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.
