Increasing the Ability to Love Yourself and Others

getty-full-getty-3698-111917065-jpgLove is one of the greatest gifts on earth, but many people need a spiritual makeover when it comes to the subject of love. As the years go by, we find that love for ourselves and others starts to diminish due to negative experiences and the stresses of life. So, to increase love in your life follow these simple tips.

1. Focus on the good qualities.

Many times we focus on the bad that people do, or even the bad that we have done. So, one way to increase the ability to love yourself and others is by writing down the good qualities that you and other people have and focus on that. Be sure to compliment those around you. Catch them doing something right instead of something wrong.

2. Be thankful.

Be thankful for the gift that you are to people. Also, realize that many people have been good to you in your life and have helped you become the person you are today.

3. Forgive.

Forgiveness is one the most important qualities in a loving and healthy relationship. Forgiveness is not only for others, but it is also for yourself. So, let go of the past and live in the present.
