I saw this post from Aubrey Marcus (CEO of ONNIT) on Facebook yesterday and couldn’t help but share it with you all.
“Have you ever gone to the supermarket starving, or with wicked munchies? You end up with a bunch of weird shit in your basket. This is the same as those who are desperate for love and trying to find others to satiate that desire. Often times, you will end up with something unhealthy you are taking home. So if you want to avoid dating the equivalent of Funyuns, self love is the place to start.”
Learning to love yourself is hard. What happens if you take a moment to get to know yourself and don’t like who you are? That will be painful, uncomfortable, and definitely difficult. However, that is the only way to get to the other side – self love. Spend some time alone, really getting to know who you are and what you need so you can ensure your actions align with your morals and values. The place you end up is where love is born and happiness thrives.
Without self love the partners you choose will all be loving that version of yourself you don’t even like. This is a recipe for disaster.
