusing, but the strangest part is that you don’t even need another person to have a difficult experience in a relationship.
With the numerous pressures from the modern world crashing down onto us, it’s no surprise that a lot of people are finding that they need more attention to their inner relationship – some self-love. If this isn’t something you’ve really thought about, you might wonder about what might be signs that you need more self-love.
1. You Don’t Have As Much Interest As You Used To
Do you have hobbies and interests that just don’t seem to really excite you or make you feel good anymore? If you’ve recently experienced a major change in attitude towards the things that used to get you out of bed in a day, then it’s possible that you need more self-love. When you don’t take care of your emotional needs and allow stress to rule multiple aspects of your life, the things that you once loved won’t feel the same.
Symptoms like those are found in depression as well. Depression can be a natural effect caused by unfulfillment in life. Possibly a job that grates on you, or an environment that you used to enjoy has become oppressive. These things can also be signs of a type of burnout. The responsible, self-loving thing to do would be to allow yourself to have more time to relax. It’s important to work, but it’s also important to be balanced.
When that balance gets murky, you can and most likely will get tired of the constant pressure. It might not be a threat at the moment, but things can change quickly, and suddenly you become overwhelmed.
2. You Feel You Are an Impostor
One thing that hasn’t been touched on so far in this article, is the internal voice that each and every person has inside of themselves. Sometimes your inner voice can play tricks on you and make you doubt yourself. The voice in your head might even attack and ridicule you randomly through the day. If this is the case, it would be a good idea to concentrate on positive things about yourself more often.
3. Less Assertiveness
If you find yourself taking a back seat to things in life more often, in that you don’t stand up for yourself or make your thoughts heard, that can be a massive sign that you need more self-love. Doing more healthy things for yourself will help you to feel better and be more in touch with your body. When you’re comfortable in life, you’ll be naturally more confident.
4. You Haven’t Been Bathing as Often
One of the biggest signs that you need to care for yourself more is that you haven’t been bathing enough. Lack of hygiene is a strong sign of depression and other related emotional disturbances. Make sure that you create a routine to keep yourself bathed. If you go without basic cleanliness, it can be easy to feel like nothing matters as much. Go out of your way to make yourself feel better and healthy. That along could be a massive boost to your attitude.
