Unworthy

Unworthy

A Story by Carol Cashes
"

Not my words, but words I recognize as true

"
Stop telling people that no one will love them until they love themselves.  Stop planting the idea in people's brains that they are unworthy of love because of their own struggle.

While I would never put it to someone in that way, I do believe that loving one's self is important and quite useful. If we walk around feeling like we're dirt, it will show. (Especially when hoping to find romance.) I'm no kind of expert, of course, just an introvert who suffered many years of low self-esteem.

Yes. I have read of these words too. But right now, reading it on your wall, I have a true picture. Love is effortless and can be given by all even when we don't give ourselves. We just need to find the right people. Besides, who can stop suicide if it is not outside love telling the inside love to wake up. Not everyone love themselves enough to live. Sometimes they need others to tell them. So, "telling people that no one will love them until they love themselves..." is untruth.

To the nay-sayers, I dedicate a middle finger rampant.

Totally agree. It may be that they learn to love themselves through loving someone else.

i think the meaning is, "Learn to love yourself first"

When you learn to love yourself , warts and all then you learn an empathy with other people, you see the good and realize that no-one is perfect.
I would never say that no-one will love you if you don't love yourself ..that is absurd

Am only familiar with: You can't truly love someone else unless you first learn to love yourself. Do think this is true.
Agree with your assessment of the faulty philosophy cited in "Unworthy."
Excellent work, Carol!

No one is unworthy it's just the perception of the society.

People will like / love you when they'll find positive vibes are with you. Whether they are going to admit or not that's another issue.
