“There are many good, sound, and favorable aspects to self-love, as well as selfishness, egoism and self-indulgence.
The full definition that could be applied to self-love has an unlimited source of personal attentions and gainful attempts.
Love for the family has many diversifications, and in its total meaning covers a multiple of human traits, human inhibitions, human protective reasonings, human needs, human determinations on just what love for family should show, should direct, and what should result from it.
Love for friends can be a responsive love of association, for association, a need for understanding and communication, a reliability upon personal response to feelings, emotions, habits, intellectual understanding and/or agreement of moral values and standards.
Love for self-need can denote weakness, possessiveness, lonesomeness, inability to cope with surroundings, life; or it can even suggest the inability to mature, accepting responsibility that should be characterized by one’s own motivations to share, to be charitable, and to care for others where it is needed, where it is expected, where it is without a return to compliment the giver.
Love for mankind is so varied, and in its very essence displays Godlike caring, sharing, helping, extending hope, and asking nothing in return.
False ideas of what love means or should be approached, used, or even recognized, puts love in an area of lust, greed, imitation of sound caring, and in many ways, fanciful gifts to encourage a return of another person or person’s favors.”
