Do You Love Yourself?
    #3849034 - 02/28/05 10:37 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I mean, do you really, love yourself, despite..?

For me, it's at moments when I'm down, that I realize how much I do love myself..I couldn't love Me so much if I didn't feel hate, or dislike toward myself at times, or could I...I love the complexities and hypocrasies I encompass, and at the same time loathe them...

What does loving yourself mean to You?...

Sometimes it means hating part of my integrated self.
Regarding the psyche, do you believe in the concept of balance ?

I'm getting there. It's easier for me to love myself if I'm making something of myself, which I haven't done for a couple years.

Well, If you're happy with it more power to you. Nobody says that you should. (Well some people do... just ignore them) You aren't going to go blind or anything  :laugh:. Spirituality imo shouldn't be about giving up desires to live a drab existence, just about knowing how to moderate them.

Sometimes I hate the aspects of my personality that prevent me from doing something I know I would enjoy... for example, I tend to be shy with women, at least until we talk a lot and become friends :wink: But overall I love myself, and I get physical sometimes.

The first time I droped acid I realized how wonderful my life is, how full of oportunities and mysteries. I felt I could do anything, become anything I wanted to be, and have great adventures... and I really felt love for myself... I was greateful for life and I decided I wouldn't waste it. So far, I'm having a great time and I think it's going to get even better.

Wow.  Deja vu.  I had to check and recheck the dates of the initial post to make sure that I hadn't read it about a month or so ago.

I swear, someone posted this exact same thing just a month or so ago, right?  I really am having a difficult time believing that the initial post was just posted on March 1. 

Is someone fucking with me?  :grin:

I like me just fine. I recently saw a psychiatrist so that I could get a prescription for Adderall. He was telling me things about how I could change myself. I told him I like myself just the way I am, tyvm.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
