If it wasn’t your mother telling you, it was somebody wise and older and they were correct. How are you going to attract the person of your dreams into your life if you don’t have a beautiful invitation for them? YOU are the invitation! You are a beautiful invitation.
If you are pining away worried about how to date, attract, retain, cultivate, have the love affair you say you want to have, you need to know yourself and really have the love affair be with you first. I know—it sounds a little nutty but it is true. Have you ever spent time around someone who doesn’t really like themselves? It was funny in the 1970s when Woody Allen would be on the big screen lamenting his persona but it was a kind of dark comedy and his love life was not a happy story.
You want a happy story, right?
Everybody loves the person who seems to have fun whether they are alone or in a group. Of course, they love their own company, they get a kick out of themselves and are a joy to be in the presence of. When was the last time you enjoyed your own companionaship? The problem is that if you resist this idea, you become one of those people who needs to be around someone else all the time or you are unhappy, whiny, fussy, and miserable. And even then, you want the other person to MAKE you happy. Life doesn’t work that way. You need to find your own inner joy and then share it.
All human beings crave a deep to deep connection. You need to know yourself well enough to be in a position to BE EMOTIONALLY AVAILABLE and in a healthy manner with another. If you are busy hiding form yourself, embarassed about who you are, every relationship you have will be exhausting and feel artificial. Relax about the person that you have become, trsut that you are a good and lovable type and you will find the mate best suited for you as you extend the effort to find them and be genuine.
