Those words have resonated with me ever since.
Not only is the advice romance appropriate, I find it applicable to any relationship.
For some folks, like my husband, self confidence is a by-product of having been nurtured by great parents. Individuals whose love for one another was undeniable. And a love which blanketed their offspring, and all future generations…forever after.
On the other hand, the majority of people probably struggle with low self-esteem.
I would suggest it better that these folks surround themselves with supporters, rather than detractors. Positive, not negative, personalities whose energy will help sustain and grow an otherwise wilting confidence.
However, just as my very wise and very beloved brother-in-law advised, everyone is suitable for someone. We just need to find the right one…
…be it a friend…or a lover…
