There are two types of people: Givers and takers. In every relationship, there is a gardener and a flower. Which one are you? I can spot someone who only takes.
Generally these people find an empathic person to take from. I am a giver, and I will always be one. This makes me more vulnerable to be taken advantage of. I know. But I can’t change who I am. The only thing I can do is be aware of who I am, so that others can’t use that against me.
What is love? I know that God is love, and that there are givers and takers, but if you don’t love yourself, not only do you not know God, but you will not find true love.
You need to love yourself fully, and completely, if you are to know God; and also, if you are to find a person worthy of you. These relationships, the spiritual, and the relationship with the self, may seem separate, but they are not.
Love is everywhere, just like God is everywhere, but if you don’t love yourself, you are nowhere.
