You are nobody till somebody loves you

Dean Martin popularized the song “You’re nobody till somebody loves you…” but the truth of it is the singer had it all wrong.

Someone loving you doesn’t matter that much. There are all kinds of tortured souls that can love even the most pathetic human beings.

Truthfully, the song should have gone something like this:  “You’re nobody till somebody loves you…And that somebody needs to be you.”

Without self-love, love for others is insecure, jealous, possessive, and controlling.

For reasons too numerous to expound here, I grew up with little, if any, self-love.  My parents were anything but loving. At times, they were destructive, even loathing.  If they displayed so much loathing, how could I love myself?
