When You Love Someone …

When you love someone, you give away your heart and your soul. You break down the walls, unleash your fears and dive in to experience something real.

When you love someone, you share who you are inside, what you dream to be and work together to accomplish those dreams.

When you love someone, you respect yourself, allow yourself to be treated fairly and embrace the good and bad about each other.

When someone loves you back with the same strength, it can be the most amazing feeling in the world. It gives you that tingly feeling and a sense of self worth. It makes you feel powerful, ready to conquer any obstacles in the way, knowing support is by your side.

When you love yourself, you allow yourself to be loved and admired. Your confidence flies high and you find yourself accepting others more readily with open arms.

Without self love, you lose the ability to love others. You find yourself blaming those around you and build walls to keep the hurt out. Those walls prevent any type of love to occur, those walls hurt others and those walls hurt your chances of ever finding true happiness.

When you love someone, you don’t give up. Love can thrive if you’re willing to love yourself.
