Love is a word that is loosely used. It is used often when relationships with the opposite sex is considered. It is often used for describing the love of an object. Love, however, must start within in order for it to be appropriately expressed without. Unless you truly love yourself, no one else can truly love you because you will not be in a position to receive love. Love must come from within first and foremost and then it can permeate around you. Your loved ones may love you but you cannot amply feel or recognize it unless you first love yourself. Your family, on the other hand, is instrumental in helping you learn to love yourself. The way they treat you growing up is instrumental in how you feel about yourself as an adult and when you step out into the world seeking a new relationship of your own, you are often mimicking the results of love you experienced as a child growing up.
What is the point here? If you are a parent, do everything in your power to convey love to your children and allow them to feel, accept, and believe they are loved by you unconditionally and wholly. As an adult, make sure you love yourself no matter what the experience was growing up. Make every effort to love yourself like no one else so you are not dependent on others doling it out to you. Make sure you do loving things for yourself as well as others. It is up to you to love yourself first. Then be concerned whether someone else loves you. You be the guidepost and make sure you are honored and loved for who you are and not what you have or can do for another.
Be committed to yourself and to loving yourself like no other. Put yourself first, not necessarily selfishly but so many are selfless it is hurtful to watch. Treat yourself with love and kindness at all times and others will follow suit. When they see you put yourself first, they see you have reverence for yourself and they will follow suit. Be the example of how others are to treat you, and all will be well because no one can treat you any less than you treat yourself.
