Self love is not selfish

Self loves, dear ones, is not selfish. True self love comes from a heart that is grateful to God for making this beautiful soul you call "you." True self loves comes from an appreciation that you were created unique, beautiful, and precious. True self love is a recognition that there is no one else on earth exactly like you, just as there are never two roses exactly the same. Each one of you is a gift to this earth. Each one of you, in your deepest self wishes to say to the world, "See my love. Acknowledge my good heart. Value my gifts and talents." For just like the flowers that love to be appreciated, so too, each one of you wants the world to see and appreciate your love.

However, dear ones, if you want the world to see you, you must BE you. If you want the world to know you, you must open up and share your true self with others. Share your hopes, dreams, and gifts with those who will appreciate them and support them, and simply remain silent around those who cannot. Share your love with others as you are motivated and guided to do so - not out of any sense of duty, or guilt, but rather when the desire to give comes from within and from joy.

God knows what each one of you has to give, and God knows what each one of you needs. If you listen to your desires to share and act on them, then you will be the angel to others. If you are willing to receive when you are in need, you allow others to be angels to you. Do not be ashamed when it is your turn to receive and do not feel embarrassed when you are motivated to give without reason. God intended His love to flow through each one of you to one another. God intended you to receive when you are in need and to share when you are guided. In this fashion, no one is left out, no need is left unmet, and no one need ever feel unloved again.
