Self-love isn’t totally about knowing that you’re beautiful or intelligent or special. It’s about loving yourself despite not feeling that you’re any of those things.

  1. You just perfectly described what the Tibetans call “Buddha Nature” — the spark of pure love and wisdom in the heart of every person, no matter how obscured it may be by one’s conscious mental state. Depression, anger, fear, despondency, envy and greed can’t tarnish it. But I don’t see it as a purely Buddhist notion…it’s always there and it’s indestructible whether or not you sit around in the lotus position for hours on end. It’s the true essence of everyone.
