Loving ourselves represents the unknown. We are not familiar with love and how it feels to be loved or what is involved in being loved or loving others. Love is experienced as an unknown, correlated with loss, impending hurt, and destruction, as opposed to gain, happiness, well-being, and new life.
Having lost our sense of trust and security in ourselves, we place our value and security in possessions, attitudes, and behaviors. Examples include our emotional dependence on money, sex, status, work, status of partner and friends, perfection ideals, good deeds, group validation, exceptional children, a perfect house, caretaking of others, promotion of others, completing tasks on our list, agreement for our ideas and beliefs, and reducing others as less than (minorities, women, children, etc.)
Having lost our sense of trust and security in ourselves, we become attached to feeling controlled, restricted, and directed by outside sources of power and authority. We give up our personal power to our parents, spouses, friends, psychics, healers, as opposed to acknowledging ourselves and our own intuitive knowings as the ultimate source of power and authority.
We resist loving ourselves due to feelings of regret and a lack of forgiveness for having rejected, discarded, desexualized, and destroyed ourselves in the past, based on erroneous childhood perceptions of being at fault and because we direct at ourselves the conviction of our badness that was absorbed in the course of our childhood conditioning.
