“In other words, accept yourself. Love your body the way it is and feel grateful towards it. Most importantly, in order to find real happiness, you must learn to love yourself for the totality of who you are and not just what you look like”
Find the star you are and let the light shine bright. There is no better feeling than the feeling of loving yourself.
I found this article a while back and for some reason just re-read it and it might be on of the most understanding things that I have ever read from my single and never married point of view.
Doesn’t it just make sense to understand that when you are in a committed relationship that it no longer is about you? Your life, and your decisions and even what you spend your money on is no longer about only you. I won’t nit-pick, but I believe all successful relationships depend on this philosophy, to an extent. Sometimes at the right times, when harming the other isn’t as risk, being selfish is necessary for your sanity. But I love his view, and I think it’s beautiful that he got that advice and wrote about it and it turned into the wildfire that it did.
