15 ways to love yourself (more)

I used to get so annoyed when people would say things like “you can’t love anyone more than you love yourself.” Or “there’s nothing more important than loving yourself.” Or worse, when people would suggest annoyingly woo-woo things like looking in the mirror and saying “I love you” over and over.
