And if someone tells me I have to learn how to love myself before someone else can love me, I'm going to scream.

1. I know dozens of people who don't love themselves that are in relationships (some of them long term).

2. I've been "loving" myself for years. I buy myself hearing aids so I can hear, pay my bills, eat healthy, exercise, see a therapist, seek recovery, buy glasses so I can address my vision issues, and so much more. These are all acts of love.

After all these years of being alive, I know the most important thing in life is love. Nothing else matters.
