Love Yourself

Loving ourselves is more important…

we are bound to realize that in this universe no one is really there to bear our pain physically and mentally. Yes, lucky are those who got real soul mate or friends or parents but all they can do is to support or empathize with you. Yeah, getting some positive mental support is also bliss in this cruel world and time; still there always remains some kind of pain which can’t be shared with anyone except your own soul. That is why loving ourselves is more important than running after relationships without knowing the value of it.

Most of the times we are instigated by our hormones to be entangled in romantic relationships not by mind; yes, hormones play a magnificent role in falling without gravity; existence of our dynamic mind makes these things more complex, it is really difficult job to detect whether our feelings for somebody is purely based on love or driven by chemical receptors or hormones. If basement of a relationship is made of the second reason then there is high chance that warmth of the relation will decay very fast and die down with time. And obviously such breaking up of relationships will be devastating for almost every person who had put so much effort in that. We can heal this wound easily if we can learn to love ourselves first.

Whatever difficult situation we may face, we should not leave loving ourselves.

Like the poet Derek Walcott says, in his wonderful poem “Love after Love”,

“You will love again the stranger who was yourself.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you”


Love Yourself was originally published in ILLUMINATION on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

What’s your Poison in Life?

I love my “Cocktail of Life” on the rocks. It’s a perfect blend of everything nice but if you mess with it, you’d have to make it twice.
