Recently I’ve realized that I give too much love to the people around me and forgetting to love the most important person, me.
Yes it may sound narcissistic but at the end of the day, we’re all alone. The essence of our being, the very core of ourselves, is not accessible by anyone. This is the part we need to start paying attention to. This is the part that needs the most attention and love.
I thought that I’d need someone to be there, a companion or partner to share my thoughts and struggles with. I forgot how much inner strength I have and realized that I’d stopped loving myself.
Lost by putting all my love in other things, in someone else.
So I’ve started falling in love with myself again. It’s hard work and takes time, but I’m getting there.
When I do eventually find a partner, I’d know that I don’t need their love but that their love complements the affection that I have for myself. That when I tell people I love them I remind myself that it should not take away the love I have for myself.
