“Friendships with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.”- Eleanor Roosevelt

You can’t give to people what you don’t have. If you don’t have love, you can’t give love to other people. If you don’t have happiness, you can’t make other people happy. Everything starts with you. Love starts with you. Happiness starts with you. No more, no less. So, to love other people, you must first love yourself. Yes, start with yourself. Because everything starts with you.

“Everything starts with you.”
