Love is one of the most desirable things in life, the most natural and readily available. Everyone wants love, but many don’t know how to give it.

To love others, you must first love yourself. Not loving yourself makes it difficult for others to love you.

Our ability to love is often shaped by our experience of love and dictates how we live.

Many people have learned how to pretend to love – how to speak kindly, avoid hurting feelings, and appear to take an interest.

Authentic love not only requires our concentration and effort, it demands our time and personal involvement.
