Do you love yourself?


February is Valentines’ month. We are encouraged to tell the person, or people we love just how much we love them.

Why is it so much easier to love others than ourselves? And can others love us if we don’t love and respect ourselves?

At the heart of Result CIC’s work is fostering self-belief, self-confidence and the ability to listen to ourselves and care well for ourselves. This is demonstrated in our How We Work model, above.

Our work has shown us that until people are ready to look inside and understand what is going on, they cannot fully realise their potential. As children we are more likely to get encouragement; as adults less so. Especially when we have a lot responsibilities, self-love can feel ‘frivolous’. Yet it isn’t. It is vital. Without it, we cannot be able to give of our best.

Our Social Impact Report gives several examples of this. On page 2 we summarise positive changes clients have been able to make such as feeling confident about taking new steps, discovering new networks or gaining new understanding of their situation. Pages 4 and 5 give mini-case studies. With greater confidence and appreciation of themselves, our clients have:

  • gained promotion at work
  • understood underpinning issues in their job
  • avoided leaving a job they were good at
  • discovered a better direction for themselves
  • taken control of their health and their career path.

Understanding and loving yourself is a constant work in progress. Each day, we are faced with choices. Knowing which one is best for us – then making that choice is a step on a more positive path which not only makes us feel better, it has an impact on those around us.

Coaching is one of several useful tools to boosting your understanding of yourself. If you are interested in trying coaching for yourself or your organization, contact us.
