If Ive read books on relationships, Ive likely come
across the term "self-love". What exactly is self-love? Does it mean being
selfish, even when it hurts other people?
Unless Im a gardner, I probably know as much about philodendrons as I
do about self-love. Yet, if I was in pain, and I kept reading in books that philodendrons
were a proven source of natural and healthy pain relief, wouldnt I want to start
learning everything I could about philodendrons?
If self-love can help me improve my happiness and my part in the relationship
with my SO, its worth finding out how - no matter how little I may know about it
right now. It may be that my perceptions of it are based on bits and pieces that
dont give me a true picture yet, just like having a few puzzle pieces doesnt
give me an accurate picture of what a completed puzzle will look like.
Just for Today
Today, Ill begin exploring what this mystery called
"self-love" really is. Ill seek out people who seem to feel genuinely good
about themselves, and ask for their help and insight. Ill also look for any books
that can shed some light on it, and see if I can get a more complete picture of what it
really is. If it can help improve my relationship and happiness, its certainly worth
looking at more closely.
Some people get up in the morning and exclaim "Good
God, another day!". Others get up and say "GOOD, God, another day!" -
