Loving yourself before you love others.
Many of us just want to be loved.
The problem is, we forget to love ourselves. We cannot expect someone to commit to us if we are not devoted to ourselves. We cannot hope for someone to support us if we don’t have faith in ourselves. We cannot wish for security and laughter and jealous fights if we do not believe that we deserve it. We cannot be honest with our significant other if we lie to ourselves. Our partner cannot take care of us if we don’t know how to heal our own wounds. Our partner cannot make us feel confident if we are deeply insecure. Our partner will not believe in us if we do not believe in us. We have to be committed to who we are as human beings. We need to support our hopes and dreams. Strive to be the best we can be. We have to learn how to take care of ourselves before we let anyone else try. Only we can free ourselves from insecurities. We have to learn to identify our flaws and get over our regrets. You cannot expect someone to love you if you do not love yourself. Live a little, learn more about yourself and start smiling; gain a greater understanding of who you want to be and love that person. Happiness needs to be your biggest project and it only requires one set of hands: your own. -West office
