Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

The theme this week is summed up in the title of one of the articles: "Be The Love Of Your Life and Get Ready To Be Happy!" as well as in "Why You ABSOLUTELY Must Love Yourself And How You Can Do It". Regular InnerSelf contributor AJ Earley reminds us that "True Happiness Depends On Never Compromising These Three Things" and Jude Bijou shares "How To Use The Three Bridges to Create Joy, Love, and Peace".

Jill Lublin writes about "The Irony of Thanks: If You Want To Be Happy, Be Grateful" and Sam Bennett gives great pointers on getting clear of a clutter mindset in "The 7 Kinds of Clutter Nobody Ever Talks About".

And of course we have numerous additional articles (45 of them) dealing with a variety of topics such as: autism, antibiotic resistance, community, cybersecurity, diversity, diets and Instagram, diabetes, education, gut microbes, the science of laughter, and much more.

Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Written by Ash Stevens.

Why You ABSOLUTELY Must Love Yourself And How You Can Do It

When I first heard of the concept of Self Love, I laughed out loud. I was sure it was the most pretentious and ridiculous idea I’d ever heard. I ridiculed the concept for a good long minute and gave it hell. Then I went back to despising myself (that was so much more “humble” and “honorable”).

The 7 Kinds of Clutter Nobody Ever Talks About

Written by Sam Bennett.

The 7 Kinds of Clutter Nobody Ever Talks About

Much of the advice about getting rid of clutter seems to start with the cheerfully abrupt command to “Just do it!” But when you can’t identify the underlying beliefs that are causing you to become buried in clut­ter, that’s almost impossible.
