## Firstly, what is love?
Love has so many meanings to different people. Some say love is blind while some say love is wicked. Others say love is divine.

Now here is a definition of love. It is a complex set of emotions, behaviors associated with a strong sense of feelings of affection, warmth and respect for another person. Love is an irresistible force of nature we cannot command, demand or take away. It is like saying it shouldn't rain or the sun should not rise. Love means a lot of different things to a lot of different people.

The first love to happen to mankind was the love of God,  the creator of heaven and earth, as it is written in the holy Bible and I quote _"for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life - John 3:16"_

He loved us so much that He sent His son to die for our sins and this is true love. Love in its form is a process and I've learnt that without a person loving and appreciating his/herself it would be impossible for that person to love another. I know it may sound strange but it is the truth.

> 'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life' - John 3:16

As you keep on loving yourself, you will realize all what you deserve and create your own sense and definition of love. By loving yourself, you will get to see love in some many angles that you have never realized that it exist, because no one knows you better than you. You shouldn't always wait for someone to love you first, you need to feel the love within you and be that love, spend more time focusing on self love. Give yourself a break, no one is perfect and don't try to please everybody while you neglect yourself.

Be grateful of who you are, never wish you were someone else and be contented with what you have, because when you start being grateful you will find inner peace within you. Be kind, considerate and compassionate of yourself. When you have reached this stage of self love you can start loving others. You will realize that you don't need someone to show you love before you can feel complete or happy, the major thing is to be happy with yourself.
Relationships only make you shine brighter and brings more love into you life.
