A work in progress

A BLOG DEDICATED TO MOTIVATING MYSELF TO BECOME WHO I WANT TO BE, AND PROVIDE RESOURCES, MOTIVATION AND SUPPORT TO OTHERS.

One of the best guides to how to be self-loving is to give ourselves the love we are often dreaming about receiving from others.

There was a time when I felt lousy about my over-forty body, saw myself as too fat, too this, or too that. Yet I fantasized about finding a lover who would give me the gift of being loved as I am. It is silly, isn’t it, that I would dream of someone else offering to me the acceptance and affirmation I was withholding from myself. This was a moment when the maxim, ‘You can never love anybody if you are unable to love yourself.’ made clear sense. And I add, ‘Do not expect to receive the love from someone else you do not give yourself.’
