In lots of Self Love Circles there’s that wonderful quote that you can’t love someone else until you learn to love yourself, or that no one will love you until you love yourself. I wanted to weigh in on those thoughts. I’m pretty sure I’ve shared that sentiment in my life once or twice but the other day I really sat down and thought about it.
You don’t need to love yourself to be loved by someone else.
It’s just a really REALLY good idea. There are some really awesome people out there in the world who will love you through all of your baggage and all of your self-sabotaging and then there are the people who just add to it. Those patient, lovely, healing souls – they’re rare and the mistake that we make is thinking that everyone we love will want to fix us, or be equipped to help us fix ourselves.
