So often, and with the best of intention, we seek to love others or more specifically to share love with others. Here's the thing: we cannot give something from ourselves which is not within ourselves. I mean we can try, but You know what Yoda said about trying.
We are best equipped to give to others what we have in abundance, what we habitually plant and harvest internally. That's one of the reasons self love is so important - it allows us to love others, and then in a relationship (Friendship or the intimate variety) amplify that love to bring greater joy, peace and all that other good stuff relationships "are supposed to" - You know, that love that we dream about, that we read about in story books and see in movies.
Self love is the key to loving others. Because we cannot give what we do not have.
