#013: You Can’t Love Another If You Don’t Love Yourself

In this episode Mel delves into the nature of healthy self-love. This love for self is not self-interested or narcissistic, but a bountiful relationship with your own self.

Not to be confused with being unaccountable, this type of relationship is buoyant and brimming with resilience.

When you come into a healthy relationship with self you’re ready to be authentically loving of others. When you learn to quiet your critical inner voice, you become able to be kind, patient and loving for others.

Mel interviews Chris Wise, who advances the concept of LQ — love quotient — as an indicator of a well-lived life. Mel proposes that the authentic and lasting component of happiness, one that can’t be stripped away from you, is the ability to love yourself and be loving to others. This is the eternal source of meaning and purpose in our lives.
