We come across the concept of love very often – and mostly in the context of other people. We will tell our parents, spouses, children how much we love them. But how often do we consider love for ourselves.
What does love really mean? Do we know? Can we separate it from attachment? Need? Desire?
When you love your kids, you relate to this saying, you do what is best for them, in your judgment. Similarly, with parents, friends and your spouse. But when it comes to yourself – what do you do?
With respect to food at least, I have discovered I don’t often make the right decisions for me. I make the decisions that I desire, or want, which make not necessarily be right for me. For example, eating a chocolate or perhaps having that extra cup of tea.
Do you always take a step back and think about the decisions you make? With every little thing that you do? Whether it is eating more greens or walking the extra mile? Do you really love yourself?
I am still figuring out the answer to that – I always thought I loved myself. But when I look at some of the food choices I make, I am beginning to question it.
