In the hustle and bustle of today's life where new innovations happen, new records are made, where everyone aims for the sky, sometimes we find ourselves at a pit stop where we feel like our efforts are not good enough or we aren't good enough. Humans often tend to underestimate themselves to a point where they begin to doubt if they are good enough. Self doubt is something that every human goes through at some point of their life but that is where self love comes in.
A cut throat competition to achieve anything , going to any lengths to taste success is the kind of world we live in. If you lose yourself in the process of achieving something it will be of no good. The most important thing in life is self love because when the world turns it's back on you, the only person you can turn to is you. Having friends and family can only help you to a certain extent but it is you who lives your life and if you don't root for yourself you cannot expect others to do so for you. Self love protects you from the harsh realities of the world, it keeps you motivated, it helps you to continue even during the toughest of times.
Experiencing self doubt is natural and nothing to be ashamed of. People sometimes think that it is a sign of weakness but it is not. Admitting that you go through it, is itself a sign that you are strong enough to acknowledge it and tackle it. The best way to get rid of self doubt is to take a day off and relax. It gives you time to clear your head. Reading a good book or writing your feelings down can help too. Sometimes it becomes too much to take in and a break from all the stress becomes necessary. Life is supposed to be lived, don't take everything too seriously and try to make the most of it. All in all, self doubt is an enemy that is created by our mind so it is only our mind that can destroy that. And about self love, I think that it acts as a sheild when the monster that is self doubt attacks you. So shield yourself or may I say love yourself.
