Few people know the value of self-love. Unfortunately, too many equate self-love with selfishness and narcissism. Leslie Leong authored Self-Love Agreements: Renew Your Mind & Renew Your Life to correct these misunderstandings and to encourage healthy self-love. Leslie reminds us that if we expect others to love us, we must first love ourselves. Self-love is also the basis for genuinely loving others. Self-love is the ability to recognize the worth and value of self and to nourish yourself. Even Jesus Christ said to love others as you love yourself. Therefore, it is imperative to properly love yourself. Leslie shows how to love yourself without being self-centered. Loving yourself involves proper self-care. Since you can’t change the past and no one knows the future, it is wise to live in the present. Leslie teaches you how to do that. Reading this book will teach you all sorts of skills to take care of yourself with appropriate love.

Leslie Leong does not just dish out advice. In Self-Love Agreements, he explains how to put his advice to practical use. From forgiving oneself to living in the moment, Leslie writes in a way that draws his reader in and motivates them to put his advice into action. In addition, when the text requires psychological jargon, Leslie carefully explains the terms so laymen can understand. This book is not a preachy type of lecture, but it is a friend walking alongside the reader to aid them in navigating the path. When we feel better about ourselves, it shows in self-confidence and increased production. Leslie wants to help his readers develop a strong self-image and give them assistance along the way. Leslie suggests specific actions, but he also explains why those actions are necessary and how they work.

Self-Love Agreements is a short self-help book written by Leslie Leong showcasing the importance and need for self-love to live a fulfilling life. Leslie Leong provides a set of easy-to-use techniques to help readers discover their self-worth to build upon their self-esteem and be more confident in their lives. Through a series of meticulously thought-out guidelines, Leong explores the ways to enrich one's life. The author emphasizes the need to establish boundaries, to set clear limits to one's space. There is also the evaluation of self-doubt, which goes against the very nature of self-love. Simple everyday activities go a long way in raising one's self-esteem, such as yoga, walking mindfully with purpose, visualizing your daily goals, keeping a journal, reviewing your day, and keeping yourself busy with healthy activities.

Author Leslie Leong provides a concise self-help handbook filled with easy-to-use guidelines to help the reader become more self-compassionate and discover their self-worth. Self-Love Agreements is a book that everyone should have on their coffee tables. The most impressive aspect of this set of guidelines is that every single one of them can be utilized in everyday life without spending many resources or taking up too much space. It's more about your approach to life. The last chapter is dedicated to affirmations and manifestations that should particularly appeal to readers who have prior experience. These approaches can help people from all walks of life, regardless of gender, race, religion, socio-economic background, etc., and at every stage of their lives. If you're feeling insecure or short of self-worth, check out Self-Love Agreements.

Self-Love Agreements: Renew Your Mind & Renew Your Life by Leslie Leong is a self-help book for those in a position where the gravitational importance of loving ourselves is obscured by doubt, blame, and an inability to forgive. Broken down into eight distinct and interconnected chapters, Leong leads the way to a reinvigoration of the soul with topics that include, but are not limited to, what self-love is and why it is necessary, overcoming doubt, having compassion within ourselves, and what that truly means, living in the present, forgiving ourselves and others, relationships and doing what you love, and affirmations and being mindful, among many other things.

Self-love is something I have neglected for a long time, and Leslie Leong's Self-Love Agreements landed in my lap at the perfect moment. I had pushed it aside, believing that you really do have to be in a place where you are ready to allow yourself to make positive changes from within, but the reality is that most of us will never allow ourselves to find a state of readiness at all. This is where Leong is able to help. Pick up the book and allow yourself. Allow yourself to start just by reading one chapter at a time, one step at a time. I was moved the most by the section on relationship significance and surrounding myself with positive individuals, particularly those with a sense of humor. I agree to consciously seek them out and commit myself to being the same type of friend to others. This is a wonderful book and I am so happy to have found it.
