often we find ourselves waiting for love to come find us but that’s where the we go wrong. we forget that the first step to love is self-love. if we’re not able to love ourselves, how do we expect ourselves to fully love another, or be loved by another? imagine if you hate yourself because of your flaws and someone told you that they love you. most likely your insecurities wouldn’t want to believe them because well, you’re insecure. now imagine if you accepted your flaws and loved them, maybe it wouldn’t be so difficult for you to accept it when someone tells you that they love you, because you believed in yourself first. you loved yourself first.
