Your individual presence is precious. When you love yourself, you surround yourself with those who love you just as much as they love themselves. This allows you the freedom and balance to love them just as much as you love yourself. In the presence of mutual love, the circle is complete and balanced. With balance comes strength. With strength comes love. And the circle continues around. If you are not receiving love from those with whom you surround yourself, you owe it to yourself to change that surrounding.
