Most people believe that the only way to have more love is to get it from other people. This is not how it works.
The most important relationship in your life is your relationship to yourself – if you don’t love yourself then this affects all your relationships.
Most of us have grown up believing that love of self is wrong, selfish, self-centred, and the right thing is to be trying to love other people and to forget about self.
However, if you don’t learn to love yourself then your need for love becomes central and you keep looking for this outside of self and trying to fulfil this need.
Only when you learn to love yourself will you be truly able to receive the love of others and your whole experience of loving others will be very different too.
