There are many cliches out there that nonchalantly get thrown around. We tend to accept these one-liners without any serious thought and they eventually become collected and a part of our belief systems. Some examples include:
1. “Too much of a good thing is a bad thing.”
2. “This is the first day of the rest of your life.”
3. “The grass is always greener on the other side.”
4. “When one door shuts, another one opens.”
And the winner of the day…
5.“You have to love yourself first before you can love anyone else.”
Don’t get me wrong, most cliches sound good. That’s probably why they’ve become so overused throughout time. These cliches can hold truth as well, but I think that depends on the person who decides if that’s the case or not. My beef, however, is with the last cliche. I mean do we really have to fully love ourselves first before we can love another?
