There is nothing quite like the feeling of being in love. Love is uplifting and sometimes all consuming. We truly do crazy things for love. We also lose love, and it deeply deeply hurts. Sometimes we wonder where that love goes, and what kind of person will we love next? There is one relationship, though, where the love should never go away. That is the relationship you have with yourself.
You may find yourself to be one of those people that always has to be in love. So much so, that you never give any time to truly embrace a relationship with yourself. It’s an important thing to be able to stand being alone. Loneliness, much like love, can be all-consuming. Loneliness also hurts, and make you feel desperate. However, when you learn to love yourself, being alone is never truly lonely.
Despite the connections we make with other human beings, at the end of the day we only have ourselves. If you look in the mirror, do you like the person who is staring back at you? Do you love the person staring back at you? If you answered no, then it’s probably time to focus on cultivating a relationship with yourself.
