An Ego Strategy to Avoid Surrender

 The old adage that you must learn to love yourself before you can love anyone else, has some much truth in it. Not just being alone but truly being ok with being alone, and even enjoying it. Giving yourself validation instead of requiring it from others will make time spent with others more genuinely about enjoying and loving the other person than taking from them. There is a line in a Gregory Alan Isakov song that says it so beautifully, "I would never say I love you dear, just to hear you say it back."
