To Love and to Love Oneself…

Eckhart Tolle says, “To love is to recognize yourself in another.”

However, to me, that sounds incomplete. I think we have to also like what we see in others. If we don’t, then maybe we don’t love ourselves. One point about this I do agree with, and that is this:

We recognize our own traits in someone else. Now, whether we like those traits or not tells us how we fell about ourselves. If we accept who we are, we can easier accept other people. In turn, they will easier accept us. That’s true love.
