To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance!” Oscar Wilde

Just a gentle reminder to love and appreciate yourself. Often before others can love you, you need to love yourself. And, it’s not a fling but a lifelong endeavor.

  2. The sentiment may sound pretty and may be generally accepted and all but I think the cult of self love has done tremendous damage. We’ve become a society of narcissists and crybabies, many of us both. Self love is unnecessary, in my slightly-less-than-humble opinion. We already instinctively put ourselves first, even when we appear to be putting others first – our sacrifices for others being expenses for what in the end is a net benefit to ourselves. If you want others to love and appreciate you, a better start might be to love and appreciate them. But I guess that assumes “them” are actual people in one’s physical life rather than Youtube channel subscribers so maybe I’m touting an outdated solution. Still, I think there’s far too much self love and I can’t help but cringe when I see Simone Biles being lauded for ditching her teammates or Emma Watson for being “self-partnered”. And don’t even get me started on the whole personal truth thing. In my day a personal truth that was inconsistent with actual truth was called a delusion and it was considered a symptom of mental illness. Now it’s given the same validity as actual truth because, after all, we’re all entitled to have things be what we want them to be, not what they actually are.
