How can you really love someone else if you don't even love yourself?

At some point in everyone's lives, especially when one is in love, there are those moments when you would do just about anything to make the person you desire happy. Which is the way it should be unless the relationship is one sided and far from reciprocal. When it comes to a point where you're doing all of the work to sustain it, while the other party knowing how you feel about them, willingly lets you make a fool of yourself. But do you see this when your that deep in love? Of course not. You point the finger at yourself and find fault with everything you do. You say maybe if I were prettier, smarter, worked a little harder at showing them how much I really love them, then maybe they will love me back with the same fierceness. This is far from the truth, since once they tire of playing games with your heart, they walk away leaving someone else to wipe away your tears and deal with your broken heart,with taking wounds from the past into your next romantic relationship, and ultimately accepting the same behavior you experienced before. When you love yourself, settling for less than you deserve is not an option. Dealing with someone disregarding your feelings will not be tolerated. If and when you choose to love someone and you see that you are giving far more than you are getting back, you don't hesitate to walk away because you know your self worth. It's not that you think you're better than the other person, it's the fact that you love yourself and know you wouldn't treat yourself with disrespect or disregard for your feelings, so why allow someone else to do it? If you love yourself, then you know where you stand in getting the love you want and not a love that you think you need.You always have a choice to accept and love yourself just the way you are, and never compromise that in order for someone to love you. Because when you have to do that, is their love worth having in the first place?
