So just like any change you want to make in your life, falling in love with yourself takes effort. It means leaving your comfort zone of self-talk putdowns and criticism. It means paying attention and pushing yourself every day to be better and do better.
When you get to the place where being with you for eternity is looking good, you’ll be ready to meet a man who feels the same way. You’ll be ready to attract love. You’ll recognize each other when you meet and you’ll understand why you had to fall in love with yourself first. You’ll both be free of needing each other to feel good, and there’ll be all that much more love for you to share.
