Love Yourself First!
If there’s one thing we all want, it’s to feel loved.
We want to feel deeply connected to other people, fully seen and appreciated by them, and secure in those relationships. We can have a million and one acquaintances; but if none of them are true, meaningful connections, we will end up feeling alone. Research shows that we tend to value physical possessions less when we feel loved and accepted by others, because relationships can provide a sense of comfort, insurance, and protection. They truly are the most valued things in our lives.
Sometimes when we go out of our way looking for love, we’re really trying to avoid giving ourselves that feeling of love that is needed. It could be from pain from our past we don’t want to acknowledge, or there’s an emptiness inside that we don’t understand or want to fill on our own. Everyone wants and needs to be loved, but it is also important to heal and love you; before seeking love from another. In loving yourself, you bring love to yourself naturally.
Finding that special someone who will love you for you can seem tough, but it isn’t impossible, as long as it involves you being true to yourself, knowing what you want and really need in your life, and a little trust in the universe to bring your heart’s desire. Whatever you are searching for in love, a friend, a partner or just to be accepted; remember to love yourself first and you will bring love unto you out of just pure beauty and self-acceptance. Let your light shine and they will be naturally drawn to you. Your light will draw them to your heart and soul wanting and longing to be a part of you.
