I never meant to leave if that

was what you were wondering. Along the

line of us, you gradually began to give away your

independence. You became convinced that you were

irrelevant. I had to go, something had to give

for you to begin to love yourself.

    for you to begin to love yourself.”
    I appreciate this different perspective on love. How can we teach others to love themselves?
