Anytime I bring up my longing to be with someone I sometimes get the response "you have to love yourself before you can love anyone else". People really hold onto this motto as it were true but is it really true?
Do you believe that you have to love yourself before you can love someone else? I'm sure it helps to feel satisfied with yourself but that doesn't mean you can't love others even if you don't love yourself.
And couldn't be argued that you can actually find love for yourself by loving others? Couldn't be argued that there really is no other and loving yourself and loving others is perhaps the same thing?
What are your thoughts on the validity or truth to this statement?
