So many years of education, yet nobody ever taught us how to love ourselves and why it’s so important. ”I’m sure by now, if you follow my articles, you would have realised how vital “self-love” is to me. It wasn’t until I began to research and read books on self-improvement and self-development that I realised how much not loving oneself can affect every aspect of one’s life. You might think “ well, I love myself” but it is more profound than just saying those words. The truth is you can never be happy with yourself, you can never feel fulfilled in this life if you do not love yourself. I realised there was a gap, especially in women and girls, which was the reason I founded The Women International (TWI). To raise awareness on why it is essential and crucial for us, women love ourselves to live a happy and purpose-driven life that is meaningful and impactful to our society. TWI is focused on promoting the importance of self-improvement and personal development through self-love. Our women include students, entrepreneurs, professionals, and housewives who encourage, support, develop, and motivate each other to hunger for greatness in all aspects of their lives to reach their purpose, goals and full potential. Self-improvement is something that many women struggle with daily. We, at TWI, believe that every woman should continuously work on becoming the best version of herself. There is always something in our life that we feel needs improvement. However, a lot of us women lack the willpower or motivation to do so. One of the many ways in which TWI intends on assisting women in the beginning to improve themselves is to raise awareness on the importance of “Self-Love. ”Women and girls indeed have more equality and self-esteem than ever before. However, something hasn’t changed, and that something is “self-love”. At the same time, self-confidence is something we want in every woman and girl, knowing they can do anything and be who they want to be. Stop women and girls from beating themselves up, putting themselves into abusive relationships or hating and destroying their bodies. Today in the 21st century, these are the facts:1 in 3 women will be in an abusive relationship before the age of 20. 80% will return.1 in 3 women will be sexually abused4 of 5 girls will think about dieting before JS1Almost 1 out of 2 women will suffer through a divorce. 20% in the first 5 years of marriage.80% of women are so exhausted that they are headed for extreme adrenal gland fatigue. Women surveyed today are no happier than women surveyed in 1970, even though they have more equality, self-esteem and freedom. If you ever believed that self-love was a luxury think again. The repercussions of not having it and worse, not teaching our daughters are serious. Today while some people do understand the power of self-love because they have experienced its life-changing effects, self-love still elicits definitions like narcissism, conceit, vanity, selfishness, and others. In a world where so many girls and women experience unnecessary suffering, not using the power of self-love will simply not do! Join the team at TWI to conquer the fear of believing you are not good enough and raising awareness on the importance of “self-love” we want every woman to know that. YOU are ENOUGH, and YOU are BEAUTIFUL just the way YOU are. We want every woman to know and believe that they can accomplish anything they set their mind to with hard work and dedication. Love yourself enough to know that you are worthy. Begin to practice self-love and see how your life will change for the better.
