Why self-love is important before getting into a relationship?

Self-love is not a new term for anyone. Whenever you open your social media, you always get a post shared by someone telling you to love yourself before you love someone else.

But there are still many men and women who claim they love themselves yet they get this urge to be loved by someone else, which is entirely normal. 

Even a self-love coach will like to settle down with the love of their life, but the only difference between a person who genuinely loves themselves and a person who only claims to love themselves, is that the former is never desperate to get into a relationship. A true self-lover focuses on improving themselves day by day while a "fake self-lover" gets upset seeing other people posting the reels with their partner.

Yes, sometimes it happens. When you are all alone, you want to get cuddled by your partner, talk deeply with them, and share your best and worst moments with them.

Because the honeymoon period is never the same, every relationship eventually hits a snag. Every challenge that both partners face tests their bonds. And sometimes, to save a relationship, a person gives and gives and gives until he has nothing left to give to save his relationship with his partner.

Are you also the same person who forgets their own space, time, and value and focuses on your partner and their needs?

If you answered yes, then this blog post is definitely for you.

Importance of self-love for a happy relationship

Since self-love is a life-long process, you may wonder if you can implement self-love while being in a romantic or non-romantic relationship.

But let me tell you, in a relationship, having a strong sense of self-love is one of the best ways to set yourself up for success. And, while self-love can be developed in a relationship, it's critical to distinguish between growing with your partner and relying on them for your happiness.

To not depend on the other person for your happiness, peace and love and instead share your happiness with them and being there for each other is a key to happy relationship.

Furthermore, if you love yourself, you will know your value and, as a result, you won't settle for anything less in a relationship.

How to cultivate self-love and not depend on someone else?

Self-love is the most beautiful thing. Some say they love themselves but in reality, they don't even know the exact meaning of it.

In my e-book, "It All Starts With You" I have explained everything about the same and how to cultivate it. From the things that stop us from implementing self-love to practical ways through which we can change our life. This book has it all.

How to develop self-love before you enter a relationship?

In order to practice self-love while being in a relationship, here's what you need to know about self-love and relationships:

  1. You cannot expect the other person to know how you are feeling. Communication is the key.
  2. You cannot be totally dependent on them for every little to big things.
  3. You should have your own space and alone time and so should them.
  4. They will treat you the way they see you treat yourself. Set standards for yourself.
  5. You are already whole and perfect. You do not need to change yourself and neither do they have to change. Accept yourself and them.

Final Words

Remember, relationships will only work out if you are ready to stop assuming and start enacting. Instead of continuously focusing on the other person, have a balance between self-love and romance. Your partner is your soulmate, but first, you are your soul. Love your soul for them to become your soulmate!
