So many people believe that love means I get all of my needs met 100% percent of the time with the exact person that I want who looks the way I want and says all the things that I want at the right time and they’re just perfect and they’re going to love me even though I’m not perfect. Well that is just unrealistic.
Learning to love yourself is a life-long process. Instead of trying to figure out your worth in someone else’s eyes women and men need to know firstly how much God loves them and then secondly they need to grow in love towards themselves.
Everyone wants to be loved. Every little boy and girl wants to know that they matter to Daddy. And we carry this longing in our hearts as adults. It’s in all of our nature, God created us this way.
