Name: Love yourself ~ 348.366

"Don't forget to fall in love with yourself first ."

Lots of people go into relationships and still pity themselves too much . Personally , I find self pity really unattractive .. I like people who are confident with themselves , but not overly confident that they come cocky . So , in life , learn to love yourself first .. just not too much so you come self obsessed haha (:

p.s. sorry it's a bit blurry , I didn't notice until I started to edit it ):

Haha i should just have a favorite's folder called 'ErinBird!' xD

Totally agree! My sister got out of a 4 year relationship because the guy felt he couldn't help her love herself and stop self hatred anymore, he couldn't take it. Finally she's starting *hopefully, i think!* to love herself and has a new boyfriend : D

This was my problem along, i didnt love myself. But then again it was just my understanding of love that was wrong. :) Love all of your work.
i dont have time to message them all but this one was personal to me. :)

I have this very same prob...I'm paranoid and scared and have no self confidence because of the constant feedback from my mom saying I'm stupid or dull (and "colorful" words) so that is why I see my relationship with her as rocky and also a contributing factor to who I am today....scared and paranoid about what others think of me and how I fit into the world.

:hug: I also get really paranoid also .. I know how it feels . I used to get so self-conscious of being constantly judged and worried about what people say about me and ungh it sucks - but overtime , i've leanrt that I don't really care what people say about me anymore haha (: .
But hopefully you'll meet someone who'll really love you and remind you how special you are every day . (: hang in there girl :heart: (and also your art is really amazing !)

Wouldn't that be narcissism? or just vanity? Those are generally seen as bad things, feeding self-obsession and creating a lack of regard towards others.
I'll continue to dislike myself, thanks, it keeps me honest.

If you read the description , it said you should love yourself too a certain amount .
Reply
:iconross-sanger:
Ross-Sanger Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012
but the note says "fall in love", which isn't the same thing as love in terms of compassion, fraternal love, or sense of self-worth.

hmm, sometimes that's what I think. I think people just interpret it the wrong way by exaggerating it. When people say "love yourself" they mean "Respect yourself. Be thankful of how you look with love" I think....
Reply
:iconross-sanger:
Ross-Sanger Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012
But loving yourself in terms of appreciating yourself and having self worth is not the same as falling in love.
