Love is when each person is more concerned for the other than for one’s self. —David Frost—

Loving ourselves is a healthy and necessary attitude if we are to garner the strength and confidence to move into our world of experiences each day. Self-love, when it is honest and nurturing, fosters compassion toward the others who share our experiences. Preoccupation with self is not self-love.
How distorted our perceptions of life are when, with incessant rigidity,

we force our personal selves to the center of every experience. When we focus only on how a situation relates only to our own lives, too often we lose sight of the lesson we might have learned. To look instead with compassion upon the needs and frustrations of those sharing our experiences will usher in solutions and will invite an exchange of gratitude which makes all expressions of love easier. When we look outward with love and acceptance toward our fellow travelers, we inwardly feel greater love, too.
Any expression of real love today—toward anyone—will multiply my possibilities for loving.
