How can anyone alive not love themselves?
The only alternatives to loving yourself is hating yourself, or just not caring about yourself.

And either is no alternative, it is a sad way to live.

You only consciously love yourself for brief periods when you are not busy working, or other.

But you can base your whole lifestyle around loving yourself if you choose to.

excellent advice OP.

Another piece of advice that I can give is, Love your enemies, you can only destroy through love, but you will only destroy yourself through hate

You perfectly understand why people doesn't love themselves even while that it's insane. But yet you are implying like you don't understand it

Re: How can anyone alive not love themselves?
Narcisism has its own limitation

how about thinking "im a charitable, considerate person" or a "sexy beast with charisma"

Are you limited?

Hell yeah.

Hating someone else is like drinking poison and hoping it affects them.

What is insane is not living your life and loving yourself first.

Esp in this fucked up world.

Re: How can anyone alive not love themselves?
I know lots of people who don't love themselves. There's this one person I work with, they should be the poster child for self- loathing. Always throwing themselves at another's feet just to make them laugh ... self deprecating beyond normal humor ... I mean to a troubling extent. Sycophantic ... lap dog-ish. It is a complicated question really because people have levels of awareness ... so while a person may think they love themselves they go out and participate in clearly self- destructive behavior. What's that all about? And what's the difference between loving your true self versus just being vain?
I've done a lot of study on stuff like this because I had too. I ad a rough background and I was really screwed up as a kid .... I had no courage and I didn't know nothin. It took me years of spiritual work and a transformative experience to realize that everyone has an ego and it us possible to live inside that ego and think that that is who you are. But here's the catch, if you are living inside your ego then it's hard to love yourself ause your living in your mind and not your heart. You think your minds thoughts are who you are, and they are not. The mind is a programmed machine that serves you, and if you want to live in it then fine ... but you will be what they call " spiritually asleep" as long as you're in there. And you won't grow much ... it may be a topic that not many people are comfortable discussing so I will make my comments brief. Living a life outside of your own ego is what it's all about. If you are doing that, then you ARE loving yourself. The hardest thing to do sometimes is to look down inside yourself and it takes times and patience and persistance. There can be blockages in your heart that keep you from feeling things.... this explains a lot of people's behavior. It is like the missing ingredient sometimes and it's why people go on spiritual journeys. I guess that's all I want to say at this point.

I think it is pretty obvious what is vain and what is true self love.

Good stuff, thanks.

Re: How can anyone alive not love themselves?
Well, I hate to be obvious. Let me address the question straight on.
How can anyone alive not love themselves? Seriously? Well, maybe they don't know how. Maybe they are caught up in an abusive relationship and maybe they can't just leave. So while they would like to balance their energies and work through their emotions, instead they are daily dealing with a lot of pain that is distracting them from loving themselves. They are coping, surviving, getting through it and hoping for a better tomorrow but today just sucks. Maybe they don't feel free to just buck up and deal with it. You know it's hard to be happy if your not free. There are a lot of unhappy, miserable people out there. It's a good thing to keep in mind next time your tempted to cut someone off in traffic. All the types of abuse out there, all the shitty jobs and bosses out there, all the cynical people who don't give a rats ass about anything but their own appetites. Where's all this brotherhood of humanity stuff, lol, man your weak if you think that, right?
People complaining about the world but not doing anything to make it any better. People confused about identity and politics and religion. Maybe being a nice person they extended themselves to someone else who mistook their kindness for weakness and totally misinterpreted the gesture and is now treating them with disregard and disdain rather than appreciation. Sometimes it's hard to love yourself when other people shut you down emotionally. It's a frequency thing and making friends is risky, if your doing it for real. No I try to give em a break, life is challenging and for some I believe it is meant to be that way ... so loving yourself truly could be a real problem ... I can totally empathize with that. I suppose people blow their brains out everyday all over the world. They've had it .... they can't figure out how to deal with it anymore.... they are in so much pain that the only thing they can do to love themselves is to put a bullet in their brain. Wow that's aweful... my heart goes out to people in that much pain. I suppose that could be one way someone could not love themselves, pain, it's distracting..
