“Love, Love, Love – All You Need Is Love”, The Beatles

A thought on love as we approach Valentine’s Day, for those in the “I Haven’t Met You Yet”*(or have you?) category

A healthy relationship begins with a healthy relationship with one self. If you don’t love yourself, then how can you love another? If you don’t love yourself, then you won’t allow another to love you and why would they want to. If you can’t see your inner beauty/soul, then you won’t let someone else in, even if they do see it. If you can’t see yours, how can you see that of another?

Begin by recognizing and constantly remembering that you have value and you matter. You are here, for a specific purpose and mission that only you can fulfill. Never forget that. When you truly internalize and believe that, you will love yourself and be sunshine.

Try this exercise

Take an honest personal inventory and ask yourself why someone would want to be with you. When you have made that list, ask yourself if you would want to be with you. What character traits and qualities of another are attractive to you? You possess those, but do you exhibit those?

 “If I am not for myself, who will be for me. And if I am only for myself, of what good am I.” Hillel – Ethics of Fathers 1:14

Sing along

“Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be you, in time it’s easy. All you need is love, all you need is love, …” – The Beatles, John Lennon and Paul McCartney
