If you’re single:
Self-love is key to your dating life. It sets the standards for what you will and won’t accept and it relieves your dating anxieties.
When should I call? What should I say? Do I sound desperate?
When you love yourself, when you are genuinely nice to yourself with your words, thoughts and actions, you won’t have these kinds of doubts. And you’ll naturally strike the balance of showing your interest, without chasing someone.
Because you’ve filled your own cup with your own love and you’re not thirsty for anyone else’s attention. You’ll show your interest from a genuine place without implying you need that person to validate you. You’re not waiting for them to be the “one”, because you’ve already got her.
If you’re in a relationship:
You will see a direct correlation between the flow and harmony in your relationship and the way you’re feeling on the inside.
When you’re stressed out, feeling disconnected to yourself and being hard on yourself, your relationship will suffer. When you’re being good to yourself, mind, body and spirit, your relationship will thrive.
Always remember the concept of your relationship as a mirror and ask yourself:
What is my relationship reflecting?
If you don’t like what you see, ask yourself:
How can I be more loving towards myself?
The love you want from someone else, always starts with you.
