Can You Learn To Love Yourself?
What is love? Love is a group of human behaviors and emotions characterized by emotional intimacy, love, romance, commitment, and receptivity. It includes compassion, care, emotional proximity, protection, adoration, trust, intimacy, affection, and sharing. Love can range from mild to intense love and may vary over time. Regardless of our original situation, love brings us happiness and helps us grow as people.
One common mistake that many people make when they are trying to find the love they are longing for is that they are too focused on others’ opinions or needs instead of following their own heart. It’s okay to say yes to someone you really want to spend time with, but ultimately saying yes is not enough. This is why successful people have said yes to others and followed through on those wishes. Yes to others comes after saying no to others. Yes to others can lead you to success, but only if you follow your heart and do what is necessary to reach your goal.
In order to find your own level of love, you need to begin to understand love and relationships in a deeper sense. Love is about much more than physical attraction or being in love. It’s about being open and available to another person even though that person is someone we have never met or are not familiar with. It’s about respecting and loving another person for who he/she is, regardless of how that person acts toward us. It is about creating success in a world full of success.
It is easier to fall in love with someone who you think you can trust, because you trust them. However, loving someone comes after you have opened yourself up to that person. If you have been programmed from birth to be attracted to certain characteristics, traits, or behaviors, then you will have a difficult time falling in love with someone else. If you were raised in a home where love was not given freely, then you may struggle to open yourself up to another person’s love.
You may feel that you are unlovable or that you are just not interesting enough to have a partner. However, this is not true. People are not born with qualities or characteristics that make a person interesting. People who feel unloved and uninteresting are usually those who have been conditioned by society to feel that way. Society has created a notion of the “perfect partner,” so if you find that you are not that partner, then why should someone else want to get into a serious relationship with you?
So learn to love yourself first. Think about all the great things you have learned about yourself and share these with others. Then discover who you really are, both inside and out. That person is out there and you can learn to love her/him. With enough time you will find that you are not looking for love in others but for yourself.
