Love.Such a familiar word! We all need love, without it, it is very difficult to survive! As babies, we need the love of our parents, as teens we need the love of our peers and opposite sex, in marriage we seek the love from our soul-mate.It is a continuous cycle, for each one of us! Most of us feel deprived of love, we feel empty, desperately seek to fill up this gaping wound in our hearts- some people turn to addiction, some take even more harsher measures, try suicide.People who say they don’t believe in love have been badly hurt by it in their lives.It is understandable to feel this way.I just want to say that no relationship is perfect- ever.The most important thing to do is to love and accept yourself as you are! People say self- love is selfish, it is not! Only when you truly love yourself, you can completely love others. Inner self- confidence acts like a magnet!People will be attracted to confident people-it has been my experience! Please build up your own self- confidence before jumping into a relationship, for those already in a relationship, it is never too late. Accept your partner/ friend as they are, do not keep trying to change others- it will never work.People do not change if someone wants them to change, they change, only if they truly want to change! Incorporate these changes in your life! Your life will change dramatically!
