Knowing that you are worthy of respect, honesty, loyalty and love is critical to the self love process. Sometimes we forget to give these things to ourselves and rely on others to provide this to us. That can be a painful mistake because in order to truly feel loved, you must love yourself first. You must know that you are worthy of great things in your life and not tolerate anything that could be negative to your well being. You have to make an effort to demand these things for your own life before you allow someone else in. The hardest thing to do is to try to find yourself after losing yourself in a relationship. Sometimes it's just easier to work on you before you get serious with someone. Whatever route you take for your life, remember you are worthy of respect, loyalty, honesty and love. Be committed to loving yourself so that love can find you.
