“Love is a connector. It brings things together.”
The best love is self-love. Do not wait for people to love you before you love yourself. Love yourself first, then people will love you. If you don’t love yourself, no one will love you.
It is not a bad thing to love yourself. It is not a selfish thing to do at all. Life starts with self-love. If you don’t love yourself, who will? I don’t know.
“If you don’t love yourself, who will?”
You will never lose by loving yourself. You will never lose by loving other people. You will lose everything in life if you don’t have the courage to love yourself. You will lose everything if you don’t love other people. They need your love, and you need their love, too.
Barbara De Angelis said, “Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.” When you love people, you are loving yourself. When you love people, you are blessing yourself. Love. Just love.
Love is a connector. No matter what people have done to you, do not hate them, love them. Love and hate cannot coexist. Where there is hate, love disappears. Where there is hate, nothing prospers. Where there is hate, nothing grows. Where there is hate, people perish. But where there is love, people connect. Where there is love, people bring out the best in themselves. Where we have love, there is life.
No matter what people have done to you, practice love and kindness. Because love heals. In his book The Freedom of Forgiveness, David Augsburger wrote, “Love heals. Love encourages. Love protects. Love looks for the best in others so that others may be their best.” Love focuses on strengths, not weaknesses.
Love is life. If you want to have peace of mind, love yourself. If you don’t love yourself, you can’t love others. Because you can’t give what you don’t have. If you have love, you will be able to give love to other people. But if you have never known love, you won’t be able to give love.
Love yourself, and people will love you.
Recruit the best love!
