Step 1: Know that you are loveable. Feel it. Believe it.
Step 2: Find the love of your life
Step 3: Love and be loved
Step 4: Spread the love
If you skip step 1, it won’t help if you get to step 2. You will not be able to stay in step 3.
It’s hard to love and be loved if you don’t think you’re worthy of love.
Even if your partner loves you and shows it, you will not believe it.
How could you, if deep inside you don’t think you are loveable?
We are often taught that it is selfish to love and accept ourselves the way we are.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
If you don’t love yourself, you will not receive and trust someone else’s love either.
Have you ever offered love but heard from your loved one (s)he doesn't believe you?
So loving yourself is not selfish or egoistic.
It is a pre-requisite for receiving love from others and truly loving them.
You are worthy of love.
We all are.
Allow yourself to give and receive love.
Only then can you get to the important step 4 above.
PS. My husband thinks that the secret to everlasting love is great sex ;)
