To find happiness, you must develop an intense love for yourself. What do you need to be completely satisfied with yourself? In relationships, we are always seeking love. We are unaware of how powerful self-love can be. To be happy, one must practice self-love. It's important to prioritize self-love without neglecting work, school, or family responsibilities.

Start by saying to yourself, "I love myself." It's not conceited. When you truly love yourself, the universe supports you. Start engaging in self-love conversations, openly expressing your emotions, without depending on others to verbalize their love for you. Some individuals may need to dedicate years of hard work to cultivate self-love, but it is possible with practice. 

During my younger years, I faced challenges in accepting and valuing myself as a result of the negative remarks made towards me. I didn't realize that I already possessed the secret to loving myself, and all I had to do was activate it. It was a process for me to grasp the concept of self-love through affirmations, but it grew and blossomed. I have nurtured a strong self-love and safeguard my inner peace against outside judgments.

The secret to happiness, whether young or old, lies in developing a strong self-love and fostering lasting self-relationships. Prioritize self-love, dismiss haters' opinions, and remember that people will always have something to say. Their opinions are beyond your control.

The art of self-love lies in accepting your authentic self and disregarding others' judgments.
