The True Love Of Your Life Is Loving Yourself
Love, Self

Take a good look and you'll see ...

If you’re reading this article, chances are you’re still unsure on how to find THE ONE.

It could be you haven't found a relationship where love truly is the answer and that's why you haven't found the love you've been seeking.

The good news is that there really is not just one love of your life. So, when a relationship has ended — which sadly, can and does sometimes happen — it doesn't mean you're doomed to never find that level of happiness again.

Love isn’t some limited resource that is only doled out in tiny portions to a chosen few!

I hope this encourages you. Happiness lives within you — if you are willing to open yourself to love again with depth and passion. Next thing you'll know, that same depth of passion is the kind of love you will find.

The hard part is accepting that in order to find the true love of your life, you must first learn to love yourself.

You may have heard that one before. Perhaps it sounds trite, but that doesn't make it any less true. To love yourself deeply is the surest, purest and fastest way to true love with another. To get a love that goes deep like this depends on your willingness to give love at a deep level. 

To love yourself you must love, forgive and accept yourself exactly as you are. Five, or fifty pounds overweight, crows feet, or traces of them, split ends, flat feet, the works. You must unconditionally love, forgive and accept yourself exactly as you are, regardless of your history, the past wounds that still ache, and the ever present voice in your head that says you are not worthy

If you are looking to validate or recreate yourself in the eyes and arms of another person who coming into the relationship seeking the same experience from you, you've got a heartbreak just waiting to happen. Eventually, either you or the other person won’t measure up to what’s expected, and boom, it’ll be over.

How many of us have gone out and done the same thing all over again?

Perhaps, now it’s time to take a break from checking out online dating sites or heading out to meet “the friend of a friend.”

Maybe it’s too soon to change your Facebook status or break out the suitcase for a weekend getaway hoping it will all work itself out.  

Maybe, it’s time to be alone for a little while, on your own, learning how to understand who you are, what you really want and explore how you feel.

Give yourself permission to take the time you need to discover exactly what it will take to truly love, forgive and accept yourself — just as you are in this precious moment.

Fall in love with you. Learn from the inside out what true love FEELS like.

You are a living, breathing work of art.

Learn to appreciate your inner landscape then, the rest will follow.
