Seeking a Soulmate

January 22, 2010

Finding the right romantic partner can calm your restless spirit and splash vibrant color over your black-and-white world.

Your ideal partner is patiently waiting until you learn to see and appreciate the beauty and perfection within yourself. Self-acceptance is a prerequisite to a healthy relationship. After all, if you do not love yourself, how can you expect anyone else to?

We must be our own before we can be another’s.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
