    I have been told that before I can love another I need to learn to love myself. How could I do this?

    Every day, tell yourself that you're perfect and you can achieve anything. You can write down everything you like about yourself. For example, i would write down that i'm funny af and i'm very kind, a good listener and stuff.

    In my opinion it means that you accept yourself entirely for who you are, warts and all.
    Believe your are good enough for anybody and equal to everybody.
    Be happy with your own company first. You don't need a relationship to validate yourself have a fulfilling life on your own and your special someone can share it with you

    Do this without the computer, looking at your reflection.

    It's a progressive thing. You can't just love yourself one day and the other day you can't. You have to start liking the small parts of yourself that you do everyday - the reason that you go about your day to day life the way you do. If you interact a lot with other people, don't fall into the trap of why they are talking to you, but why you like talking to them - what are the qualities that you possess that makes you go out in the real world and sell yourself.

    Ask yourself this everyday - what is the one thing that you want to bring out in the world, or your legacy and once you start thinking like that, your thinking will translate into actions.

    You need to enjoy where your living and just be happy where you are then you really move forward I think. If you always have your eyes on the horizon you'll probably miss all the things staring you in the face like the Marks and Spencer's meal for one or Iceland, it's about a pound mate.
