I disagree...everybody needs to love themselves, that's the first step
Absolutely, positively, without a doubt.
Without love, what is the reason to live ?
I would think so, but I'm not absolutely sure about that.
I suppose it's more like people need to feel important or they need a certain type of attention. Might be love and it might be something else. But it does seem like some people are just fine with not being "loved" as long as they are feared or respected.
I'm not sure about that though, as I am of the "need to be loved" set.
