Generate Your Own Warmth

Love yourself.

I've said it many times. You've heard it many times. But I think that Elizabeth Gilbert says it better than I've ever heard, and definitely better than I ever could:

The only way to truly love other people in your life is to love yourself first. Otherwise, your relationships are nothing more than attempts to validate yourself through the feelings of others.

There's a massive difference between wanting to be with someone and needing to be with them. Stop needing, and you'll suddenly discover what it is you actually want. Not only that, you'll finally be free to pursue it.
