When it comes to understanding your feelings, self-love is crucial to deepen your relationship with yourself, work ethic, lifestyle, and overall how your brain works. Nevertheless, with this profound journey of understanding who you truly are, outside opinions have developed an inability to decipher between self-love and narcissistic behavior.
How do we know we are talking to a narcissist or someone who knows their worth? What is the largest factor in knowing you are being manipulated by a narcissist or if the person is simply strong-headed?
To put it simply, demonstrating self-love entails knowing yourself and having the ability to neglect external negative opinions about who you are as a person. Self-love entails two key components.
self-respect and self-esteem. Both of these components are necessary in order for a person to understand who they are, what they are looking for in life, and more importantly, not being susceptible to manipulation that will deter them from their goal
someone who practices self-love understands how to surround themselves with healthy relationships and demonstrate self-nurture. They also seek out constructive criticism, because they continuously want to grow. In essence, people who practice self-love acknowledge their flaws and strengths and are thankful for who they are. In contrast, narcissists display the opposite behavior.
There are many who may or may not have childlike faith, but who behave in childish ways. Jesus wants us to be childlike, not childish.
Childlike faith trusts. Childlike faith knows no bounds. Childlike faith listens to what is said, and believes it.
For her house leads down to death
And her paths lead to the dead;
19 None who go to her return again,
Nor do they regain the paths of life—
20 So you will walk in the way of good men [that is, those of personal integrity, moral courage and honorable character],
And keep to the paths of the righteous.
Whoever finds his life [in this world] will [eventually] lose it [through death], and whoever loses his life [in this world] for My sake will find it [that is, life with Me for all eternity].
But if it is not worthy, take back your blessing of peace. 14 Whoever does not welcome you, nor listen to your message, as you leave that house or city, shake the dust [of it] off your feet [in contempt, breaking all ties]. 15 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, it will be more tolerable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that city [since it rejected the Messiah’s messenger].
