“Happiness means loving yourself and being less concerned with the approval of others.”
I’m sure we all know the Golden Rule: ‘Love your neighbors as you love yourself’. Our ability to love others directly depends on our ability to love our self. Loving oneself forms a foundation and the strength of this foundation equals the strength of all our relationships. You cannot give something you do not have.
We are our own worst critics and our inner critic is never satisfied. It’s too busy comparing us with others and because we are all individually different, we never measure up. Most of us look for love from partners and friends and miss out on falling in love with ourselves.
You know how you get to know someone and love them? Well, you’re no different. Take the time to really appreciate yourself and you’ll discover a source of love that never runs out. We are mostly always alone with ourselves and our thoughts, find the time to appreciate the beauty that radiates from within…it’s the best kind of love.
It is important that you cut the negativity out of your life and take the time to see that amazing thing others see in you and fall in love with. Search within, get to know yourself more, fall in love with yourself and loving others will come naturally.
Imagine being with someone (yourself) who loves you bunkers every minute of everyday…
