To love yourself means also to , whatever your work is, do it without moaning that you do not love it.
Here are a few tips on how to love yourself.
You are the most important person in the world. Not only for yourself, but for many people around you. Be aware of this importance and say thanks.

Then forgive yourself for things you forgot to carry out or did not do to your satisfaction.
The third step is to promise to yourself that the next day you will carry out at least five tasks. These may be tasks that you have postponed for a certain time but they may also include tasks that are new and you have never done them before.
The last step is to smile and tell yourself, that you love and accept yourself as you are.
You are lovable. You are ok. Just accept yourself.
Do this exercise every single day. You will see that your life will change accordingly.
