Figured I'd throw this one out and see what others think. I have no clue who first came up with the cliche that "To love someone else you must first love yourself," but for some weird reason I've heard it two or three times this week and it is starting to piss me off. Needless to say, I disagree. I absolutely do not love myself, yet I can think of five people that I do think I love (my wife, my son, my father, my mother and my sister.) I guess what I find most irritating about this is how dogmatic those making this claim seem to be. On what basis do they make it? How the hell can they know? Does anyone here agree with that proposition? Figured this would go better here than in "Let it all out," for the simple reason that I'm interested hearing somebody defend the proposition, though I have no idea how you'd do it.
