“Self-love also involves humility, which is self-expression form the heart and not from the ego. Humility says, “I am open. I am willing to listen. I may not have all the answers.” Humility is one of the qualities that will allow you to receive more, for humility implies openness. It does not imply a lack of self-confidence, but a great amount of faith and trust in yourself.
Those who act the most arrogant or coldly confident are those who lack the very characteristics they are trying to project. People who love themselves come across as very loving, generous and kind; they express their self-confidence through humility, forgiveness and inclusiveness. If you know people who seem to be very wise and yet put others down, reject friends, make people feel bad about themselves – matter how high their words or what they teach, you can rest assured they do not love themselves.”
Sanaya Roman, in “Living with Joy”
