As you might have read from my posts at the start of this year, I chose ‘Metta’ as my Word of the Year for 2020 and shared how it meant taking care of myself first. When we talk or hear about self love, our mind, more often than not, jumps into the direction of selfishness. We spend our entire lives giving and caring for others, treating them with compassion, and often end up linking our self worth and self esteem to it all. Most of us forget that treating our own selves with that kind of compassion and care is not just good, but absolutely important. If you too, find yourself unable to offer that love to yourself, here’s a list of 5 books about self love that could get you to develop a more positive and loving relationship with your self.
