The most important relationship in the world is not which you’ll have with another, but the one you have with yourself. Once you pass childhood, you enter into a journey of developing your self-sufficiency in several ways; the task that has been most difficult but rewarding is emotional and psychological self-sufficiency.
I needed love so badly for most of my life and would beg for scraps and sensations of it where ever I could. I spent years of my life addicted, I spent time homeless and bounced from unfulfilling to abusive relationships at an insane pace.
I gained most of the knowledge I needed to combat addiction in rehab, but it wasn’t until I was in an Oxford House (a halfway house for addicts) that I gained the psychological drive to form a loving relationship with myself.
What I learned in life is no one can truly love until they love themselves first.
