Narcissists Know They’re Obnoxious, But Love Themselves All the Same | alejandrosanz4englishspeakers.com
Thirty-one years ago, I discovered that learning to love myself was the secret to emotional healing, as well as to joy, inner fullness and fulfillment, and the ability to share love with others — as opposed to always trying to get love. I was stunned when spirit brought me this profound information, along with the pathway to get there, which has become to message of much of my work. Now, many others are starting to discover the importance of self-love. Unfortunately, though, most people have no idea what that actually means. When you love yourself, your achievements are an expression of your being rather than a definition of your being. Of course you have the right to all of your feelings. Loving parents listen to how their children feel with caring, tenderness, gentleness, understanding and an intent to learn.
What It Feels Like To Be In Love With Someone Who Loves Themselves More
He appeared to be the perfect boyfriend: smart, charismatic, cute, and looking for a serious relationship. My ex took all the right steps in the relationship: introduce me to the family, ask me to be his girlfriend, tell me he loves me, and talk about our future together. Unfortunately, he never really wanted any of those things. That is what narcissists and emotional abusers do — they make false promises and trap you in a fake life.
Most people think that self-love is staring really hard in the mirror telling yourself that you love your body, even though you spent years at war with your reflection staring back at you. But self-love is actually more about getting into a relationship with yourself. So, nurturing that relationship is crucial — and believe it or not, greatly impacts all of your other relationships too. How you feel about yourself will invite in the standard of relationship you are accepting into your life. Essentially, you are teaching others how to love you, by the way you love yourself.
