Relationships can be tricky. At our age, we’re experiencing a crucial time of self-growth, love, and confidence. When I first started my YouTube channel, I didn’t expect to grow so much, so quickly. With that growth, I experienced both good and bad feedback, both nice and hurtful comments. Despite the negativity, I discovered who I was over the years and have learned a few reasons why you should love yourself before loving someone else!
Self-confidence is a wonderful thing to have, but it can be so hard to attain. Whenever I feel down or start to doubt myself, I always turn to the Bible for advice. On the subject of loving myself, I also refer to Psalm 139:14. It says, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful.” This is a verse that you can always lean on for a little boost! 🙂
As far as the reasons why this factor is so important before starting a relationship, there are many! I’ve learned from experience that if you are still trying to find who you are as a person, it will be 10x harder when you’re looking to someone else for reassurance. When you love who you are and are 100% confident with your own values, morals, and beliefs, that’s when you should share your life with another person! I promise you, you will be so much happier.
Learn to love yourself and you’ll be so happy you did!
