“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” (Oscar Wilde)
I saw this quote a few years back right at the height of my healing journey when I was turning things around with my health and more. Although I believe in love and marriage, what I have learnt is the most important relationship you have is the one you have with yourself. You will always be with you and you will always have you. Now this a very long time to be with someone. Do you ever think about how you treat yourself or how you approach yourself? Is it with kindness or contempt? It’s something to really think about and gives plenty of food for thought. If we could see ourselves from a different perspective would we change our approach to ourselves. Kindness certainly has to start from within which radiates outwards onto others and the world around us. You can only give what you already have and it’s remembering this. No matter what the question is in your life, love is always the answer. Even more so, self-love is more important than ever in a world that sometimes makes no sense at times. This goes hand in hand with building a good relationship with ourselves – our true selves.
