The love you accept from others will never exceed or substitute for the love you require of yourself. You will never gain unconditional love and acceptance from others if you won’t give it to yourself.
The above statements are one of the foundational principles of Grown Zone Relationship Education, one of the concepts we’ve identified as among the “15 Things Grown People Believe That Mere Adults Don’t.” Regardless of your relationship status, your most important relationship has always been and will always be your relationship with yourself. Your level of self-love sets the standard for the quality of treatment you will accept from others.
The love of your life is not somewhere out there with The One. You are The One. No other person holds the key to your happiness; you are the key. Others can only enhance or diminish what you establish, according to the standards you set, communicate and enforce.
In this excerpt from our Grown Zone Radio podcast, we explain why loving in the Grown Zone requires an unflagging commitment to self love.
It is impossible to have healthy, sustainable relationships while operating with self-love deficits. Our mission in the Grown Zone is to provide the information, training and coaching you need to help you step-up your self-love game, so you can be truly prepared to recognize, choose and engage in healthy relationships.
