there are probably a million self help books on the market that give imo superficial advice on how to love yourself, but i really think it is a lot less complicated than we make it.
you have to have a clear cut standard by which you judge a person's worthiness of being loved. if your standards are shallow, based solely off superficial characteristics, you're setting yourself up for failure because you will judge yourself by that same shallow criteria and shallow sh*t is ever changing, forever elusive.
on the other hand, if you think kind, empathetic, generous people are worthy of being loved, make sure you are living up to that standard yourself. how could you not love yourself if you are the embodiment of all the things you admire in others?
