Be kind to yourself before taking care of your partner’s needs…

Love and kindness starts with you being kind and loving to you. Sometimes people take on projects and invest all their time, energy and resources in their partners because they don’t feel worthy or important enough to give love or attention to themselves.  Sometimes they choose to do this because they want to distract themselves from facing what needs their attention in their own life.  Regardless of what’s behind this behavior, the truth is that they often end up feeling unappreciated, dissatisfied and bitter.

The way you treat yourself tells others how to treat you. Take care of yourself.  Be respectful of your needs and wants; others will follow that route and as a result everybody ends up feeling happy.
