    Another Food for thought.

    We say it all the time.
    "Love yourself"
    "You cant get love until you can love"
    "If you dont love yourself no one will love you"

    Well do you love yourself, and what does it mean to you.

    Also does loving yourself mean you are content with everything about you.

    If you could change one thing about you, would you? If you did then does that mean you dont truly love yourself if you would change something.

    Is it even possible to love yourself 100 percent. I mean everyone has insecurities right.

    Do you love you 100% percent?

    no, but overall I'm good with myself most of the time. I'm not sure what people who love themselves 100% look/ act like. If we don't worry about what we're lacking in any shape or form would we ever make any improvements? There's a long list of bad things I could say about myself but there's a list of things that I am pleased to have.

    "loving yourself" is a trendy gaga-inspired branch of positive psychology, which typically leads to supressed negativity, self-deception and insincere thoughts.

    "loving your neighbour" will probably stand the test of time better...

    I can't see why following that logic loving your neighbour wouldn't lead to to supressed negativity, self-deception and insincere thoughts.

    I don't necessarily love myself 100% that terminology sounds too cliche for me for some reason but I accept myself for the person I am 100%

    I prefer the idea of understanding and accepting myself 100% rather than 'loving' myself. I have met people who claim to love themselves 100% and they tend to be extremely arrogant and selfish. (sorry about the broad generalization)

    One thing I think remains true for any person though is that their is always room to grow. You may learn something about yourself down the road that you didn't know before simply because life took you for a spin around the block.

    It's just a love/hate relationship.

    It's understandable I mean everyone has a tad bit of insecurity right, or is there a rare case where a full on narcissus is immune.

    and is love of yourself mostly contigent on beauty or other things. Slef esteem has alot to do with it of course.

    Yes, I do. And if you don't, I would work on that relationship before you look for other ones!

    I'm happy with myself, but do feel there's a lot of room for improvement. Which is really why I'm on a site like this, to motivate myself to make better health choices and meet a wider variety of characters.

    I'd worry about an individual who completely loves themselves.

    No I don't.

    How I look on the outside bothers me and I won't be able to love myself until I look a certain way and am able to attract the kind of men I want. Looks are everything to me. Also until I feel like I've attained that level of success in my professional life I won't feel worthy of being with someone and especially if I still look like this.

    I would think that loving yourself 100% is a serious flaw: a person with a tremendous ego. I don't love myself 100%, but I know who I am. I recognize my own flaws and I work on it as I learn from others during interactions. I think it's always good to reflect back on flaws because it will give you something to look at, and it's what makes you you.

    Just because you don't attract the kind of guy you like doesn't mean that you should love yourself any less.... ^_^

    That's a nice sentiment but I won't feel complete until I look a certain way.

    Easy : be ready to forgive.

    Apply both to others and to yourself ;-)

    75%

    I always see need for improvement. Complacency is the soul killer.

    I have had to rein in my perfectionism. I'm happy with my humanity now, and I'm not ashamed to be flawed. I'll never get past my humanity.

    I wish I could be one of those guys who never let things bother them, tho. That intrigues me.

    no i dont. thats where i need work the most. if i cant love myself then no one else will i guess. explains alot. i was thinking about this alot recently. it puts crazy thoughts in my head. sometimes ppl will say something that they think wouldnt bother a soul but to me i over analyze it and take it to heart. theres no off switch for that icon_sad.gif

    There are people who don't love themselves who have metal on their ring finger. Don't live by expressions people spew out when they can't think of something original to say.

    No, like anyone I don't love myself 100%. Everyone has imperfections and things they would like to improve on. Doesn't mean loving yourself 95% is a sad existance.

    The thought of loving one's self 100 percent sound to arrogant to me. We are all human---we make mistakes and we accept ourself for those mistakes. Does that mean we like those mistakes, absolutely not. Our imperfections are just another part of life that we all have to deal with, accepting one's self is the number one step to getting close to becoming more comfortable with who we are. In reality, no one can truly love oneself 100 percent. It's too superficial.
