You can love someone or something so much but in the end if you do not love yourself, who you really are, than you will always be left wanting, searching for more. The idea that love requires an external outlet is ingrained in a lot of us. It is unfortunate that many people have bought into that idea so they go out in the “search for love” be it through things or people. While that does fill a void, it is only temporary. What is needed is a conscious effort to love oneself. When a person loves who they really are, they will usually find themselves more confident and happy. It does not mean that everybody else needs to know what those are, as the priority is with one own self. So have coffee or tea with yourself and be honest. Figure out who are you really and work on embracing yourself for all that you are.
