Having confidence and self-esteem go hand-in-hand with loving yourself. Self-love is necessary in order for a person to feel they deserve to be loved, and to put themselves first, before others. When a woman loves a man more than she loves herself, she will sacrifice her wants and needs for his to please her man.
Confidence and self-love are attractive qualities in a mate. I think it may be hard for someone to truly love a person who doesn’t love themself. It’s ironic though, that not loving yourself doesn’t prevent a person from being able to love someone else. The problem is when you love someone more than you love yourself, they’ll probably love you less and may take your love for granted.
Being happy is virtually impossible if you don’t love yourself. Self-acceptance and gratitude are key components to loving oneself. Focus on your positive qualities, your accomplishments and don’t dwell on the negative or things you can’t change. None of us are perfect, we all have our flaws. Sometimes it’s a matter of forgiving yourself for past mistakes or shortcomings, and ending the negative cycle of self-pity in order to learn to love oneself and find true happiness within.
Before getting involved in a new relationship, a woman should strive to gain confidence and self-esteem. If she doesn’t, she will bring her insecurities into her new relationship. A man will place more value on a woman who loves herself and puts herself first. He will see her as someone who deserves his love and respect.
Being comfortable in your own skin, will enable you to be confident and secure in who you are.
