Finding Love AgainSometimes, I truly am afraid.... that I may never find "True Love" again. So I decided to find out what "True Love" was really all about. After much soul searching, reading, studying, and talking to others, I began to realize that just about everyone has a different viewpoint or idea regarding this topic. I began looking within myself and GOD for the answer. I took all of the things I have learned over time and started working on Loving MYSELF.
I challenge you to do the same and see what happens. I began having a "Love Affair" with myself. It sounds so silly... but now I finally understand what people mean when they say " If you don't Love Yourself, you can't Love anyone else". Love has different meanings to just about everyone I know. Here is the truth about Love. "LOVE" is a feeling, an emotion that that we have no control over. We CANNOT control how we feel !!!... We can ONLY CONTROL what we do ABOUT the way we feel. We also cannot FORCE anyone to love us just because we FEEL we are in
love or love another person. To try and force another person to love us back would only be futile and lead to our own UNHAPPINESS and PAIN.
When you begin practicing the art of LOVING YOURSELF, you begin taking care of yourself. You begin to truly know who you are, what you like and what you don't. You learn to fulfill your own happiness and no longer feel lonely because you Love who you are and you begin honoring yourself and all of the life experiences that have shaped you into the beautiful person that you are today.
You soon learn that you don't NEED someone else to love you because the Love you have for yourself is enough. You begin establishing boundaries for yourself and you do not allow ANYONE to cross over the " HEALTHY" boundaries that you have soon learned to create for yourself. You learn to NEVER allow ANYONE to love you LESS than you love yourself. You no longer feel dependent on being happy or feeling loved ba
Healthy people with INTEGRITY, morals, standards, values, love for themselves and others WILL ATTRACT PEOPLE OF THE SAME LIKE-MINDEDNESS. Healthy minded people take responsibility for how they feel and the choices that they make ! LOVE is ba
If someone truly loves you they will take all the time in the world to get to know you. They will like you and love you UNCONDITIONALLY !!! WITH NO EXPECTATIONS. They will not force you to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. NEVER allow anyone to demean you or tell you that you are being ridiculous for setting your standards so high. Hold your head up high and NEVER SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN YOUR HEARTS DESIRE !
You will find TRUE LOVE again and before you know it, you will be laughing and dancing again !
