And Why It’s Important to Be Comfortable Loving Yourself First
Why is it important to be comfortable loving yourself first?
When we're not comfortable loving ourselves, we tend to rely on others to make us feel good about ourselves. But when we're able to be happy on our own, we're less likely to seek validation from others. In fact, it's a prerequisite for healthy relationships because when you love yourself you are less likely to accept mistreatment or settle for less than you deserve in a relationship. When you're comfortable loving yourself first, you're able to set boundaries and make decisions that are in your best interest. Additionally, you'll be more confident and secure, which will attract people who will be drawn to your self-assurance.

About Trayana Vasileva
Hey there, my name is Trayana, but everyone calls me Yana. I'm a 22-year-old girl who was born and raised in Bulgaria, but in 2019 I took the plunge and moved to England. Growing up in Bulgaria gave me a deep appreciation for the culture and traditions of my home country, but I've always been eager for new experiences and to see the world. So, I decided to leave my comfort zone and try something new.
Living in England has been a big change for me, but I've loved every minute of it. I've had to adjust to a new way of life, but I'm excited about the opportunities that living here has given me.
