Some people recoil at the idea of self-love, mixing it up with narcissism and indulgence in oneself. Self-love means caring for and appreciating yourself, paying close attention to your own spiritual growth, health, happiness, needs, and support systems, while simultaneously noticing patterns of behavior that might be detrimental to yourself.
