Loving yourself is one of the most important aspects in life. You cannot give out love to one another if you don't love yourself first. Self love goes hand and hand with self awareness, self acceptance, kindness, and respect for yourself. It's the idea that you are worthy of self respect and that you treat yourself with gentleness, kindness, and care.
when we are given love it can have the power to stop us from loosing at ourselves in a negative way. It eliminates us from self doubt, depression, loneliness, self-hatred, and any harmful or hurtful feelings that we may feel. It also lessens that feeling that no one cares or that we are alone. For when we love ourselves unconditionally we are complete, and do not need other's acceptance or approval.
Most often having a lack of self love is often the root of many people's problems. It can give a person a dangerous dependence on others for confirmation and acceptance. Many of the times this just makes them set aside their own needs in order to get other people's approval. Not putting your own needs first, saying negative comments about yourself, trying to be something that you are not, focusing too much on the past, doubting yourself and looking for other's approval are things that need to be eliminated in order to start loving yourself.
Having love for yourself can help speed the process of uniting with your twin flame and attract your soul mate as well. Twin flames are the mirror reflection of one another, they see themselves through each other.
Some of the times when one or both twin flames don't have self love for themselves they then become overwhelmed and scared with this connection and begin to run away from their twin. This is most often referred to as the runner and chaser dynamic.
