Is it ok to love myself?

Imagine this scenario, that you are viewing a moment when you are giving love outside of yourself, leading to the event that you sacrifice even your last dollar to give it to a friend that only turns to you and says that what you give is not enough. What if you were to redefine this scenario instead to give love from the core of yourself, deciding that the only time that you are to give is when you know that you will not yourself suffer from the cause of the events taking place? How would this then redefine the situation?

If you show to your friend that you cannot give this money because it is your last dollar, if she truly valued your friendship, on a deeper level she would understand. When you take love back to base you show your friend that you define yourself also on love and consideration, which also allows your friend to do the same for her own reasoning. When a person can define themselves on love from within they then know that what they give is really out of what they truly feel and desire to do.

How can we define love for another if we cannot even define the meaning within ourselves, showing others what real love is and how it can be achieved. If a person were to show their life on value of themselves most often they would not proceed to give to another without the full awareness of the circumstances of what they have the ability to offer, this then does not pressure the other person to feel guilt, shame, resentment or fears.

Love should not be focused on in guilt or shame, or defined by pressures of expectation. Instead it should be defined within each individual separately based on the ability to love ones self. When we show that we can truly love ourselves for who we are and what we can give without feeling guilt, then we show others the definition of how to find satisfaction in life, and the personal awareness that love comes from within from the strength that we have individually to define ourselves.

If you cannot love yourself it will be harder for another to see this love also within you, they will look to all the things that you find as faults within yourself and wonder at whether you also see this within their body, personality, lifestyle or choices. They will question your ability to truly love from the core and understand what it is to love unconditionally without the need to have reasoning within giving and taking, or guilt based psychological events taking place.

Love comes from the core of ourselves and is felt from within, when we are happy, when we are satisfied and most importantly, when we are confident in all that we achieve and desire. The true love can only be felt within individually, and defines what love really means to us in value. It is ok to love ourselves, and in turn show others how it is to feel love for what it really signifies. The truth is that when we give to ourselves we also give to others, taking the pressure off them of expectation, allowing them to define their own space of love and creativity. We then no longer need barriers of expectation but instead what is given is truly what we desire and want in return.

It is ok to love ones self, and in turn show others what love really is and how we wish to give and receive it.
