A lot of self-help out there identifies a lack of real self-love as a core problem for relationship issues and general unhappiness in life.
This is not to be confused with narcissism or other appearances of "confidence" that may actually be masking a damaged core.
What do you think "loving yourself" actually means, looks like, and feels like in practice?
Self-talk may be one thing - how we speak to ourselves, the inner voice. But what else?
I hear more about what indicates lack of self-love and what it feels like, what someone looks like in general when they do feel it (ie more magnetic, compassionate, confident, etc), but not much about what is actually going on internally for them or how they cultivate it.
What are your thoughts?
