[HBBC] Self-Love


So this is my first The Half-Baked Bloggers Consortium (HBBC) post! :)
Meet the HBBC members [here] :D

“You can’t give what you lack”…I’ve heard/read this statement numerous times and it got me contemplating the idea of self-love every single time.  Love is there to be given, not to be received. So when you love yourself, it’s actually more of you loving others around you..loving the universe that you are living in and caring about the simplest objects surrounding you. Does it make sense to you? Well, it does..to me at least! ;p

Another thought on self-love. (I promise I wouldn’t bore you with it). We don’t really expect people to like us, or at least, to respect us, if we don’t like ourselves in the first place. And it’s not enough to accept yourself the way you are. If you like yourself, you’ll be keen to work on the areas of improvements and to keep improving your good qualities.

Let’s love, befriend and talk to ourselves. You think that’s mad? "Well, I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are"* ;)

I love the quote at the end of your post.It's true , all the best people are in fact mad.Frankly, if you don't love yourself, then nobody ever will. You are a reflection of how you treat yourself, and that determines how people treat you. So it's important that that reflection is full of love and respect for oneself :)

I love the beginning and the end!!! :D The beginning reminded me of you retweeting the saying I wrote on twitter "فاقد الشيء لا يعطيه"

I love how simple this is =)
