“The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.” – C.G. Jung
One of the most important things a human can do is love themselves.
If you love yourself then the love that you are able to give to others also increases. It doesn’t go the opposite way though. You can’t pour from an empty cup.
It’s also important to love yourself instead of love the idea of other people loving you. This creates a negative feedback loop.
Loving yourself is the best thing you can do for yourself and those around you. It isn’t selfish and it isn’t something to be ashamed of. Create the positivity and love that you want in your life. You’re in control of it and you don’t need to be a rag doll.
So, I think you should love yourself.
