12 Steps to Great Relationships: Step Two, Self Love


The first step to great relationships is to know yourself.  As difficult as that is, the second step may be even more difficult.  You must develop a genuine love or at least acceptance of yourself.  This can be very hard for many people.  We talked in previous blogs about how emotions create energy and energy affects outcomes.  When you dislike yourself, you create an energy that tells others to stay away.

Let me give you a very practical example.  Remember back in your dating days when you were desperate for the company of a particular individual?  And they didn’t want anything to do with you?  That desperation and self flagellation created an energy that made them not want to pursue anything with you.

Then, when you started dating someone else, what happened?  That person you so desired, who wouldn’t give you the time of day, is suddenly interested in you.  What happened?  Did they change?  Or did you change?  When you started dating someone, your confidence level likely went up, your self love went up, and you created an energy that made that person want to be with you.

If you can’t get to love, you can always accept yourself with all of your shortcomings.   Once you have this self love or self acceptance down, you will find that people will be drawn to you.
