    Love for yourself is, first of all, accepting yourself the way you are, with all your merits and demerits, it’s a feeling of your integrity. On the contrary, selfishness refuses to see its faults and doesn’t want to admit them; it makes attempts to compare itself with the others in own favor. And demonstrates the traits it loves, the ones it’s confident about, and the selfishness attention is focused only on own needs while ignoring the others.

    Selfishness is designed to conceal inner void through an attempt to fill yourself with external things. As if sweets, cosmetics, a great car or SPA procedures could compensate for the lack of love and care to originate from childhood. As a rule, selfishness satisfies false needs forming the facade of the personality. The egoist always takes advantage of somebody and doesn’t care how the other people feel about it. He is a throwing away his "needy" part, placing it into the others: let the others feel cold and starve, and I will be well-fed and dressed...

As a rule, such people act according to the scheme “Put a sweater on – I'm cold!”

    Love for yourself should be expressed in self-care, in the first turn. It means taking care of your health, appearance, satisfying your own, not someone else’s desires. It means that you need to follow the principles of information hygiene – don’t overload your mind with different negative things.

    Love for yourself, first of all, means attention to self-development: intellectual, spiritual, psychological, and professional. This is a valuable skill: to be able to create comfort around oneself, both physical and emotional. It is a skill to enjoy one’s achievements, success, self-development and to forgive one’s false steps and failures.
