“You always hurt the one you love.” A memorable line from a classic love song. The fact of the matter is, though, that it is probably true in more ways than one. Sometimes hurting another person is inevitable; however, often times we will actually hurt ourselves even more by not loving ourselves in the right way.
What does that mean? You have to take care of yourself first.
A relationship with another person is not going to make you happy if you aren’t already happy. If you get stressed easily or frustrated quickly over the simplest things, that means you have not developed the tools to cope well with uneven situations. So… if you can’t accomplish that when you are by yourself, how are you going to do itin conjunction with another person?
Take care of yourself first. Be happy with you. Maybe that means taking a class on stress management. It could mean seeing a professional to help you deal with those little frustrations that hold you back from enjoying your life.
Figure out you. Then consider joining up with a partner.
The truth is, people who exude self-confidence and seem happy are more attractive to others. To help you get to that place of self-love, here are some suggestions.
