In today’s backwards culture, we are continuously encouraged to hate ourselves, especially if we fall under certain criteria. You know what I’m talking about.
Also, we’re being brainwashed into believing that if we hate ourselves because of some kind of “privilege,” or because we’re Americans, or Westerners, or middle class, or because we own a business, because we’re successful-or whatever, then it shows that we’re morally good. Know that it’s only virtue signaling at its finest, and it’s all a bunch of hogwash!
You should never apologize for who you are, nor should you feel guilty about any successes or qualities that you have.
Here’s why you shouldn’t hate yourself no matter what anyone, including your bullies, the media, and certain politicians tell you:
1. If they can get you to hate yourself, then they can make you self-destruct. Understand that if you hate yourself, it isn’t to your own benefit, it’s only to theirs (bullies, media, politicians, the elite, etc.) Also, if they can get you to hate yourself, they can talk you into doing the most degrading and demeaning things- like bow down and kneel before other people, when the only person you should bow to is The Lord, Almighty.
2. Anyone who can get you to hate yourself can make you feel guilty for things that you had nothing to do with and that aren’t your fault. They can get you to subjugate yourself, and make you feel that you must “atone” for that (false) guilt.
3. Understand that people who hate themselves are easily led because they are yes-people who are too eager to please. They try so hard to show the rest of the world, they’re morally good- that they’re above certain things. These people will jump through hoops to prove they’re decent people.
But folks, if you already know yourself and know without a doubt that you’re a good, moral, and decent person, why then would you feel you must bend over backwards and make such a concerted effort to prove that?
You wouldn’t. Because, if you know yourself, you know that the goodness, morals, and decency are already there whether others know it or not. Your conscience is clear, and you know that you’ve done nothing wrong. Therefore, you instinctively know that anything the media, politicians, or anyone on the street might put out does not apply to you.
Anyone who virtue signals- who has to work so hard and put on a show to prove something to others can’t have a clear conscience- so they must pander, virtue signal, and really strain themselves not only to prove to the rest of the world that they’re on top of the moral mountain, but to ease their guilty conscience.
On the other hand, if your conscience is clear and you know that none of the narratives apply to you, you wouldn’t waste your time and energy trying to prove it.
You know where I’m going with this.
No matter where you come from, it’s best to love yourself just the way God made you and turn a deaf ear to the lies of The Enemy!
With knowledge comes empowerment!

“But folks, if you already know yourself and know without a doubt that you’re a good, moral, and decent person, why then would you feel you must bend over backwards and make such a concerted effort to prove that?” I got stuck in this thinking for a long time, I came to understand it was caused by the persistence of my Bullies and their many emails during 19 months of HRTO process. I felt stuck in trying to prove to HRTO that all their allegations made towards me are false. I didn’t know that they could also see in their writings what I came to see. I was so lost at the time, I didn’t know what I do now. I have no need to that anymore.
I can only imagine, Stella. I’m so proud of how far you’ve come. You’ve finally realized that you don’t need to prove a damn thing to anybody and that is how you’ve taken back your personal power! Keep sparkling sweetie! 🌟✨🌟✨
Yep, it is epiphany time.. lol I have had a few these days! Thanks Cherie!
You’re most welcome, Stella! 😊
Backwards culture it is. Best description ever
Thank you so much! This means a lot! 💖💕
It is a crazy world where not even Crocodile Dundee can determine gender and common cold symptoms become “depression.”
You got that right! 💯
So nice post . Self love is the best love ♥️
Absolutely it is! Thank you so much, Soumen! 😊
I couldn’t have said it better myself ❤️
Thank you so much, Jim. 🤗💕
But I DO HATE Me…. What to do??
Count all your good qualities, Lance. I know you have at least one. 🙂
Yeah. Just one: I served my country.
Hey, that’s more than a lot of people have done, Lance. Many people are too scared to sign up! But surely you can come up with one or two more good qualities. 😊
Sure… lemme think… Oh Yeah! I chew with my mouth closed… in polite company.
🤣😂🤣😂I love your candor!
Thank you so much! 😀
I should not ‘Pester’ your page so much, but I find so much value here.
Thank you so much, Lance! 😊You can pester my page all you like!
Sorry…I ain’t fallin’ for it! There are enough people hating me, for whatever their twisted reasons may be, and I don’t need to add to the slippery slope!!! 🤨😠😱 Another great reminder Cherie my dear! Let’s hope others will stop falling for such craziness too! 😝
Thank you, sweetie! 💖💕And DANG! You think like I do! I’ve said the same, “I’ve got enough people who hate me, I’m not about to help them along!” 😊😊😊
Booyah! Whoop there it is!!! 🤜🏼🤛🏼
🎶”Tag team, back again…”🎶💃
Thank you for these reminders, Cherie. I have too often been a yes-person, too eager to please or take the blame when it wasn’t even any of my business or burden!
Great article and I absolutely agree. People who want to diminish others and drive them into a state of guilt and self loathing are filled with the hate they want others to feel and be consumed by. Nothing is worse than turning this hatred towards children. Innocence is susceptible to this evil manipulation.
You nailed it, Joan! This people are truly miserable souls. And when they turn their hatred toward children, it’s as if they’re trying to set them up for a life of low self-esteem!
Ugh I’m so guilty of this! Just the other day something someone said about me and make me feel bad about myself and I allowed it to ruin the rest of my day when I know without a doubt that I am doing the very best that I can. Thank you very much for that beautiful reminder!
You’re most welcome, LaShelle! And naturally, you’re going to feel bad. But you didn’t hate yourself and that’s the important thing. We’re all humans with feelings and when someone cuts us down, it’s normal to be hurt.
You nailed it!! I always wanted to ask you when is your birthday?? Summer?
I’m a Taurus! ♉️ 😊
I knew I was close. I was thinking a Gemini. I’m always cool with Taurus tho!!
Thank you. 😊
Nice one…never, never and never ever shall you allow anything to make you hate yourself because once you start hating yourself then you are screwed big time.
Absolutely, you’re screwed! 💯 Thank you so much for your thoughts on this important topic! Sending you lots of love and hugs! 💖💐🌹
🙏🙏🙏 ❤️ U…
I realise I’m stuck in this cycle of bending over backwards with my parents. I’m always wondering why I feel so guilty and stupid. I don’t feel able to step out of it though. I do when I’m alone long enough, but otherwise it’s really difficult because they never stop expressing hatred in the form of their concern.
My heart goes out to you! I’m so sorry they treat you so badly. It’s especially painful when the abuse comes from people you love and who is supposed to love you. 💔
Another wonderful post, Cherie!
Thank you so much, Kally! 💖
Oh gosh. Yes. This. Clap.
Thank you so much, Selma! 💖 This means a lot!
Nice write-up for building self confidence.
Thank you so much, Veena! 💖 This means a lot! 😊
