Love yourself enough

To be willing to believe

That you’re lovable

Because then you can

Be the one who loves you more

Than anyone else

For when this happens

You will be forever free

Of other’s control

This allows you to

Live in peace and happiness

And eternal love

  2. If we are not loving ourselves enough, then loving others doesn’t have anything solid to stand on.

  3. Gosh, how I love that! As long as we believe that our worth depends on other people’s love we will always be a prisoner of our search for love, not knowing that we hold it all inside! 💖

  4. People around me always talk about finding love in others- and I wonder why they never try to find it in themselves. It’s where we all start: because only when you find love in yourself, can you recognize it in others.

    Lovely piece, thanks for sharing 🙂
