No matter how much love you get from others it will never be enough if you aren’t loving yourself.
Seeking love, validation, approval outside of yourself is a recipe for misery.
You are a love addict when you NEED the love, approval of those in your life in order to feel ok. When your sense of self worth is dependent on other’s loving you, you end up needing other people’s love like a drug.
When you think that you are lacking something inside or that you aren’t whole and complete, you end up seeking it outside thinking that person will somehow complete you.
This creates dependency since you have made the other person responsible for your sense of freedom and inner security. You will never feel free living this way.
The love you get outside yourself temporarily fulfills that unmet need deep within you. But ultimately it isn’t lasting. The more you need the love from outside, the less free you are to authentically be yourself.
A million likes on Facebook will never be enough if you don’t like yourself.
The whole world thinking you are amazing will never be enough if you don’t appreciate yourself.
So what do you love about yourself?
