You don't need to be a sad clown any more

Being Yourself First

Looking for love starts with being happy with who you are with yourself.

When you can be happy with your life you're ready to start sharing who you are and what you have and can move into the next phase of your life, the relationship phase.

Maybe you have a hard time meeting people and getting dates. That's OK.

it's who you are right now.

But you can make small changes and become the person that others can appreciate and enjoy yourself more in the life you have.

Is this an uphill battle?

Only against yourself.

You know what you like and don't like about yourself. Or maybe you only know what you don't like and can't see any of your good qualities that others might be attracted to. That's OK.

Hell, maybe you have no good qualities at all. But I very much doubt that.

I know that I am often self-righteous and need to be right about most everything. When I am wrong I can admit it and the soul-searching afterwards takes a while to come to a resolution of the steps I need to take to make corrections to my actions and attitude.

This is a good thing, even if it's a regular battle with myself because it gives me a starting point to improving myself and my relationships, even as I find myself in this same position time and time again.

You may see yourself a little bit in this scenario too. What would you do to make positive changes to such behavior?

I try to start the day with a positive attitude starting with a nice hot shower, a clean shave and a fresh set of clothes.

I remind myself that each day is a new opportunity for the new improved me to be shown to others, rather than the mistake-laden person I was yesterday.

Small changes can lead to great results.

I am sure there are a few things, maybe even one thing, you can change about what you did today to have a better tomorrow.

And that will lead to you being satisfied with yourself.

Then making new friends, finding that girlfriend or boyfriend you want to have in your life and moving towards living happily ever after.

It's all possible.

You just need to make yourself a little bit happier today.
