Most women have been conditioned to believe that self-love is selfish and that self-sacrifice is a virtue. Therefore they do everything for everyone else and are disappointed when they don’t get back what they give and are left drained and exhausted. Entrepreneur, speaker and single mom Jenna Banks has set out to crush these myths about how we should relate to ourselves in her new book “I Love Me More: How To Find Happiness and Success Through Self-Love.”
I could not put this book down – highlighting and dog-earring many of the pages. It’s a book I feel every woman needs to read. Join me as I sit down to talk to Jenna about how to truly love ourselves. And by that she means loving yourself more than anyone else – more than your spouse, more than your kids, more than your family and more than your friends. Seems a bit narcissistic? It’s not! Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship you will ever have.
In this episode we discuss what made Jenna write this book, how you can love yourself more than anyone else without seeming narcissistic, how a mother can put herself before her children (which can seem counter-intuitive), signs that you are lacking self-love, the difference between self-love and self-care, how we can start loving ourselves TODAY, how we turn off that inner critic and become our own cheerleaders and how to recognize and cut off an energy vampire.
