If you are running after everyone’s else expectations, stated or presumed, you find yourself always busy, often exhausted and mainly satisfying everybody else but yourself. You rarely or never find time for yourself. That time is always left behind for when there will be time.
You are the love you are looking for.
I considered this idea of a healthy, long-lasting and satisfyng love relationship for many years. In this quest, I spent such a long time to study love, relationships, bonding and attachment. I went back to study the origin of love, the moments in our life when we learn to love from our first models. And I observed how we repeat what we don’t repair, how we end up in relationships that are a mold of our previous ones, unless we do something to break this mechanism.
Love is often described as a given. Something you’re supposed to have, as if you could take a person, make him or her yours and get your needs partially satisfied by your partner for a long time.

It’s a tricky, winding road when you start to think about self love and body image. The two are intertwined in a way that only our deepest selves can begin to comprehend. And unfortunately, you can’t have one without the other. How can you show yourself love if you’re body shaming? How can you have positive body image if you don’t truly love yourself? You can’t. But I can show you a simple step that is interwoven into our daily lives that you can do every day that will move you in the direction to having both and, to me, it’s the ultimate expression of self love.
