“We often believe that when someone says they love us…they know HOW to love us. Everybody needs a minute to learn;) Sometimes…a lifetime.
Love…is patient”- Jada Pinkett Smith
Isn’t this the truth?!
Sometimes some people do not know how to love themselves, therefore expecting someone else to love them, is a lost cause.
Everything in life is a learning process. It’s necessary to KNOW HOW TO LOVE ourselves 1st, before expecting someone to love us. Know what you love and also know the things you dislike. The things you desire and the others that make you happy.
We were given many qualities, and mind reading was not one of them. We have to tell others (spouse, significant other, friends) HOW TO LOVE us, how we want to be loved, and what we interpret as LOVE.
The BEST thing you can do for yourself is to discover and learn yourself, for yourself. I think the learning NEVER really stops, but the whole idea is to begin. You cannot expect someone to commit to you if you haven’t got the slightest idea of who you are and how you want to be loved.
