We feel like we’re alone. We feel like there isn’t anyone who actually cares about our well being. That no one loves us and no one understands us. But if dig a little deeper, the only person who can love you the way you want to be loved is yourself. You give yourself to the power to choose to love and feel loved. You choose to care for your well being whether it would be through exercise, prayer, or personal development. No matter what, you should not feel like you have to raise your standards so you can impress the people you don’t really get along with. Get along with yourself first. Love yourself first. Everything will follow suit afterwards.
