No one wants to feel alone, yet no one wants to be heartbroken. This statement presents the paradox of life. As humans, we all desire company and companionship. But to find the best companion, you have to work on being the best companion there is.
It is simply not enough to say that when you find "that someone" is when you will work on being a good companion. It has to start with YOU. Are you the best companion to yourself? Can you honestly look at yourself in the mirror and still love what you see, both inside and out?
For you to find that genuine love, you first have to learn to love yourself genuinely, fully and freely. Only then can you give that same love to another person.
