You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere, at least in the way you imagine.
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection. Before you can love anyone you must realize that you are the one you are searching for, you are the one that is deserving of your own love and own affection.
When we discover this, the love that is its companion, the love we then seek will come to us. This I learned a very long time ago while in my childhood. The events during this time in my life, as hard as they were, taught me so much about who we are, what we are and who and what we can become. I watched intently and took all of it in. I blamed no one for the path I was on by choice or not. It was where I needed to be.
You see, what we are today comes from our experiences first, and then our thoughts based on the interpretations we glean from these experiences from all of our yesterdays and the thoughts that we each have today build our life tomorrow as well as the lives of the ones that we love but we must love ourselves first.
So, you see, no matter our experiences, it is what we take from the experiences in all of its purity, no matter how bad it may seem make us who we are and touch all of those to whom we are connected.
With this, I say to you each, God bless each of you and all of those to whom you are connected to or will ever be. May tomorrow and each day be your best day!
