This is a variation of a famous quote from Buffy. Funny thing... When my husband heard it the first time, even though we were only friends back then, he said it reminded him of me. :)
Why I cry when I've opened up to some people. I'm outgoing, but I have my walls up at the same time.
Love yourself first, the best advice I ever received. It was at the time I learned to please myself, worry about my needs at that time, and of course, learn to love myself that my husband came into my life. I was able to give him the love I've always wanted to give, but I had to love myself first :)
How sad so many have no idea and even if they do, they are so scared they let it go... Good. You don't deserve it.
If you think about it, you'll find that very few things in life last forever, making it your job to find and love what serves as your temporary happiness before getting to take on a new happiness. Perhaps the happiness that lasts forever is mastering the ability to do just this- letting come what may, and loving it. We'll never be eternally happy if we're unable to accept this truth.
