    Leslie Becker-Phelps, PhD posted:
    Loving yourself is key in feeling good each and every day of your life. It means that you accept yourself as you are and truly care about your experiences. You have compassion for the difficulties and pains that befall you in lifeā€¦ even when they seem self-inflicted. (You understand that you would not have inflicted pain on yourself if you knew how to handle things better and truly feel happy.)

    What do you see as signs that people loves themselves? And what have your struggles been in trying to love yourself?
