Welcome to the Daily Dose of Self Love. This series will be about self love, self care, self esteem and self worth. Basically everything related with SELF. My aim with this series is to give you a daily boost of self love and self care. We all get busy with our lives and sometimes it leaves us less or no time to take time for ourselves, be with ourselves, wash off all the negativity that we accumulated during the day with self love, meditation, etc. The daily boost will be in an easy to understand and more importantly something which is relatable. So Welcome!!
Self Love Practice Tip #35
In today’s post we will talk about how we need to stoop putting others down. Do you remember a time when you might have blatantly put someone down due to colour of their skin or how they look? If no, great. If yes, stop saying things that contribute to colourism. Like, “Oh, she will be prettier if she was fairer”, “Don’t marry dark people” and other negative comments like that which says that skin colour matters to be worthy, to be loved or to be appreciated. And if you want your thoughts and opinions heard, insulting anyone will lose the chance or lose the credibility to resolution of the issue. If you are attacking somebody, how are you going to have a discussion? If someone is going to come and name call me, I wouldn’t even talk to them as it is just rude.

You can also start contributing to the positive outlook by teaching your kids and family that this type of discrimination is wrong and needs to stop. We need to change with the changing times if we want a chance to a healthy society. But remember, change starts with ourselves.
Hope this helped. Come back tomorrow for more self love inspiration.
