Great mentality, sis!  If we learn to appreciate and love ourselves, we can love others freely.  If we respect ourselves, we will be respectful to others and not allow ourselves to be treated disrespectfully.  There is freedom in that.  Great message. xo ;)

Great thoughts and words, Silky. 
Most people don't love themselves, I don't think. I know I'm not a big fan of me, but I suppose it's not all my fault. The world is complex, and sometimes makes us question our choices, and movements, yet we don't know exactly what they mean. 
It's a mad world, like the song, and sometimes the dreams we have of dying are the best we've ever had. lol. 
Great job, 

Matthew.

REFLECTION ON, WHAT ? If, you think too much of yourself you can appear arrogant, as well as " DISTANT " ! ( if, you know what I mean, " Sunny Jim " !! ). I only wish to point out " dangers " in " appreciating " your " SELF ", too much. I know, you get, that !!
LIVE, WITH HUMILITY. Being " modest " and humble, in nature, means you attract more to you. YOU WANT FRIENDS, DO YOU NOT ?
The " way " of it, is to make yourself an " island " stronghold, but one with bananas !!! The ladies like that.....and the heat. You, should know, being a " poet ", and all that......" conjures " up.
FEEDING THE FRENZY, should be " right " up " your street ", should it not ? Romantic passionate overtures require " humble pie ", and not some quasi-egotistical " shangri-la " !!! :) :) You, have to accept responsibilities of any position you take.
YOU MUST NOT " HATE " YOURSELF. Others are allowed to....if, they see things differently, to you. But, you are not. The " craft " comes, from this. Expressing what you are about, and involved in, without ignoring feelings of others is KEY. Appreciate what the rest are going through, at any time, to bring a " lighter touch " to proceedings.
OTHER THAN MINOR ALTERATIONS TO THE IMPRESSION GIVEN HERE, I SUSPECT MUCH " HOLDS " TRUE. For you. And " pyscophantic " causation remedial study, beyond normal stimulatory actions. It provides an  " insight " into the weaker soul, yearning for acceptance, against the " odds ", due to incorrect magnifications of " worthy " definitions. Perhaps, related to an " inferiority complex. " Do you not think ?
A work to " create " DISCUSSION and DEBATE, rather than  " emotion ", I feel !! :) !! All, the best, to you......friend. :) :)
