It is echoed continually in our culture. You see it television and hear it on the radio. You read about it on the internet and in print media. They all shout from the roof tops that in order for you to attain a complete and fulfilling life, you must learn to love yourself. In order for you to love someone else, you must learn to love yourself first.

What exactly does this phrase mean and how do you accomplish it? You hear it at recovery meetings and other self-help groups. This expression seems to have lost its message. Does loving yourself mean becoming self-centered and conceited? Does it mean that you pursue your goals no matter who gets hurt along your journey? Does loving yourself have anything to do with the acquisition of material items? How do you know if you are in the state of loving yourself or not? Do you feel euphoric when you love yourself? Do you have the combined strength of superman and superwoman?

Hello dear Tema,

For me loving yourself doesn't mean caring only about your self ,become selfish,thinking about your own benefits,caring about your health,collecting each and every thing what you want and fulfilling your own wishes and demands.

                   It means try to know yourself,think what makes you happy,pamper your self and appreciate your self for good deeds, care about your feelings.

hello dear  sushma ,

i totally agree, with you loving your self = knowing what you have

Hello Hafida, 

          nice discussion started by you .thanks to all those people who have joined the discussion.we are getting very appreciatiable views about loving yourself

.Thanks

I would not say love, but rather, respect. There are many people who really underestimate themselves and this is very damaging. So, we need actually to increase our self-esteem and be more confident.
