Immitation is the best form of flattery. I believe this whole heartedly. I also believe that you should always strive to be the best version of yourself. And within these two thoughts, there is a place where they meet.
Be the person you would fall in love with. Create them, separate from yourself if needed. Make this person from scratch. What would their eating habits be? Would they go to shows? Would they always look their best? How would they dress? Would they be athletic? Who would they really be? Every little bit of them, you have the potential to be.
By being this ideal person, you're learning to love yourself. Being the best you and building this beacon that is your own being.
