You can't love anyone more than your willingness to love yourself. Through this advice I learned about the importance of caring for my mind, body, and spirit. I liken love to the oxygen mask on a plane. You have to apply it to yourself before applying it to the person next to you. This advice improved my chances of winning my wife's hand in marriage. She was searching for true love. She wanted someone to spend the rest of her life with. Conveying to her that I loved myself signaled that I could be a pillar of strength and compassion.

A person who does not love his or her self does not really understand what it means to love another or how to love another.

Loving yourself implies accepting who you are and coming to terms with certain aspects that you cannot change- you have no control over. It means to have self respect and regard for yourself. It does not mean that you should be arrogant and think that you are better than others. You can do this by investing in and working on your personal growth and development. You work on being the best you can be.

Love for oneself will enable you see yourself from God's eyes because God is love and being the expression of his image humans were created as love beings and that divinely afford man the opportunity to love withholding nothing but a twist set in because of the interference of the devil with the mind of man. That interference of the devil brings changes to the thoughts of man and that's why some persons do not even love themselves.

It is important for everyone to love him or herself because you can't give what you don't have and at that if you don't love yourself you will only be loving another person deceitfully and that clearly is heading for hurt.

Even a part of the golden rule give to man to love his neighbor touched on the love of man to himself. I feel so much that loving yourself serves as a guide on how to relate with other people. Also it will make you understand how not to hurt other people because you will be able to test the your mind how you will feel if a wrong was done to you. Just as God made us up with emotions, love fpr oneself will teach you to be compassionate to other people because you know so well that you also are human and will at some point need compassion from another.

@Dynameak: this is a nice post, thank you. Loving oneself, atimes might come off as being selfish if you over do it also I don't feel it's about accepting who you are. What if you have some characters that isn't presentable are you to turn blind eye to them because you feel it's is a you thing and you love you. I use to have a friend who was nice and beautiful but she had one flaw I noticed I couldn't take and I told her about it she ended the conversation with it's my thing, that is just me if anybody doesn't like it, it's their problem .I love myself. Do u think this a right way of loving oneself . I believe in doing the best you can do for yourself which includes trying to improve oneself instead of hiding behind its my stuff I can't change which is a lie because change is constant. Also because you love yourself so much don't hurt others in the process. In my 200level days I had a friend that if u ask her to give you salt she can tell you she planned that the salt would reach her for the next month she can't give. She loves herself so much to not want to suffer after helping someone. Is this kind of love right?

I love you means nothing to me if I don't see such love exercised by you to yourself. How would you love someone when clearly you don't love yourself? To love someone you have to love yourself. Show yourself enough love that people around you would notice. You can only love people to the extent that you accept and love yourself.
Love is something we all need regardless of our varied perspective or difficult times of life. Loving yourself does not imply self centeredness, pride or selfishness, it's about finding out who you are then coming to terms with that person. Loving yourself gives you a sense of self worth. Being comfortable in your own skin is a joy that can only be felt by you, no one else can give that to you. Everyone always has an opinion of who you should be and, not knowing who you are gives them the opportunity to mold you into what they want you to be. The way you see yourself is the way people will see you. When we do not value ourselves, we tend to attract people who support that devalued image.
It is a healthy mind that can celebrate itself. What do you think of you? While we validate and value the worth of others, we must also take the time to value and validate our own sense of person hood and self development. Develop the ability to embrace yourself, not all public opinion counts. A positive self image is not arrogant. It is necessary in order to procure a healthy relationship with others. Feel good with being yourself else you won't feel good being with others.
Loving yourself entails loving your body. Don't body shame yourself. Look in the mirror and love what you see and "oh, what a beauty!", "Babe, you are soooo fine" "Dude this your handsomeness will wound somebody" "See fresh face". Say it and mean it. If you don't give yourself worth, don't expect it from someone else. The way you talk about yourself is the way others will talk about you.
Before you get a second opinion, be sure you have the first opinion: What do you think?. Get a grip of your own feelings and develop your own reasoning. You are you and you are amazing just the way you are.

