Love Yourself..

Many people want to be loved but dont know how to love due to numerous reasons. The perfect example for this is my father, he is a caring father but does not know how to express or show affection and can be emotionless sometimes and bitter. I dont blame him though and dont love him any less for it but it can be frustrating when he is rude with his bipolar mood swings. My grandparents admit that they were the hardest on him when raising him and it explains why he can be cold sometimes. I on the other hand love and care for my family more than anything in this world and I show them love and affection every chance I get. I haved learned to love myself first then opening my heart to the world and treating everyone fair and with kindness.

I agree you should always love yourself and, show love to others, but even then everyone won't love you, because not everyone is good.

I learned this later in life. It was a long road to learn to love myself. But I took the time and now that I do, the love I feel for others is truer and unconditional. It gave me a sense of freedom.

I know that it is hard for some people to show affection. Those of us who can show affection are the lucky ones.

It's nice of you Some people don't know how to express their love and cause misunderstanding or even resentment, it's sad.

Sometimes people in our lives serve as the best bad example of what we do not want to be or do.

My father was the same way. I understood it was just the way he was, I didn't love him and less for it. For people just have a hard time showing love.
