One of the things that make relationships fail is when you expect & anticipate to be validated by your partner.
You are outer directed.
Basing how you feel on how someone else treats you puts at the mercy of the other person's moods.
Gambling with your emotions is not a good idea.
Emotional roller coaster anyone?
You need to love YOU first.
Sincerely and without restraint.
When you build yourself up with self praise, a genuine love for yourself, you will never be tugged by the puppet strings of any outside force.
You will then be inner directed.
No one has the power to tell you how you must feel. It's you that decides that.
This is not an overnight thing though.
Like any other new habit it needs to be conditioned.
Of self love.
So I love you.
But you don't need my love now do you?
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
