Everyday when we look at the mirror, we will see ourselves.Whether you like it or mot,you are just here in this world.But the value and the perception you have for yourself,do really affect your life to certain extend.Some will think that they are the most important perosn of the world and some think that they are just worst than a garbage.Although it is solely suggestive but still,it reflects on how you rate yourself .Perhaps,you can share with us how do you like yourself and why?

I do love myself very much. If I don't, then there's no reason for me to love and be loved by others. People are not perfect but it is important for us to love our own. I guess loving one's self is the greatest gift we could ever give to ourselves.

Well,it seems that you don't even have to buy a Christmas gift for yourself since you said you have already got the greatest gift already.It is always a blessing not to hate yourself but love yourself in a proper way.Well ,share your happiness with others who may not love themselves and try to help them to love themselves and others surround them more before Christmas.It will make the Christmas of thi syear more lovely and happy for everyone surround you.Have a nice day.

Of course I like myself.Because disliking myself will help me nothing.It only brings me negative emotion and many bad luck.Even I know I have a lot of weakness,I still like myself.And if you don't lile youself ,how can you make other people like you.

Great ,you have a good point here.In order for people to love you ,you have to know how to love yourself first.There are many people in this world never have a good and harmony social relationship with others.People who doesn't love himself will always show their bitterness,hatre, and sadness when communicate with others.People like this will sometimes critize on others without any reason.I hope that your life can always be full of joy and make others to enjoy their communication with you too.Have a nice day.

Let's just say that I have a healthy respect for myself! What do I mean? Well, I used to go through a stage of always condemning myself and worrying about what others thought of me and I realised that this was no way to go through my life! So, I changed my outlook, read a few good books, educated myself on how important it is for you to love yourself and now I feel so much better! I think you have to have a good positive image about yourself! There's no point condemning yourself and saying bad things within your mind. It's important to like yourself and I'm pretty sure that others will see that you maintain this mindset as well and they will hopefully also like you although it doesn't matter whether they do or don't! I feel much happier as a person now having adopted my new outlook on life! Andrew

Hey man,it is good to see you post Karate Kid and the Rocky movies on your profile.I like these few movies too.Yes,it is true that we all need a positive image about ourselves,otherwise it is hard to carry on in life.I think we can have more positive image about ourselves if we will read the Bible everyday and let the Holy Spirit speak to us often.For there are many hidden area that we won't be able to see it or discover it by our own.We do need helpfrom God to build up our life.I hope that you will follow Jesus as your own personal saviour and understand how God Loves you all the times and how he wants you to live in your life,then your life will experience another great joy and happiness immmediately.Merry Christmas,my friend.

Thank you for your response.I don't think we can change ourselves without God's help.He is the power and motive for all positive change.But on the other hand,He is the one who will accept you and love you all the times.I hope that you can be A follower of Jesus and let the Holy Spirit to transform and renew your life everyday.It is very important for anyone who is looking for a change.On the other hand,change and improvement always come step by step and it is difficult to see everything happen overnight.However,a desire to start your change is very important.I hope that you can accept Jesus as your own personal saviour and let Him help you out in every aspect of life from this winter on.Merry Christmas.

Liking ourself is not so important but what others Like/think about you is the more important as per me,if others think about you in an important manner then your confidence automatically goes up and you yourself feel good...

Yes.it it true that sometimes we want appreication from others,but if too much of it will not be too health.Because that means yoou life value is base on how others rate you.If other people tell you that you are good then you will feel more significance in life.But if they say the opposite,you will rate yourself with a low score.You need to have certain self confidence on yourself and get to know yourself in a better way.Without self understanding and self awareness ,it will only be a up and down experience all the tims.Because your friends will one day tell you how good you are,but another day they will probably have oppposite feeling about you.

There are many people in this work who really don'y like themselves at all.Go and ask people who are working as a counsellor or Sosial worker,they will tell you tons of story like this.It shouldn't be that way but it happen in this world.Anyway,I think if everyone love themself and knows how to love otheers ,the world will surely be a better place to live with.Anyway,enjoy your life and have a merry Christmas.

How can anybody dislike himself?Whatever may be your economic status,career,power,etc....the world cannot exist without you.You are the center of life and you can't avoid yourself.Ofcourse,you can have some self pity but that shall not be a valid reason to dislike yourself.One cannot love others if he can't love his self.

Your response will encourage lots of people who are struggle in their life.It is important to know how to love yourself before you can love others.That doesn't mean that you will do everything just to please yourself but to please God according to the Bible.If anyone can love oneself according to God's principle but not to turn everything with egocentric and selfishness,it is a healthy way to love himself.I hope that everybody can understand this and enjoy their life more.Merry Christmas ,my friend.

Why ofcourse I like myself! I mean who wouldn't? I know that men care less about their figure than women but I believe that we should all like ourselfs because that the way God made us, and if you don't like yourself because of several reasons it would be like telling God he made many mistakes. So I believe, that even if a person might not like their physcial appearence but inside they will always like theirselves, no matter who they are.

There are actually some people who really don't like themselves because of many reasons.Sometimes from their family background and sometimes from mnay hurtful experience in life.That's why people need Jesus to heal them and to release them from all thei self-hatre bondage.If you are not one of them,you should really thank God for that and everything is truely a grace ,but not a must.Well,enjoy your life and enjoy the love of God everyday then.Merry Christmas ,my friend.

I like myself because God created me in His image and likeness. I and everyone of us are special in the eyes of God therefore we are all good and beautiful. And God loves us so much. Even if we sin, we can confess and cleanse our hearts, and be put right back with God. We will never be compared to a garbage that has no use because God gave us life for a reason. We have a mission in this world and that is to spread the Good News about Jesus and sow love to others.

It is good to know that you like yourself and overcome all the self blaming and renew your self worth after a peoiod of times.I hope you will enjoy your life and enjoy your times with your friends and relatives as well.There are times we will experience difficulties but everybody knows that life is not easy and remaining a postive attitude will always be the key to a happy life.However ,we do need some help since we all need the power from Jesus and I hope you can get to know Him too.May you feel God's love all the times and enjoy your life more and more everyday.

I love myself because if you do not love yourself,who else in the world should love you? Everyone in the world has their unique value.LORD created us for His purpose and we should live up to His expections. Sometimes you dislike yourself or underrate yourself for some mistakes you made,but even 4-leg horse stumbles,why 2-leg human cannot fall? Everybody is a marvel in this world. Every part of you is unique:your arms,legs,eyes,nose,mouth,cheeks, and for men,beard. I love my brain,though sometimes it forgets things quite frequently and remembers things uneasily,it has helped finish a lot of difficult exams and come up with some really novel ideas that others do not have. I also like my skin,not so white and perfect,but it is smooth,soft and flexible. I love my heart,sometimes compassionate while too sensitive though. Why do you love yourself? The answer should be: why not?

There is no reason for me not to like myself. I like myself and value myself as well. I am of great importance to my family and to my school as well because I am a hard and diligent staff to the school and a bread-earner for my family. I must keep healthy and work hard.

I do like myself. I think the only thing that make me hate myself is when I lose the ones close to my heart: my family, friends and stuff. I think that will be miserable to lose them. as long as they're with me. everything will be fine.

i think that i like myself,although i am not excellent and very normal people,but i have no reson to treat me very well.i dont know somebody how to treat me and whether they like me?but if i only pay attention to somebody's opions to me,i find that i would be tired for it.the life is not easy thing,i work and study and live as like other people,i live depending what i earn,so i think that i have same right to like myself and respect myself.
