Maya Angelou. It's true; if someone isn't happy with themselves, doesn't know how to love and care for themselves first, no one will make them happy and they won't really know how to love anyone else in return. Want to know true love? Love yourself first.
Love who you are inside and out, and keep pushing forward. No one else has the power to make you feel small unless you give them that power. And when someone rejects you, don’t inevitably feel it’s because you’re unworthy or unlovable, because all they’ve done is give you clear feedback about their own shortsightedness. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2013/12/18/7-smart-ways-to-stop-fearing-rejection/
