Your taste in people will change when you learn to love yourself.–credited to many
Likewise, when you learn to love yourself, your taste in the decisions you make will change; what was once palatable no longer will be, and what was dismissed may become the cornerstones of your life.
When you learn to love yourself, boundaries change. What used to take an incredible amount of will power may become effortless. Even the experience of weather changes.
Patience and compassion happens naturally along with a healthy sense of urgency and spontaneity. Self-doubt, blame, shame, and justification takes a back seat, not because there is no memory of it but because self-love takes much of the edge off.
When you learn to love yourself, forgiveness happens towards the abusers that exist both inside and out, and you become the richest person you know.
And the best part is, you don’t even have to change anything about yourself to start loving yourself. Because you are already lovable.
