People say they want love but many people self sabotage it because they are afraid of being hurt, consumed with career, comfortable in their loneliness or don’t feel worthy. To have love, we have to make room in our hearts and our lives for it. We must also love ourselves first to be able to accept love from someone else. That is where real love begins. Too often we don’t love ourselves and try to fill the void with other things, but eventually those things reveal themselves for what they really are. You must love yourself unconditionally in order to recognize when unconditional love is coming from someone else. Instead of building walls around you blocking love from coming in, build bridges for you to give love to others. The only way to receive love is to give it.
