Self love is the biggest gift that we can give ourselves. We can often find ourselves looking for love from anywhere, but from ourselves. We try to seek validation from our partners, our jobs, society, parents, and many other outlets. Unfortunately most of the places we turn to are incapable of offering us complete approval and unconditional love. We find that the void simply cannot be filled, until we finally accept that the unconditional love we seek can only come from within ourselves.

This episode of Omar Pinto Coaching, starts with Omar and Patrick’s discussion on how to navigate Patrick’s one year anniversary. It later turns into Omar teaching the group not only the importance, but also  how to achieve self acceptance and self love. Tune in to hear how to stop looking from outside validation and start receiving love from within.
