If I could do something for you,
I say that with my feelings true
To love yourself, I will teach you
This is among the lessons few
That seem to contradict completely
The principles of giving selflessly
I know, self-love may selfish sound
But trust me, over the years I’ve found
By loving yourself, you will liberate
Your soul, be the master of your fate
If you look for love outside of you,
Fear of rejection will always haunt you.
What you have is what you give to
The rest of the world around you
So full of love, capable you will be
Of sharing warmth endlessly..
Your reservoir of self-esteem will run high
Nothing in the world will run it dry!

Reminds me of a saying-
