It is important that you love yourself.

In a mirror, look yourself in the eye.  Say out loud ‘I love you’.  You may not like some of the things you do, or have done, but that does not stop you loving yourself!

When you have mastered this exercise, you will really love yourself – fake it until you make it.  You can then love everybody, you don’t have to like them, just LOVE them.  Generate a feeling of unconditional love where ever you are.
