Loving yourself is key to loving others. How can you love someone else if you don't love yourself? I am a firm believer that all women need to live on their own for a significant amount of time to get to know and love themselves. All women need to learn to take care of themselves vs relying on a man to validate them as a human being. Loving yourself is a keystone to not only a healthy relationship but a happy life!
