A boy asked his mom, “How will I be able to find the right woman for me?”
The mom answered, “Don’t worry about finding the right woman. Concentrate on becoming the right man.”
I love this…and think is applies to both men and women.
We are so consumed with finding a partner to share life with, that we don’t consider spend time improving our self, our character, our personality, our health, our outlook on life…
And, I think (part of it) is because we’re scared of getting to know ourselves, scared of loving ourselves (scared of the work that may be involved).
But when you have a confident awareness of who you are and accept both your strengths and weaknesses, you learn to love yourself…which means, you can love your partner 100% wholeheartedly without being distracted by fear or lack of self confidence.
