The sooner you know that love begins with you, the happier you'll be.
You can't be dependent on someone else, or outside circumstances, to bring you love. They are out of your control, living under their own set of rules and beliefs.
When you wait for others to love you, you put yourself in the passive mode, and blame them when they don't love you as you'd hoped for.
A healthy loving relationship (with anyone, not just a romantic partner) is a balanced, 2-way street.
Make loving yourself your top priority. Only when you love yourself can you expect others to love you as you treat yourself - with care and respect. You won't settle, or make excuses for bad behavior. You will wait for those who appreciate all of you, exactly as you are.
When you know what real love is, you simply don't accept anything less.
Once you've created this foundation of love for yourself, you protect it at all times. When someone says something negative that dents your vibe, you move on. When someone doesn't keep their promises, you move on.
You don't wait around and give them permission to repeat anything that makes you feel less than loved or loving.
With information being shared around online it isn't easy to avoid seeing hateful messages, but it is possible to stop them affecting you. When your main focus is looking for things you love, you've already built up a bubble that makes you feel good, so hate can't enter as easily as if you're feeling down about yourself.
You are then more emotionally detached from the hate, so you can stop yourself from reacting and getting embroiled in an upsetting situation. Living without drama changes your life. If it's something you want to defend, you're able to respond more rationally and then move on.
When you know living with love feels so good, you won't want to waste time turning over the hate again and again in your mind. You know leaving it behind feels better - so you make that your choice.
Keep on moving on!
There is always something happier, funnier, cuter, more beautiful around the corner that will lift your spirits back up. Actively searching them out is how you fill yourself up with love, so there's no room for hate. The more love you feel, the more you want to feel - and the more you will attract.
Let others live as they choose - make love your choice, each and every minute of every day!

"Loving yourself…does not mean being self-absorbed or narcissistic, or disregarding others. Rather it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart, a guest worthy of respect, a lovable companion." ~ Margo Anand
