The importance of self-love

You cannot give what you do not have and it is not viable to perceive or transmit love if we do not understand what love is.

And then… How do we learn to love ourselves if we have not felt loved or our concept of love is wrong?

There are people who confuse self-love with selfishness, but in reality, if love is the protagonist, selfishness would be the antagonist. There is no room for ego within love.
