How can one learn self-love, if they were never taught or exposed to it?

How can one learn self-love, if they were never taught or exposed to it? This was one of many topics that was brought to light during the monthly topic party, hosted by the The Outlet. A topic that made me research and learn more about what self-love truly means. Especially after hearing others stories and opinions about self-love. People who have more self-love tend to know what they think, feel, and want. They also can express and communicate their emotions and feelings to others properly. Many of us hold in our hurt and just keep walking through life thinking we are good. When we start the process of self-hate, it’s because we forgot the tools to communicate to others and ourselves. We let our pain take over, and we lose sight of seeing who we are. So we need to let that out and communicate it to others properly, because all we are doing is causing harm to ourselves and our loved ones. After hearing viewpoints and stories from others, as well as me going through my own struggles. I came to the conclusion that you have to learn how to love yourself. That means you must have the willingness to learn and to be able to put yourself around others who understand what self-love really is. Growing up, self-love is something that is not exposed to everyone. Of course, people tell you to love yourself. But it is deeper than just saying that. You have to actually know how to communicate, have emotional intelligence, and not be selfish in your thoughts and ways. Only then you will you be able not to just love your self more, but others as well. The next topic party will be at The Studio HTX, in Houston, Texas on June 29, 2019.

[The following is written during a time of great depression of being blinded by logics, failure, sin, and sadness of lost loved ones. I, John, was so determined to not feel what I was going through again, that I wrote a letter to myself warning me. This is a sincere letter from the present me (at that current time of darkness) to the future me (overcomer of darkness).]

Dear me, Dear Conqueror

I’m speaking to you from one of the dryest places I’ve seen in my life. Take heed to this reminder to never allow yourself to enter this dark desert again if it be up to you. My faith isn’t the strongest, and I get angry at the place I’m in. Questioning God has become repetitive and I’ve even found myself angry at him. I feel useless. My safe place is an image of me being the unknown, In…

Racism has been going on for eternity. Can we stop it? It’s unlikely, but we all can put in a better effort to solve the problem. As of late, racism has been the main factor in a couple events. First, the murder of Trayvon Martin where the 17-year-old was murdered because he looked suspicious and was wearing a hoodie smh. Then the controversy over the movie “Hunger Games”.