Sincerely, what you do not have, you can't give it out. Likewise, you can share what you have not experienced. A lot of time you see people acting in their selfish interest and saying it to you that they love themselves. They so much prefer everything to be theirs, they place their personal interest first, they so much prefer their existence than any other person existence. Now, am not saying on this things are wrong, neither am I saying that if all this exist in your life, that your are evil or bad. But what am trying to clarify here is that, when this is too much of you, then it places you in the wrong psychological thinking.
What does it really mean to love oneself? If you don't know what love is you can't really love yourself. The scriptures made us to understand that God is love and the in all ramifications is true. God has so much express this to us. But bringing this a little down, to love is to have affectionate, benevolent concern or care for other people or beings, and for their well-being. This is what love means. What then does it mean to love oneself? As it appears to me, to love oneself simply means to love not just based on your perspective but put yourself in others shoes and express love. For instance, a person that was once poor and then rich later in life will know what it means to be poor and with that, he will know how best to express kindness to the poor.
Just like the scenario shared, a lady coming to ask you for salt and you are telling the person you have no salt just because you planned using the salt for two months. This is so funny, but the question is, what is the assurance that you will still be alive to see the end of that two months you planned. Am not cursing you neither am I praying for bad to happen to you, but just want you to realise that anything can happen to you in the next few minutes. Why not put yourself in that person's position and see yourself going to ask someone for salt and then you received that kind of response you gave the person. How will you feel, what are the thoughts that will be running through your mind.
Therefore, it is not bad to love oneself but it will be so bad and cost you a lot if you are then selfish about it. So, always be good and balance when you express love to yourself.

The benefits of loving yourself are numerous and will have reflect in way you relate with other people because whosoever doesn't love himself or herself wouldn't be able to love other people. God who created the whole world is a love personified and from love He made man in His image. God loves mankind with Jeremiahan everlasting love. Jeremiah 31:3: The Lord appeared from of old to me [Israel], saying, Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you and continued My faithfulness to you. To Love oneself starts with self- acceptance. Even in our worse state God still loves us and that alone is a reason good enough for us to accept the good and not so good part of our lives. Accepting yourself will open you up to love yourself wholly and give you a positive look at the not so good part for a change that will make you a better person.

To love yourself is the one way ticket you need to put the good qualities in you to a productive end. God has a purpose for every man and to be able to fulfil purpose on earth, you have to love yourself so as to follow up with God's plan for you.

I want to motivate you today to be the better version of yourself. Love yourself always. because you yourself as much as anybody in the entire world , you deserve your love and affection the most.

Self love is not selfish. You can't love another person without knowing how to love yourself.

Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we'll ever do.

You proud of yourself and do not be ashamed of how people sees you.

Be yourself. An original you is so much better than a fake you.

Take care of yourself first. you can't pour from an empty cup

Be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it take yourself out of it.

If you're searching for the right person that can change your life take a look in the mirror.

Never underestimate yourself.

Always love yourself. Be yourself at all times.
Thank you.

**No doubt**

Love for oneself is essential to be able to love another person. Love for oneself is the ability to see oneself as worthy of the good things that God has freely given to man. To love yourself will bring you peace and joy because from love you will be contented with how God created you and at that will be able to love another person wholeheartedly.

Love for oneself creates confidence in oneself, if you aren't confident in yourself it will be very difficult to start a relationship with the opposite gender. It is expedient to accept yourself from love before you look out for a love relationship because from self-acceptance, self-worth will develop and that can influence your self-esteem greatly.

If love for yourself isn't deep enough to take you through stormy times in life then you should learn to love yourself more because there will surely be down times and it can get so though that you might consider hating and hitting hard on yourself because the circumstances surrounding the situation are overwhelming. There will definitely be important people in your life but you wouldn't be able to love them as much as you desire if do not love yourself deeply. So you should embrace yourself more because from self-love will love for others grow.
