6 Ways You Can Show Yourself the Love You Deserve

Published

on

It’s been said so many times that you can’t expect to be loved when you yourself can’t afford loving your own self, and as cliche and repetitive as it sounds, it is indeed true because believing that you are unworthy to be loved will eventually lead you to settling for anything or anyone.

The thing is when people think about self love, they would usually think to themselves that they should do that more often and that’s it. But practicing self love should start right away, should start with the intention of wanting more and never settling for less.

Here are simple ways you can start with…

1. Take a Vow

Start by promising yourself that you will do better by it, that you will take this road towards self love seriously with the intention of loving it so much that you won’t ever allow anyone to hurt it. Treat yourself the way you would treat others and when you do, wait and see how it will repay you for the love you have been giving.

2. Say “No” More Often

Not being able to say no is certainly one of the worst things you can be doing to yourself, not wanting to hurt someone’s feelings so you end up hurting your own is NOT healthy. So start learning to say those magical two letters word, no to an outing you don’t feel like going, no to a task that takes too much effort from you, no to the pressure that someone is putting on you and no to whatever it is that you don’t feel like doing.

3. Acknowledge Your Emotions.

Denying how you feel won’t magically make your feelings go away, face how you feel, acknowledge your emotions and try to resolve whatever it is that’s causing you distress. Stop resisting what your mind is trying to tell you and start listening, if it’s a job you dread, quit. If it’s a person being toxic, cut him/her off! Your mental health is worth so much and you must response to its needs and symptoms just like you would answer to your physical needs.

4. Charge Your Soul

As silly as it sounds, it’s a pretty effective method because every now and then, you need to take some alone time and enjoy the company of yourself. This will help you determine its needs and answer to them, it will also give you the time to reflect on both the past and present.

How to? A simple date with yourself would suffice, spa day or even going out for a run! Just pick a hobby you favor and go for it.

5. Accept Your Mistakes

We’re no saints and we have certainly done many wrongs, we’re all the bad guy in someone’s story and you can’t change that! So accept it, accept that you have sinned and get ready to move on, accept your past mistakes and work on never repeating them, stop judging yourself or trying to correct your flaws and most important, stop comparing yourself to others’ looks, personality or achievements.

6. Set Boundaries and Values

Set boundaries, determine your values and let no one ever cross it! Not your family, not your colleagues and not even your closest friends. Draw a border of respect and let no one cross it even if it’s your loved one, because learning to love yourself starts by respecting it enough that you see the beauty and determination in it.

Last reminder is that self-love journey is a long one, it will take time and effort and will see drawbacks but you just have to keep moving and keep trying.

New Swine Flu With Pandemic Potential Found in China

Published

By

A new type of swine flu has been discovered by Chinese researchers with the possibility of infecting humans and causing yet another pandemic! The study was released on Monday.

Scientists warn about the virus but for the time-being, they say that it doesn’t impose an immediate global threat.

The disease, knows as the G4 virus, is genetically descended from the H1N1 swine flu that caused a pandemic in 2009. G4 nowshows “all the essential hallmarks of a candidate pandemic virus,” said the study, published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

We know how scary this sounds but Dr. Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at Columbia University’s public health school, asked the public not to “freak out.”

“Our understanding of what is a potential pandemic influenza strain is limited,” she posted on Twitter. “Sure, this virus meets a lot of the basic criteria but it’s not for sure going to cause a hypothetical 2020 flu pandemic, or even be a dominant strain in humans.”

No evidence has shown yet that G4 could be transmitted from one person to another, perhaps the most promising sign so far, said Carl Bergstrom, a professor of biology at the University of Washington.

“This is not a *new* new virus; it’s been very common in pigs since 2016,” he tweeted. “There’s no evidence that G4 is circulating in humans, despite five years of extensive exposure. That’s the key context to keep in mind.”

However, researchers are warning the public that the virus is rising among large populations and could and could “pose a serious threat to human health” if not carefully monitored.
Transmission of the virus from pig to human could “lead to severe infection and even death,” said the study.
So should you be worried? For the time-being no but no one knows what this could mean for us in the future.
