    Sex up your love life with self-love

    There’s a potent catalyst for igniting your love life, and it isn't nestled in a risqué movie scene or the pages of an erotic novel. In fact, it’s inside of you. And it's called self-love. 

    Societal expectations, mainstream culture, and unrealistic beauty norms often deprive women of their ability to appreciate their bodies. Let’s counteract these pressures and reclaim the empowerment that self-love can yield.

    Self-love transcends mere physical appeal; it means embracing your individuality and distinctiveness. Your body narrates the story of your life. It may exhibit stretch marks signifying the journey of motherhood or scars that reflect health battles. These so-called imperfections shouldn’t be concealed – they’re badges of honor!

    Unwavering self-love, when radiated outward, materializes as confidence. The allure of a woman who is comfortable in her skin is priceless. This confidence communicates a formidable message to your partner: behold a woman who recognizes her worth, loves herself, and isn't apprehensive about expressing it. This allure is magnetic and enchanting, creating the perfect atmosphere for passion and intimacy.

    But you can’t achieve self-love with a snap of the fingers. It's a journey that requires patience, empathy, and diligence. To lay this foundation, you have to reinterpret internal narratives, contest long-standing beliefs, and embrace vulnerability. The path may be challenging, but the reward is invaluable: a deep sense of self-worth that remains unswayed by societal pressure.

    So, where to begin?

    You can start your self-love journey with small affirmations, and by celebrating your body every day. Pay yourself compliments in the mirror, adorn your body in a manner that makes you feel gorgeous, and do activities that enhance your self-esteem. Journal your thoughts to hone introspection. Remember, there’s no “perfect” body – only one you can respect (and you’re in it)!

    With self-love comes self-assuredness, a trait that smooths the path for open, honest, and satisfying sexual experiences. So, let's bid farewell to the insecurities and misconceptions that hinder us from enjoying the sexual satisfaction we rightfully deserve.

    Habitual self-love makes it easier to understand what it takes to build sexual satisfaction in your marriage, which we’ll unpack in the next section.

    Great app. Good selection of book summaries you can read or listen to while commuting. Instead of scrolling through your social media news feed, this is a much better way to spend your spare time in my opinion.
