    Have you forgotten to put yourself first? Cause, words may just be words, sometimes... but when lash out at people, it hurts! Fuck you, and your self image... Love yourself damnit! How the fuck am I, or anyone else, gonna do it for you?!

    I love myself a lot... but that does NOT mean I think I am "wonderful", "beautiful", "exceptional", "capable of anything". In fact, it takes A LOT of self love to be able to see oneself with all the flaws included and STILL love oneself after that.

    Self love is NOT narcissism. Narcissists DO NOT love themselves. Let's stop this misconception once and for all!

    OP, your intention is good, but the title is misleading. Self love is NOT about having an inflated view of yourself. When you love yourself, you are capable of seeing yourself as you truly are. You don't seek compensations such as "oh, I'm short, so I must be smart". You don't fabricate qualities you don't have. You just accept and LOVE who you are for being who you are, regardless of how inferior / superior you are to anyone in any criteria imaginable.

    Upon reading your reply and rethinking my goal with this thread I've rethought my own thinking process and rewritten the OP Title.

    Like how you only talked about your good points in you profile btw. Seeing what you posted really makes it easier for me to see that your words carry meaning for you too. I totally respect that in a person.

    BTW, your body is perfect... shy guy. ;)

    The answer to loving myself is money. Money for the gym. Money for white teeth. Money for independence. Money for pwning noobs and feeding my gaming addiction. Solved.

    [edit] oh and money can get me friends if i move to LA.

    I don't get why I'm getting hate on the home front?

    What do people get out pushing you to, and seeing you at your worsts?

    Cause I won't cave for unimportant bullsh**!

    Often I pass along the street and see a handsome, striking fellow....

    ... at second glance, I realize the plate glass of the windows casts a reflection.

    I have become accustomed to your posts being unusually lucid. I completely agree.

    Though I am most certainly not accepting of my flaws.

    Bachian is awesome! I love flaws, as long they're not stopping a quality connection between two adults.
