There are a lot of misconceptions about soul-love that might make it difficult for you to accept that the concept is one that’s actually good for you. When people hear the term “soul-love,” they often think that it means being overly fixated on yourself or narcissistic. That’s not the case at all.
What soul-love means is simply having positive regard for yourself. It involves caring about your health, happiness, and wellbeing.
It also requires you to avoid sacrificing yourself for others or settling for less than you deserve.
These are all perfectly acceptable, even desirable, actions.
Habits of Soul-love
There are some habits you can adopt that might help you to better practice soul-love. One way to do it is to stop being so concerned with others. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care for other people. However, it does mean it’s best to stop worrying about what others think or comparing yourself to others. Instead, it’s okay to center yourself sometimes.
Also, remember it’s okay to make mistakes. Everyone does. Mistakes allow you to grow. Another habit of soul-love is to trust your own decisions. Second-guessing invalidates your feelings or worth. Finally, being kind to yourself is one of the most important habits associated with soul-love. Remember to treat yourself as kindly as you would treat someone you care about.

Ways to Cultivate Soul-love
There are some specific steps you can take to cultivate soul-love. I’ll share just a few here. For one, it’s important to pay attention to the messages you tell yourself. When you catch yourself saying something negative, take a moment to reframe that message.
For example, instead of saying, “I’ll never get the promotion,” consider changing it to a more positive statement such as, “I have the qualifications for this job, and I won’t know if I can get it unless I try.”
Another way to gain more soul-love is to engage in self-care. Eat well, take time to rest, and enjoy leisure activities.
When you feel recharged, you’re better able to manage life.
