I read a Toltec book about Love. You may have heard of it: The Mastery of Love. It was a unique take on the idea of love. Basically, the book says that you have to master self-love before you can ever give love to a relationship. You have to love yourself so much that you don’t even need a relationship at all. Only in this way can you truly have love and not an addiction to love.
So I started thinking: how do we master self-love?
I have a few ideas.
Think about a few reasons why you are grateful FOR YOURSELF everyday. For example, I am grateful for my health and my intellect.
Try mantras. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are incredible and that you love yourself. Sound stupid, I know, but it works.
Stop focusing on the negative and start changing your thoughts to positive ones. Boost your own ego! Go ahead I give you permission.
Well what do you guys think? Do you need to master self-love before you can find real love?
