3 Reasons Loving Yourself Is WAY More Important Than Loving Anyone Else

At the end of the day, you're all that you've got.

3 Reasons Loving Yourself Is WAY More Important Than Loving Anyone Else

Self-love is a tricky thing. Sometimes the world pulls you in a million different directions, and you become so busy helping everyone else that you forget to take some time for yourself. I can't point any fingers, I'm guilty of it more than anyone. But you will never truly be able to find inner peace, clarity, or success without showing yourself some love, and here's why I think that you should.

1. You're the only thing that is for certain in your life 

Boys, friends, and sometimes even family will come and go. This doesn't mean that you can't love them and want to keep them around, but if you knew that ONE person was going to stick with you through it all, wouldn't you want to love them the most? That person is you. At the end of the day, you're all that you've got, so you might as well show yourself some love.

2. You've gotten this far 

Take a minute for me and look back at all that you've done. All of the tests you thought you'd never pass, heartbreaks you thought you'd never get over, and sleepless nights that you thought you'd never get through. You have persevered through all of that just to make it here, and there's no reason to give up now. Be proud of yourself and celebrate your little accomplishments.

3. Loving yourself allows you to love others 

It doesn't matter how many people tell you that you're wonderful, shower you with gifts, or bend over backward to make you happy. If you aren't secure and happy in the person that you are, you won't know how to accept the love that they're giving you. As Chbosky said in Perks of Being a Wallflower, "We accept the love we think we deserve." Love yourself enough to do things that make you happy, and the right person will love you just the way you are.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
