A very short question yet so hard to answer for me. Sometimes i hate myself, sometimes i am angry with myself. I am not sure whether i love myself... How about you? Do you love yourself??

YES, self-love is very important for person to grow spiritually, mentally, and physically healthy. Try to understand your self much better, maybe that could help you tackle the real problem that makes you hate yourself and feel angry. I experience disappointments and episodes of depression too, but even when I allow myself to feel upset, it doesn't mean that I don't love myself anymore. Loving yourself is about taking care of it, and not doing anything to harm it. I used to cut wrists too, but now I stopped. I learned to overcome it with self-love. It takes a lot of strength, maturity and determination to come to this place.

I do love myself. Sometimes I do stupid things and could kick myself in the butt. Sometimes I think some pretty bad things, but I still love myself.

I have done that too. So, to be fair to myself, I reward myself when I accomplish something.

sometimes i hate myself for having things done differently when i know i should have done it the right way. but as time goes,you must admit to yourself that past is past. face the present time for it is a gift not to be wasted. start loving yourself,before loving anyone else. if you know how to accept ur own failures.you will learn how to deal with others.

hi annavi, learning thru our own experiences is the best teacher for oneself. i learned that loving oneself is knowing what your strength is and believing that you can do every possible thing on you own way. we may made mistakes which we can say we hate our selves but it was just a way which we can learn things. loving our self can be difficult, esp when you don't trust yourself. thanks for responding!

One day my teacher asked me, which letter in English alphabet you like the most and i said the ninth letter because it is "I"......... Friends i really like myself and i think that it is the case of everybody too. If we don't like our self, then who will love you? I love the way i talk, i walk,i eat and everything .... Always think that you are good and not the perfect ,then only we can do something in this modern world.

Of course I love myself, even though sometimes we have to hate what we have done but still we must love ourselves. About often we make mistakes that sometimes make us feel so stupid, this is the life we must live. Because it will not stop our lives just by making mistakes. Fix yourself to love yourself.

every "i love you" sentence starts with the letter "I". i hope you get my point on that. you cannot give love and be happy if you don't have that with yourself, because you should be the first person to do it. i remember a line from a movie which i already forget the title, it says "a person who fears nothing, is a person who loves nothing. and if a person loves nothing, what joy is in his heart?". i hope you could read his lines about love to ones self.

90% of the people around the world dont like the way they look and behave. This is according to a survey. Even the most beautiful looking film personalities get cosmetic surgeries done precisely for this reason. This is one of the reason for developing inferiority complex in us. Yes i like dont like my looks and my own behaviour sometimes hehehehe

Hmm..i guess so, but they also do that because they are never satisfied with their looks.. but how about our attitude? Attitude cannot be change thru plastic surgery or any surgery at all.

I definitely love myself. I may be angry with myself for some of the mistakes that I made or opportunities that I lost. But I would eventually get over them easily. I would never torture myself with these thoughts.

I do have a lot of insecurities with regard with my physical features. I think I don't love myself.LOL. I've had made decisions that are too shameful to bear and my being fickle-minded adds up. I really hate myself.LOL

We spend so much of our time waiting to be loved, hoping love will find us, searching, yearning for that special love. Feeling empty and lost without it. Wanting someone to give us love and fill us up. Unfortunately, that’s not usually how life works. You will draw to you exactly what you create in life, and what you believe you are worthy of. So loving yourself can create love in your life. The simple answer is, yes I do.
