To Me, Love Is Loving Yourself FirstI have different outlook from most of people regarding love.
For me, love is not something that I can find in other human being.
Love is something that I have to reach out from deep within me. I think love is more in the sense be able to give your love freely to other and acknowledge the love from other.
And in order to do that, first and foremost, I should loving myself.
Of course I don’t mean it in selfish or narcissistic way, that would be too extreme
What I mean with loving myself is by cherishing all these gifts that blessed to me, and sharing them to the world, or at the very least people who know me.
Loving myself by forgiving all my flaws and mistakes, and knowing that I could be better, that I could do better.
Loving myself by discovering beauty in everyday life, and be grateful for them.
Loving myself by celebrate all fond memories and joy, and recognize the lesson behind the hardship, and then move on with much more grace and wisdom than before.
Love is loving yourself first. That is how I define love.
I'm still working on it, and I think it would take a lifetime to work on it, but its a work that would reward me so much so I'm happy to do it.
Of course, it would be nice if I found my own Prince Charming, the man that I can lean to when life get rough, someday...maybe.
For now, I’m content for being on my own, though.
The way I see it, as long as I love myself, I have all the love in the world
