self-love

I'm not changing quick enough because I go on and off a diet in a
yo-yo fashion. That in itself can kill you, not good for the heart.
Aah, self-love, where is it?

Speaking of love, I have read many non-fiction books and one of
my favorite authors is Leo Buscaglia (not because he is Italian).
Here are some tidbits. If you don't mind my going off track:

*Lovers learn not to just hope for the better, they strive to
make it happen.

*We are confined in our understanding of other human beings
by what we know about ourselves.

*Love is far less concerned with what's past than with what's next.

*The notion that there might be a better or more convenient time
to love has cost many people a lifetime of regret.

*Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out
they don't.

*Love is not about opening old wounds, it's about healing them.

*Forgiveness is made easy when were can identify with others
and admit to our own imperfections and an equal capacity for
wrongdoing.

*Most of us remain strangers to ourselves, hiding who we
are, and ask other strangers, hiding who they are, to love us.

*All the things that "go without saying" or that are "understood"
between two people in love can build up a mountain of
miscommunication.

*Giving in is an important kind of giving when people love
each other.

THE "WORD" SAYS, FIRST LOVE GOD WITH YOUR
WHOLE HEART, YOUR WHOLE MIND, YOUR WHOLE
BEING, AND LOVE OTHERS AS YOU LOVE YOURSELF.

I like this one...

"We are confined in our understanding of other human beings by what we know about ourselves."

My husband has all these answers to solve my weight issue. But in my opinion, his solutions will work for him but not me. He gets frustrated when I fail, saying that I "don't listen" to him. It only pisses me off. I believe that we are all different and the only real expert is you.

Thanks for the post-these expressions may become the rules in some situations-the main thing is to use them correctly....
