It took me a long time to understand and FEEL Grace Jones' "In a room full of people, want yourself first." Now, there's no other way to be. It expresses the highest form of self-love, with a healthy dose of sexiness too.
I think in order to be happy in life you truly need to embrace who you really are. Don't let other people's opinion's effect or change you, enable yourself to flourish in a way that seems natural to you.
Vive y deja Vivir! I'm from Colombia, I married a Brit and our son is American. Our cultures collide, combine and thrive. I feel more and more like a citizen of the world than one of a particular nation.
