    Well at least this is true for me lol. My friend used to say this all the time, but i didn't believe him until I got into a relationship. I liked the guy a lot but as soon as I got into a relationship it was like WHADDA F? Almost all the feels went away and i kept on over thinking every situation (my specialty). I would focus on the negative aspects of myself, and would have the same mindset towards him. Oddly, I never have had that mindset with my siblings, parents, or friends. Anyways once I started to fix my cognitive distortions and love myself, I fell in love with him too.


    Thoughts? Not on my experience but the saying itself.

    I really do agree with this, everyone is worthy of love but you need to accept and respect that before getting into a healthy relationship

    but also for the person youre with

    I understand and mostly agree with the sentiment but for me personally, loving someone else taught me that I could - and therefore probs should! - love myself

    Pretty much why I said on another thread I wouldn't date someone with mental health issues again.
