A Genuine love for self and a genuine relationship with your Lord goes hand in hand. If you love yourself you will have this incredible hunger for something more than the norm for your soul. You will long for a spiritual relationship from one who is flawless, and can give you love that is not within the reaches and bounds of this world.
We as humans were not made perfect, we are all flawed. Although we should try hard to correct our conduct and affairs; we will most likely fall into flaws and faults and sometimes even sins. so we should not look to another human-being to give us something that they do not themselves possess. We should look to our Lord and pray that He helps us with that which is good for us and that which will be of benefit.
