Which would you prefer, "To LOVE, or To BE LOVED?" Why? Love has a broad meaning. Let's SEE what's yours.

If you never know how it is to be loved, you wouldn't know how to love either. Love is total caring and sharing. Care towards his/her feelings, dreams, worries, happiness, nightmares, hopes,weakness etc, While sharing his/her joy, time, sadness, strength, faith, trust, future, etc.

..hi.. for me, loving yourself is already loving others..why..? because I believe in the golden rule which says, do unto others what you want others to do unto you.. the relationship is that, if I love myself, then I shall also love others because if I hate anybody then somebody will also hate me that I don't like to happen.. In my own opinion, loving yourself is the start of being loved by others.. So I would prefer TO LOVE myself first, before loving others since the way I love others will show how much I love and value myself.. It's not that I'm self-centered.. I say this because I believe that if I don't know how to love myself, then I wouldn't know how to love others also.. love is just like respect.. we earn respect as much as we earn love.. if we show respect to our self, we respect others, then people will also respect us in return.. advance happy new year.. may the good Lord continue to bless us all..
