It Hurts to LOVE myself.
I received the following question ( see below) from a person who visits my blog and I don't have an answer for them. If you have any answers or insights you would like to share with this person, post them in the comment section. You can post your comments anonymously.
Q: Why does it hurt to love myself? I especially notice the hurt when I use the affirmation 'I Love Myself'. Every time I repeat those words, I feel them bouncing off some kind of steel shield inside of me that is protecting the hurt I feel. Do you have any insights that can help me understand?
Can you help this person out with your own experiences about loving yourself. Is it easy or hard for you to do? What is the best ways to love yourself. Any comments you can share I am sure will be gratefully appreciated by the person who sent me the question.
I want to thank Robert Milstein for his thoughtful and detailed response to the
question the young man asked me. See his response in the comment section.
