Dear Jonny, Self-love?
Are you in love with yourself?
Not especially. I’m quite the narcissist, but my self-obsession is often a by-product of how much I loathe parts of myself, which is a quiet, unseen, strictly personal battle; and not one I usually discuss. There are times when I could probably be diagnosed as having a God complex, because I am often overly cocky, excessively self-assured, and go out of my way to belittle others in comparison to myself. But I just as easily fall prey to the habit of looking very, very closely at my own character, which usually leaves me absolutely frustrated and remarkably unhappy with a lot of what I see. At least I look.
