Day 26 - Your definition of love

Bad place to get stuck
I don't know anymore.

Back in high school I read somewhere that love meant having one cupcake and giving the person you loved the half with more icing. As an Extreme Sweet Tooth Romantic, this struck a chord with me and I held on to that definition for over a decade.

These days I believe self-love is the most important type of all. Children don't benefit from a mother who is hungry for feeding them, or emotionally starved from always tending to their needs.

Until you take the time to learn how to care for yourself, you won't be a suitable partner or parent.

After all, you can't draw from an empty well.
