It’s easy to believe that nobody will love you unless you love yourself.

Even when you’ve found love within yourself in hopes of someone loving you, that love from the outside source is not enough. It can be gone at any moment.

I’ve come to the realization that no one will love you…the way that you love you.


You are the only one who knows what you deserve when it comes to love. You know how you want to be loved.

It’s only human nature to feel wanted by others. We have to understand that love is not guaranteed. Nobody is entitled to loving you or even liking you.

Friendship isn’t guaranteed.

Life itself isn’t guaranteed.

The love we deserve is from within.

It’s time to learn to love ourselves because nobody else is going to come close to matching that type of love.
