“If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either.”
– Mandy Hale
You can always choose to focus your loving gaze first on yourself 🙂 …..and when you do so predominantly and consistently, you allow the law of attraction to match you up more with people who also appreciate you just the way you do and if you do meet someone who does not, it would not matter as you, in any case, have reconnected to that genuine love and appreciation for yourself (even before meeting that person).
Loving yourself may seem like an effort initially but as you go along, it gets easier. It’s like learning a new skill. Yes, it does require every day practice esp. initially. In the initial days, sometimes it may be easy and sometimes, it may not and that is okay. When a baby learns to walk, it does not start running the very first time. Learning to love yourself again is like that. The suggestion is to be kind and gentle with yourself while on this beautiful journey.
When you nurture and support yourself, when you honor the magnificent creation of life that you are (not vanity or arrogance as that is always from a place of fear, as Louise Hay says), you reconnect to your freedom and to your power. From this place of love and strength, you are of so much more value to yourself and to anyone else you would want to be of value to.
