“When it comes to Love,
you need not fall but rather surrender,
surrender to the idea that you must love yourself
before you can love another.
You must absolutely trust yourself
before you can absolutely trust another
and most importantly you must accept your flaws
before you can accept the flaws of another.“
~ Philosophy: Falling in Love
Loving someone (not just feeling the physical attraction) is always a difficult process. We need to love ourselves before being able to truly love other people. We need to surrender to Love and do what our mind desperately says it’s dangerous: trade our comfort and safety for the unknown.
To love ourselves is to make peace with our mind. We often hear its voice in the form of our parents’ voices saying we’re not good enough, we don’t work hard enough, or we don’t deserve what we want. We need to learn to forgive and accept ourselves, to be able to forgive and accept others and remember that we come from Love and we go towards Love.
