Musiq Soulchild, Nat King Cole, Kesyshia Cole, Kirk Franklin. These are just a few artists who have written songs about such a convoluted word and feeling. Musiq said “Love. So many people use your name in vain. Love. Those who faith in you sometimes go astray. Love. Through all the ups and downs the joy and hurt. Love. For better or worse I still will choose you first”
Despite what some think and how others use it, love is not just a word but an action and a feeling. Love can help you, support you, push you to do your best, but though it’s not supposed to, it can also hurt you and hinder you. So when people use love incorrectly, how do you get back to the basics? Well, I believe you have to first know how to love yourself. But what does that mean? How does one love themselves? What does it mean to you to love yourself?
