It took me a long time to really grasp this quote when I was a teenager and even as an adult. Of course its inevitable that every one wants to be liked or loved once in their life or another. As much as I wanted people to like me, I had to realize that I have to like myself first. Plus there are going to be people who will even hate me for no reason. What I've come to realize with maturity is that no matter what you do or say, I can't afford to live my life based on whether someone does/doesn't like me. There's more to life then just wondering who likes me or not. Like I always say The Lord will send me someone special in due time. But in the mean time I will live my life to the fullest, enjoy my own company, take myself out on a date (yes, myself) just until that special someone comes along.
