You Gotta Have Love To Love

You have to have love in you to love someone.
You have to have love in yourself to love someone.
You just can’t love somebody without loving yourself.

You may think that it is impossible to love yourself, but I can promise you with my life that you can. You just have to try, you have to have the will to try and not give up.
If you think that you cannot love, you won’t love because you are telling yourself you can’t love.

To do things in life you must tell yourself you CAN do it, NOT you can’t do it. If you tell yourself you can do things you WILL be able to do them. Trust me, I know what I’m saying, I have faith in what I’m saying so just listen to me!

In order to achieve, you have to work, if you don’t work, if you don’t try, then you will not achieve! But if you are willing to try, then for as long as you don’t give up, you won’t fail because the only failure is when you give up and giving up is NEVER easier, it only makes everything harder!
So don’t give up, don’t tell yourself you can’t do this, you can’t do that, and tell yourself you CAN do this, you CAN do that and you’ll soon enough find that you are doing it.

Loving yourself, along with having faith in yourself and belief in yourself, is the most important thing in this life. In order to live a happy life you must be able to do those 3 things which is actually all part of one thing, having belief in yourself.
We all have the ability to, we just need to find it and the first step to finding the ability to do so, we must tell ourselves we CAN do this, we CAN do that and soon enough you will be able to do all of these things. I can promise you! You can! So stop saying “can’t” and start saying “can” and don’t give up!
