“Love and ego cannot go together. Knowledge and ego go together perfectly well, but love and ego cannot go together, not at all. They cannot keep company.” ~ Osho
Nothing gives me more joy than to see the revolution forming around the concept of “self-love.” Never before have we seen a time where we celebrated individuality, uniqueness, authenticity and creativity more than our current era.
So many people are connecting with people from different cultures much more readily, and the ability to access information, wisdom and knowledge is at the touch of our fingertips, we are coming into a time where the “free-thinkers” of society are beginning to give the middle finger to the societal programming that once told us we “weren’t enough.”
Unfortunately this revolution on self-love has had many of us actually feeling worse about ourselves. The reason being, no one has really taught us the true meaning and the actual way to authentically love ourselves.
On the surface, self-love can be understood as, “the things I like about myself (either in comparison to others or in comparison to what society has told me is “correct”), which then puts us in a space where we wonder, “ok so what about all the stuff I DON’T like about myself?”
