[Day 111] Love Yourself First

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” – Buddha

Most of the wisest men I have met always told me to love yourself first, pay yourself first, and treat yourself first before anybody else. I strongly believe that you are ready to love someone when you have invested much love on yourself.

I can list people who love and treat themselves first before anybody else. I asked them why and how happy they are right now. They told me that they have never failed to invest in themselves first. They told me you wouldn’t have the same degree of happiness if you don’t love and invest in yourself first.

“Go love yourself, because at the end of the day, no one else will make you feel loved and cared but you alone. You cannot necessarily find the love you want from other things, or from other people. You have to love yourself first,” a good friend told me,

And I believe her.
