In order to love, cherish, respect, show compassion and empty you must love yourself. Everything starts with you. If you are unable to love yourself, how are you able to give those things to others. We SHOW what we KNOW. Everyone has a different level of "knowledge-based" information or "shown based" information that begins at a young age. Everyone deserves to be loved and is longing for love, so let's remember this; we are in the same boat in some facet when it comes to love. Let's continue to walk and grow in love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
