I used to have a column on the Culture of Awareness called ‘Love Yourself’ in which I shared a few words on confidence, self-love, empowerment, and other similar topics. I encouraged readers to focus on loving and accepting themselves before trying to help others, because in my opinion, we’ll be miserable if we try so hard to help the world that we don’t help ourselves.
Love and service to oneself is as important as the love given to the world, and some spiritual people have unintentionally become martyrs by focusing more on the world’s problems than their own. In doing so, they’ve ignored their own issues and caused a blockage to form between themselves and the higher, more carefree state of being they seek.
