Why It Is So Important To Love Yourself

 When we speak of love, we think of others and what they mean to us; we think of those we love. We do not, however, delve into what we think of ourselves and if we love the most important person to us, ourselves.

When we say to ourselves that we are loved, that the love we crave is given to ourselves by us, it gives us a sense of peace. No longer do we have to find it in such a hurry somewhere…
