About this Quote

In this quote, Mary J. Blige is stressing the value of putting God first in our lives. She believes that without a strong love for God, it is difficult to truly like anybody else. This is due to the fact that God is the source of all love and by loving Him, we have the ability to comprehend and experience true love. In addition, Blige suggests that in order to like others, we must initially love ourselves. This self-love is likewise rooted in our love for God, as we are all produced in His image. For that reason, by prioritizing our relationship with God, we have the ability to like ourselves and others more deeply and authentically.
