Dorothy Dupont — One day…

One day, a child of mine came home in tears. Another child had been mean to him and hurt his feelings. I want to say now, as I said then, “When a person doesn’t like you, or is mean to you, it has more to do with them than it does with you. Dry your tears. You cannot be loved by everyone, because everyone cannot love themselves. You can know that I will always love you. And the greatest gift you can give to others is to love yourself. If you do that, you can love others without worrying whether they love you back. You will have enough love for both of you.”
