Remember that you can love yourself
I think I often reach out to others, even complete strangers, with love in lieu of concentrating some love upon myself. I “wear my heart on my sleeve” and often give it away too quickly or too easily. I can find myself hurt then, because the love I gave was nor earned or deserved...just felt and given quickly. If I can learn to retain that love inside and keep it for myself, give it to myself instead of strangers I call new friends, I might not feel so hurt as often...I probably won’t take this advice or learning to heart frankly! Love? It’s who I am! I like that about myself, and don’t really wish to change that!
