Before falling in love with someone
learn to love yourself

Before being happy with someone
learn to be happy on your own

Before caring for someone
learn to care for yourself

Before being comfortable with someone
learn to be comfortable on your own

Before considering someone important
learn that the most important person in your life is YOU

Only once you have learnt to unconditionally love your life and yourself, you are ready to love someone else. And the right love will come to you.

Very nice and very true. Though, sometimes it can be hard to do.

This is very true Amira. I think though that sometimes, no matter how much we love ourselves, there will always be someone out there we love, that won't love us back, for whatever reason. It doesn't always have to be about us. Sometimes it is THEM!

Anyway, even though you wrote this many moons ago, I still wanted to wish you and your loved ones a very happy holiday.

All the best,
~ Sara
