We live in a very narcissistic society. From constantly updating our Facebook pages to documenting our every move via Twitter, finding people who are concerned with their own lives—and aren’t afraid to share it—is not a difficult task.
But despite all of the hype we create about ourselves and our lives, do we really love ourselves?
I was over on Paul Carrick Brunson’s site OneDegreeFromMe when I happened upon his video entitled, “Do You Love Yourself?”
If you asked most people this question, the overwhelming majority would reflexively answer, “Hell yeah, I love myself!” but this isn’t always the case.
Although we may like ourselves, and hell, may even be cool with who we are (or are becoming), getting to the place of total self-acceptance and self-love can be an arduous task.
With the media constantly bombarding us with messages that we are too fat, too skinny, too bossy, too broke, too ambitious, or [insert any perceived negative attribute here], it’s hard to really love and accept yourself for who you are.
