"True Love Starts Within"

Updated on August 13, 2012

" True Love Starts From Within"

There are many single people all over the world, looking for true love to fill their heart and ease their loneliness and despair. What people don't realize or understand, is love must first begin inside of you; we have to genuinely love and care for ourselves first, before we can transfer that love to someone else. We 're fooling ourselves into believing, if we find the right person that Will love us with all their heart, it doesn't matter if you love of yourself, it want help us feel loved or make us be happy. Many of us have been misused and abused; but the truth is it doesn't matter how much someone loves you, you have to love your self first and go through a healing process before you can return the love to someone else.

We try to build strength and love on someone else loving us and making us feel worthy of love; when we should look within ourselves and realize no matter how much trauma or abuse we have suffered at someone esle's hands, that we are worthy of true love. Some of us seek physical love thinking that it will fix the problem, when in reality, it really make the problem worse. Being physical with someone you think loves you to satisfy the carnal lust of the body,will only cause you to feel hurt guilty and unworthy of the person, you're involved with. So, if you want to start off right ...then ask God; to clean you up and come into your life and make you whole with his love. When you do this you, will become a new person and you will feel the love of God within you, and you can accept love and give it in return. Always remember that true love begins within ourselves and spreads abroad. If we show the world how much we love ourselves and how much love we have to offer someone, then the world will accept our love and give us love in return.

      I think that many of us, myself included didn't know that you have to start with yourself first. God can show us the way as you said. If we are non believers then we can start by doing good things and being good to ourselves.

      Thank you for this lovely hub.

      That is the key to happiness I think to be honest - if you love yourself, you can love others - and they can love you completely - and you can feel it!
