Self-love makes you a fast learner. You don’t stay in a toxic situation for a long time. You end things that are not working for you or not serving you well. You walk away from those who don’t know how to value or respect you. You don’t keep hurting yourself repeatedly by making the same mistakes. Self-love allows you to put a barrier between you and those who hurt you. Self-love doesn’t make you heartless but it makes you indifferent towards those who hurt you. It makes you put your mental and emotional well-being first.
