“Focus on loving yourself instead of loving the idea of other people loving you.”— Unknown
We so much want approval from another person that we forget that we are a person. How come we think that having self-approval is not enough? It only takes one person to believe in us and that makes a world of difference and that one person is the person we see everyday in the mirror. We know what we’re capable of doing and we have dreams about doing greater things with our lives. If we feel a need to always be the center of attention, then we haven’t been self-loving. We haven’t accepted ourselves yet. We aren’t satisfied with ourselves. If we have the capacity to accept and love others, then we have the capacity to accept and love ourselves and allow others to love us. If we continue to need constant reminders that another loves us, then it’s time to remind ourselves to love ourselves. And then we will know for sure how much love we have for others and ourselves.
