I'll echo that!
And I do think self-love is essential to loving others well, crucial.
Still, I'm no longer comfortable even calling my relationship with myself "primary" and my relationship with others ... somehow less so.
Rather, I simply realize that I can only love others well if I am loving myself well. If I fail to love myself well, things get pretty f-d up pretty fast.
I love my Sweeties as much as I love myself -- which is plenty, and getting better every day.
As love should!
