A hard truth in life is that we can’t be the one to someone else until we can be the one to ourselves. 

Most relationships don’t end later on down the line like it appears they do. Generally, when a relationship ends it was going sideways for a long time before. 

Really, they end well before they even start. 

It will inevitably happen if we don’t learn to practice “self-love” and seek to understand our own inner workings on how to best communicate, trust, and respect the other person we are with.  

It can be easy to blame a significant other when things start to go bad but the hardest part, the most needed part, is figuring out what we are doing wrong and how we could fix it. The finger should only be pointing in one direction until we can figure ourselves out.

If we show up for ourselves first then we’ll be able to show up for anyone else later.
