I've discovered the difference between ego and loving yourself. Ego is all about the attention U get from others, how much they love U and recognition. Everyone has those needs. Mine were higher. But loving yourself is about what you do for yourself to look after yourself and nurture your needs in all spheres. So giving it to yourself. Interesting how when someone has a big ego others tend to say they love themselves, but that's not the case at all. They're in fact looking elsewhere for love.
