I was at a meeting the other day of 20 or so professionals talking about friendship. The conversation was interesting at times, confusing at others.
At one point, someone asked "Who doesn't love themselves?". My hand shot almost unconsciously, then I noticed that mine was the only hand up.
Apparently I was seated with 19 people who loved themselves. Does that seem possible? I suppose everyone has a different definition of love so maybe they do love themselves by their standards. But from what I heard during the conversation there were plenty of people who had things they didn't like about themselves.
I think I'm a bit of a dreamer because if I loved myself I would fly around the world in a bubble like Glinda the Good Witch of the North. I'm also not even quite sure that if I loved myself I would know it. I just know when I don't.
Maybe someday I won't be so aware that I don't then I will....
