Far too many people spend their entire lifetime looking for the love of their life. When in reality all they really had to do was look on the mirror. While it is true some people have self worth issues, the lesson is the way you love yourself is the way others will love you as well.
Far too many people say that until you love yourself that other truly can't love you. I tend to disagree with that. As we were young once, it is our parents, family and community that often gives us our value. Nature, nurture or product of our environment? That is the true point of origin of self love or neglect.
Far too many people say that you have to go through hell to appreciate heaven. While that maybe true for many, some of the most inspirational people that I have met didn't see times as neither good nor bad. They just saw it as life, realizing that life didn't stop for circumstances.
Far too many people these days are denying that God exists. Doesn't make them bad people. They're people like both you and I. I can't explain why God exist for me. For I too, am like far too many people looking in the mirror, learning that self love is the way home.
