Loving your neighbor as yourself begins with you. You must love and value you if you are to love others. If you don’t have respect for who you are, you cannot give it to others. You have to acknowledge your own self worth. You must take care of you so that you can love and help your neighbor.
Does this make you selfish? No! It makes you responsible!
If you don’t take care of you, both physically and emotionally, you cannot take care of others, whether it be children, older parents, etc. Don’t neglect others by neglecting yourself. Love you and then you can love your neighbor. Each day make sure that you do something positive for you so that you will be able to take care of others, for that is what LIFE is all about.
