If you don't love YOU, you can't love anyone else
Do you really, truly love yourself?
“To say 'I love you' one must first be able to say the 'I'.” ---Ayn Rand
Rand touches on a point that is worth exploring. You have to know and love YOU before even trying to love anyone else.
Have you said any of these things to yourself:
“I’m never going to get over this break up.”
“I can’t believe this happened... again.”
“I don’t want to just be friends. I want this person now!”
“I’m sick of playing games. I just want people to be real.”
“Maybe I need to focus on my career right now. Love can wait.”
It’s as if you have tried EVERYTHING to find that one person that loves you, and no matter what you do, you can't find love.
Well, here's a little secret about attraction:
Learning how to love yourself is
the foundation of any love relationship.
If you don't love YOU, you can't love anyone else. Period.
The most important person in your life is you.
The person who you love the most in the world should be you!
Who better than you?
"YOU" are the one person you have to spend every waking moment of your life with. "YOU" are the only person who will be there for you when no one else is. "YOU" are all you have no matter what.
When you First Love YOU, you will give yourself what you need.
You will become highly attractive to others because you are coming to them out of wholeness, not out of a repulsive neediness.
You will be able to have fulfilling relationships, and you will have no problem ending relationships which don't serve your growth.
The concept is simple, though it isn't easy to learn how to love yourself. It's going to take some hard work. Are you ready for it?
By becoming self-mindful, taking it step-by-step, and developing self-confidence, you can increase your overall happiness in love and life!
All you have to do is FIRST LOVE YOU and everything else will fall into place.
