We often speak of the importance of loving yourself first in order to have a satisfying love relationship with another. Of course you understand that you must hold what you desire in order to draw it to you.
But another aspect you may not have thought of is this. If you do not love yourself – if you see yourself as flawed, unworthy, less than – you will immediately distrust and not respect anyone who does love you.
Taking the time to get to know yourself, to love and accept yourself in your tender truth and beingness, will open you up to truly being loved. You will finally be on the same page with others – the page of deep, true, and abiding love. ~Archangel Gabriel
