The only person whom you can’t live without is yourself, so we have to fall in love with ourselves.
There is a risk in trusting someone, but when you finally find that ‘right’ person, it makes all the past experiences and lessons learned very much worth the risk.
Love yourself and then you can truly love another. You and the other person will experience a love that words can not describe.
We are always dependent because we are such a species, yet we can choose solitude because relationships have become way too complicated and so often not possible because fear seems to be stronger than love, but that dogma “love yourself first” is the pragmatic mantra that looks upon solitude as somehow a necessary punishment for being not enough. Enough aware, consciousness, we are all enough & we all deserve somebody to love.
