You can hold on to and love yourself while loving someone else with all that you are. You can disagree but have respect at the same time for example. There is power in vulnerability, you are opening yourself up fully to your partner while holding strong to who you are. It is not considered weak to show the vulnerable side of you, it doesn’t mean you are giving your strength away. You can make yourself stand firm while loving someone if you do it right.
- In order to really love, we need to become more authentic versions of ourselves.
- It’s important to realize you can be powerful and also vulnerable at the same time.
- We can’t be a capable lover until we love ourselves first and invest time and energy into our relationship with ourselves.
“To become a more loving person, it is necessary to find out what is really true about love from our own experience, not from what has been handed to us, or from the beliefs that we may have picked up along the way.”
