You can find serenity in learning to love yourself first. Everyone has heard the expression, “love your neighbor as you love yourself.” The second part of that statement in many ways is easier for many people.

In most homes there is a guest bedroom, guest towels and other special niceties for others. No one ever thinks of this as unusual. It seems to be common sense that one should be nice to guests, visitors and others. Why then, do so many people have such a hard time showing themselves love?
