What’s Stopping You From Loving Yourself? How to Grow Self-Love – 120

February 11, 2020

Let’s talk about self-love. We all struggle to some extent with it, from doubting ourselves, to battling insecurities, and feeling unworthy. We know these are things we need to let go of, but the problem lies in the fact that we have no idea how. When we search for how to cultivate more self-love, the suggestions we find are just silly. Will getting a massage or buying ourselves another pair of shoes really help us love ourselves more? Let’s be real, those are just cover-ups. If those don’t work, then where do we find more of this thing called self-love? 

In this episode of This Grit and Grace Life podcast, hosts Darlene and Julie dive into the topic of self-love, everything from what’s stopping you from loving yourself more, to mindset shifts for accepting your insecurities, and the changes you need to make to boldly and confidently walk in the way that God created you.

This episode will help you recognize there are things to love about each and every one of us. But we need to stop focusing on what we love about others and start focusing on what we love about ourselves.

* “What is the price of five sparrows—two copper coins? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So, don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” Luke 12:6-7
* “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
