I’ve heard/read that it’s strangely sometimes by taking ur time to truly HELP those who are in really need (Note: strong emphasis: NOT on people who actually *not* really in need, and they just want to take advantage of you. Stay clear from people like this, in fact, when u’re being ASSERTIVE to them, then u’ll suddenly feel good about you standing up for YOURself, trust me!), instead of only “thinking and caring and loving about me, me, and me only”,..then you will start feeling that u’re *worthy*, u’re valuable, even LOVED back (Positive will yield Positives, given in the RIGHT places & people), and that you DO have something to give/share and make a difference. And THEN, you will start feeling differently about yourself, trust me. Because the truth is: the feeling you feel right now is NOT you. Feeling is fleeting, and can be CHANGED, if u want & truly do ‘work’ for it. Log in to Reply i dunno 3/22/2011 - 3:11 pm you don’t “have” to love yourself, but you do anyway. It’s the expression of love that is tough for many of us. Also, perceptive people can feel your love, even if you think you don’t love them.

I’m sure you can be chemically induced into loving yourself therefore… but it’s probably not all that legal. Log in to Reply mangomango 3/22/2011 - 7:54 pm No, I don’t think so. BUT why don’t you love yourself? Personally, I believe in God, so I believe there is every reason to love yourself — because God loves you. If God loves you, then you must be loveable. Your intrinsic value comes in the fact that you are human and made by His hands. And no matter how much you’ve screwed up (and we’ve all screwed up), He still loves you. I’d love to talk to you, no matter what you believe. It’s good to make friends and just have someone to talk to. http://www.knowgodpersonally.org/ <– this is if you want to know more about God, and how you can have a relationship with Him. Please check it out! 🙂 You're worth so much more than you think. Log in to Reply KevinThorn 3/30/2011 - 6:36 pm Thank you, niki i hope your right.
