You can never love anyone the right way unless you learn to truly love yourself. Self love is truly loving yourself. When you start to love yourself, then it shows you and teaches you to never discount yourself. You also teach others to love you when you love yourself. When you live each day, you learn the importance of why you are here--the reason you're living. When you learn to love you,you won't allow anyone to treat you any kind of way,you demand respect, and anyone that costs you too much--you learn to let go. You learn not to care who does not like you because those who love you--will. Those who are meant for you will be there.Never stop loving you to love someone else. Never dumb yourself down to get others to love you. They will be there and if someone can't love you with respect--then it's already costing you too much.
