Take Back Your Power and Love Yourself

September 6, 2011

As a professional counselor for years I would tell people they needed to learn to love themselves.  But, beyond a platitude, how do you actually do that?  Ironically, one of the ways I discovered how to love yourself, was to consider all the ways people (especially women) were not loving themselves.  And, the more I thought about that, the more I realized that one of the main reasons women were not loving themselves was because of what they were being taught about love (almost all false) especially from movies.  Starting way back as young as when women are girls, they are being taught a variety of false notions about love.  These notions include:

  • Putting yourself last and your man first.
  • Waiting to live your life until a man comes and finds you.
  • Tolerating beastly behaviors.
  • Playing dumb and refusing to see the shadow side of life.
  • Misunderstanding how men learn to love and then confusing sex with love.
  • Settling for half a relationship instead of a whole one.
  • Much, much more!

Ultimately, these false notions were changed into their opposites creating a blueprint for how women (and men) could take back their power, love themselves, and learn to really love each other in the process.  Some of those opposites include:

  • Putting yourself and your dreams first in a healthy way.
  • Getting conscious about what you really want and finding healthy ways to pursue it.
  • Teaching others to treat you well because you know what good treatment looks like and feels like.
  • Knowing how to deal with the light and shadow in an effective way.
  • Discovering how to get a man to really love you.
  • Bringing together love and sex in a playful and healthy way.
  • Learning how to be whole so you can have a whole and truly loving relationship.
  • Settling for half a relationship instead of a whole one.
  • Much, much more!

Dr. Lisa Love Coaching Tip

At this point in time a number of people are facing unemployment, or worried about losing their jobs. When your basic security is threatened it is easy to lose confidence in yourself. Yet, changes like these are merely an opportunity to stretch and grow. Sure it may be scary, but it is time to trust in Spirit and trust in yourself. Get busy exploring new opportunities. Find ways to make yourself indispensable. Research what jobs might be most profitable right now that are suited to your talents or ones you could possibly cultivate. And, remember enthusiasm goes a long way in any job or job interview. Remember to move beyond your fear by focusing on what you can do to improve your life and opportunities. Then get busy doing it with a positive mindset that no matter what happens, you can still innovate new opportunities for you.
