Do you dare ask yourself what it is that you need love, independent of what others tell you? Can you stand your ground dear, independent of the consequences? Life will give you mirrors that reflect how you see yourself. The situations you find yourself in, the people you meet; they are a mere reflection of how you feel about what it is that you deserve.
