Self-Love: the Best Love

Story by Gabby Parreno, Reporter

Everybody wants a healthy happy life. There are so many ways to meet those expectations. A big key in life is having confidence and self-love. You can’t love anybody else until you love yourself.

“It is good to have self-confidence. I think you would have a more positive life if you loved yourself,” junior Stephanie Escamilla said.

With confidence, there’s no stopping you. You have this glow. Going out knowing you look good, there’s no better feeling than that.

The most annoying thing is having confidence and people mistaking it for “she’s so full of herself, she’s so arrogant.”

Escamilla said, “I don’t rub it in people’s faces that I love myself. It’s not bad to tell myself or even other people every now and then I think I look pretty. People take it the wrong way because people are so insecure now a days so they look at that as me being cocky.”

Modern society has a perspective on the way you should look. Some men are even very picky. Society expects a female to be a good height, flat stomach, curvy, small waist, wears little to no makeup and be flawless. Even some men think like this. They have all these crazy expectations. Every size and every color is beautiful!

“Not loving yourself I personally think is weird. You have to love yourself to be happy in life,” junior Chrislores Nomura said.

Nobody should be able to make you feel less than you’re worth. Once you love yourself you come to the realization your worth is something crazy. Always make people respect you more than you feel you deserve.

If you’re not happy with yourself nobody can change that but you. Friends and family can help to get on you but at the end of the day you’re the one that’s going to be altimetry making that change. Whether its weight, wardrobe, appearance, anything. There’s so many different insecurities.

Makeup is such a problem in this society. People knock down women for wearing it all the time. If that is something that makes you feel better about yourself and feel prettier, then wear as much as you please. Do not let other peoples perspective on things change your outlook.

This world is a very judgmental place. That’s where you have to stay strong and stand your ground. Never let anybody put you down. It’s your time. Have faith and confidence in yourself and see how much more you achieve and how much of a good aura you will have.

Self-love is definitely the most important love. Once you have that confidence you will feel amazing about yourself. The feeling is unstoppable. It’s the key to a healthy happy life.
