Greetings Happy People,
"Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all."
George Benson told us this message.
Whitney Houston also told us this message too.
What does this mean?
To simply put it, in order to love others you first have to love yourself. Not in a self-centered conceited type of way. But in a way that shows care, dignity, self-respect, and admiration for that person you see in the mirror.
It can be a simple thing to grasp, but we make it difficult.
I have seen people that have not fully loved themselves. Instead, they look for love in other places. They look for love in drugs. They look for love in alcohol. They look for love in other people and other material things. No matter where they claim to find this love, it can easily go away and they think that they are left with nothing. This is not true!!
I also see people that sell themselves for less than face value. The type of people that look for love by way of dressing themselves in ways that attracts the wrong people in their lives. This is not true love!! Instead, it can send the wrong message about themselves to other people. Sooner or later, that type of exterior will wear out. One is better to show what they have inside rather than what they got outside.
Inner beauty still matters!!
In order to love ourselves, we must look at ourselves. Where do we stand? How do we see ourselves? Is it something that we love or something that could be improved upon? Only we hold that answer within ourselves. Are people capable of loving themselves to the best ability? I believe so!! Sometimes all it takes is to find the one thing that makes us beautiful. After that, we can find another, and another, and another!!
Learning to love yourself IS the greatest love of all!! All we have to do is never forget that!! And if by chance that special place that you've been dreaming of, leads you to a lonely place - find your strength in love!!
That is all I have for now. Take care and thank you for your time and attention.
