For many people, the concept of self-love might conjure images of tree-hugging hippies or cheesy self-help books. But, as many psychology studies attest, self-love and compassion are key for mental health and well-being, keeping depression and anxiety at bay. In this liminal time of COVID flux, maybe what we all need is a little self-love.

Self-love or pride is a sin when, instead of leading you to share with others the self you love, it leads you to keep yourself in perpetual safe-deposit. You not only don’t accrue interest that way but become less and less interesting every day.
