What does this mean?

Does it mean that you're unable to love someone else?
Or that you shouldn't love someone else because you'll use them as a crutch for your insecurities?
The way you feel about yourself is completely different to the way you feel about a romantic partner or friend or family member, so how can you compare the two?

I hear this platitude often but I don't understand what it's supposed to mean.

For me, if you're a miserable sob and hate your life you'll probably make them miserable too. Either from constant whinging, being a fucking debbie downer or just bringing them down in general. I want to do well, be happy and inspire people to do the same. If you're just a sad fuck, it gets wearing and people get tired of it.


So for me its not literally "you cant love somebody until you love yourself". Its more "you will probably be fucking annoying to be around if you don't love yourself thus making relationships harder."

This. Exactly this.


or


I've had the semi-sincere pleasure of watching a large number of people hit the 7 year point in their relationships recently. When their sig other either decides to leave them for greener pastures or opts to get caught pursuing greener pastures - the individual content with the shade of green in their own pasture closely characterizes a cat in socks walking on a sheet of ice. They're awkward, they don't know what THEY like to do, and they've placed the interests of someone else ahead of their own personal interests.

To me, this says that an individual should be knowledgeable of their own desires, ambitions, interests, traits, etc. at a level where they're incapable of losing their personal identity while chasing ass.

it means melancholia sucks that's what it means

and also that if you have a low self-esteem, you're far more likely to get caught in a relationship that's wrong for you

Don't beat yourself up over this.

Or at least break eye contact with me and wait until I leave the room.

relationships can make you like yourself better though ...

like 2 suicidal people on their own are depressed, but together they feel complete
like the opposite of opposites attract, chemistry...

i don't really agree though, i don't think a relationship will be impacted negatively if one person is suicidal, hates themselves, think low of themselves

so many "happily married" people are closeted-suicidal, closeted-depressed
and even their partner has no idea of this
may not be a very healthy relationship, but it certainly isn't wrong

Remember, kids... if you're going to off yourself - get someone else to do it for you. Suicide as a reason for death negates most life insurance policies.

i've literally never seen 'self-love' talked about in a way that wasn't cringey or stupid


that's all i have to say about that


Gozd in gora poj,
silen ženimo hrup,
uboga gmajna, le vpup, le vkup,
le vkup, le vkup z menoj,
staro pravdo v mrak tulimo,
da se pretulimo skozi to zimo

TS, what it means is that whenever you are interested in a girl you should let her know that you are the most fantastic person in human history and that if she doesn't feel the same way she's not worth your time
I have nothing important to say
