Knowing Your Worth and Value in a Relationship

Give yourself love first - be kind to yourself. Focus on becoming the person your dream man or woman would want to be with vs. making lists of what your dream man or woman looks like. It's not all about looks at the end of the day because those will fade. From a faith-based understanding, knowing and trying to understand or grasp God's unconditional love for you, helps us love others. When we are secure in God's love and grace and mercy on us, we can give mercy and grace to others when they let us down or wrong us. Being confident in who you are. We’re all imperfect people - do not count one another’s flaws.
