I think if you love someone else, you probably already do love yourself, even if it's only so little that you haven't noticed. We are so rarely aware of what is really going on in our own minds.

Oh there's no need to hope for anything in future. It's not sour. It's not sweet. It's not sweet and sour.
It's simple, pure love. The kind that actually makes one happy.

If you read it properly you will realize that it's not a "sour" story.

If you don`t even love you ,no one else can truly love you...oh people will say they do,but without a true sense of your own self worth it really isn`t likely to come knocking

I don't mind waiting. When that day comes it'll be worthy of dunking my chicken nuggets in.

No, first you are loved, by hopefully a mother or father or whomever is raising you.

Yes. Loving yourself isn't necessary. I don't love myself. I only like and respect myself. I can love other people just fine. I know there are other people who love without directing the emotion towards themselves, therefore this subject is like asking me if it's possible for people to only enjoy salty or sweet foods. Love directed outwards and self-love aren't completely intertwined, and too much of either can be destructive and even keep the other from occurring. The extreme of self-love is megalomania, with fanaticism as the extreme of outward-love.

Now, be creative and imagine a fanatic megalomaniac, if only for fun.

It would be annoying if your partner kept complaining about themselves being ugly. I definitely would have to have someone who was either confident or didn't care. And there is nothing "beautifully tragic" about loving someone when they can't love themselves. It's "horribly pathetic". And I mean that in the most sincere way. You have to learn to love yourself; after all, you are stuck in your meat suit until the day you die. Might as well learn to embrace it.

I think it is possible for this to actually happen. Imagine a situation where you hate yourself, you know this, you can only hate yourself if you know what love is by either feeling it or having it for another.

Hate and Love are just two sides of the same coin, you can't have one without the other.

It's so easy, it's like you love some one more then you love your self.

if they make you feel good (love for them) and you enjoy that feeling and so permit yourself to feel that way, who says you don't actually love yourself?

I hate myself, but I've fallen in love with someone before. To the point where they're all I can think about, I lie in bed awake just thinking about them, everything they do seems perfect to me... you know, the whole nine yards.

I believe that you can still find others incredible while still finding yourself awful. You can't expect them to love you back at all, but it wouldn't stop me from loving them an incredible amount more than I love myself.


That's not love.


I see that we have different definitions...

What is your definition of love?

For me, it is that they become the center of your world. You'd do anything for them- you would be willing to die in order to secure their well-being. They shine so brightly to you that it is difficult to see their flaws. Sure, you can acknowledge that they have them, but it is near impossible to focus on those flaws. In my definition of love, though, it cannot be short-lived. Still to this day I feel the same way about this person. I've tried to "get over it," but I just cannot do so. I still cannot expect this person to love me back (I have found that they do not feel the same way), but as I said, by my definition, I am in love. I'll ask again, what is your definition?

you don't have to feel anything thou and still think you love them because of your actions which are unoriginal and you despise

Well, what exactly is love? Because my idea of love is that you give your all and share yourself with someone. How, then can you do that when you despise yourself? How can you selflessly give / share something you find despicable to someone and call that love?


If you're doing it selflessly, then presumably you only care about what the other person thinks and not about your own opinion about whether or not something is despicable, eh?
