On romantic love

I was talking to a friend, comparing notes on love, and we came to this conclusion:

Love yourself. It is not selfish to love yourself above others.

If you cannot love yourself, you cannot love others.

I know people who when they love, they give it all. But they should keep some love for themselves.

Love is precious, and loving yourself is just as important as loving the world. Be the change, Gandhi says, in the world that you want to change. And if you wish to love, then you must first love yourself.
