The opposite of Love is not Hate, it's indifference!
Love is a feeling of deep affection/attraction or great interest in someone or something.
Indifference is a total lack of interest or concern for something or someone.
I used to hear people talking about self love and i'd think, "I don't hate myself" so I must be ok with who I am?
Well that might well have been true because, after all, HATE is a word infused with energy and intensity but I have
now realised that I was putting zero concern on my real needs. I wasn't taking care of myself mentally and allowed negative thoughts to perpetuate.
I wasn't taking an interest in my body (I'd not set foot in a gym for years). My weight was slowly going up and up and I
could justify it so I had just let go of the will to try to change it.
If I'd hated myself I might have at least had some energy to channel but this indifference was just complete inertia.
What areas of your life are lacking love? How is your indifference causing issues for you in these areas of your life?
