We’ve all heard the saying “You have to love yourself first before you can love someone else.” And yet we still don’t fully understand what that means. Many times we always say how we love ourselves and that we are ready to love someone else. But then we turn around and we bash ourselves for the smallest mistakes we’ve made. If something doesn’t go as planned we blame ourselves for it over and over, and if someone mistreats us we say that we deserved it , and how it was all our fault. You can’t live your life like that and you can’t expect to love someone when you don’t even love yourself. You are basically giving that person 50% of yourself rather than all of you. You got to learn to love yourself, take yourself out to eat, buy stuff that make you feel good rather than buy it to impress someone else, build healthy habits for yourself, do things that you love to do for yourself. I believe that whatever energy you put into yourself, that’s the same energy you will put into someone else whether it’s negative, or positive. You are the one who decides that.
“To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.”~ Robert Morley
