Happiness is not on the outside. I agree with Shailene Woodley , we have to find the balance in our interior. First of all : ” To learn to love ourselves as we are. There will be enough people in the world that would be happy to put us down . Why should we feel that we are worthless instead of practicing each day positive thoughts . Some people believe that happiness is to be a millonaire, to drive a fancy car, a country house etc. etc. Is that possible ? And is not guaranteed that we will be happy either. But we can be millonaires in smiles and doing the things that we can and love.



I practice self love by learning. I love learning. I love learning languages, photography, science… I’ll be a learner till the day I die.Tha’s the way I practice self love.

Self-love…I do practice it every day on different levels. The greatest effort is needed in the morning – after looking in the mirror and feeling the pain of my own reflection. It takes positive thoughts and powerful tools to polish up the image I see :))

Anyway, I think it’s important to be happy in your own skin! It’s not a simple task. Somewhere between anger, mood swings, discomfort, good feelings and love is the opportunity to accept yourself as you are.

Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different ~ Stacey Charter



SELF LOVE is the key of happiness )) 



I think self love  one of the most important thing in the world, because if you can love yourself enough, you can love much esier others. And you know, the point is the Love. :)



I love this topic. For I thought one sentence on my working road this morning which is “the health of life and the healthy way of life is the origin of happy.”

Yes, the self love is also the origin of pleasure.

For me, the self love is having meals and sleeping in time. Besides that I love doing sport and studying some skills and walking  and writing. All those can give me much happy.

The meals and sleeping can offer me enough  physical energy. The others can give me mental happy.

It is so pleasure when you are exhausted  after sports and you began to have a rest.

It is so relaxed when you are walking by walking  when you are thinking something.

It is so excited when you try to express yourself by another language. Yes , it is a pleasure that expressing  one’s thought by different ways of thinking.
