Love is a strong feeling of affection. Real love is intense, passionate and unfaltering. For those we love, we go the extra mile, we accept them for who they are, and we lift them up when they are low. Imagine we loved ourselves as much as we loved others. How much more would we give? How much more would we forgive? How much more would we accept? We shouldn’t be the exception to the rule. It’s ok to share some love with ourselves. In fact, it should be mandatory. How can we expect to love someone else or for someone else to love us, before we love ourselves? We deserve the truest, realest forms of love. And it begins with ourselves.
