6: Is it possible to love someone if you don’t love yourself?

In my opinion, yes. You are still capable of having feelings towards other people, even though you might not appreciate yourself enough. And that might either make it harder for you to grasp if they return those feelings (but in that case you not only get to feel the energy of your love towards them but also theirs towards you and that could make it easier for you to love yourself) or make it easier to accept it if they don’t return your feelings (though obviously that’ll make you sad for a while, even if you realise that their feelings about you have nothing to do with your worth as a person).

In my case having feelings for someone filled me with so much positive energy and wonder and appreciation (which I previously hadn’t felt for a while), that even though they didn’t return them I knew I had to cherish the fact that I had felt them, and I even started recognising that I had the same kind of feelings towards things, thoughts and ideas, rather than people alone, which in turn has made me very happy. (I might make a video about this, btw)

17: How would you define yourself, without saying your name or giving a physical description of yourself or your obvious personality?

Oof, I don’t think I even know what my obvious personality is (according to that test (and my own observation) I am a Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling Perceiver (INFP), btw).

But in general, I’m an idealist who believes in her own truths a little too strongly without truly being able to define or defend them all of the time. I write to cope with the endless flood of feelings and thoughts I’m having and very much like to reflect on experiences in order to learn from them and turn them into something useful and meaningful. My alone-time limit is much higher than my surrounded-by-people limit, I get very sensitive and irritated when I’m around people for too long, it’s like my physical personal space slowly expands while time passes. I’m very will-powered when it comes to how I look and what I would like to do with my life, which makes me kind of headstrong sometimes because I find it hard to take people’s advice and / or criticism if it is in conflict with my feelings. I’ve been raised to be very careful with my body, I don’t like falling or losing control etc, which has lead to me only following through with doing things I know I can do, I like trying things though. I also bruise and scratch easily, but I’m strong where / when it counts. My doctor was very surprised to see that my body had healed from an intense Pfeiffer in a really short time, without causing any tiredness at all. And I’ve had a few heart aches which in turn have taught me a lot, and were very influential to my attitude towards, and outlook on certain things. It has not made me scared to fall in love whatsoever, because feeling like that, in itself is so wonderful that it doesn’t matter what happens all that much. Though I am a little afraid that I’d accept it too easily if someone doesn’t have as much feelings towards me as I do towards them. I’d encourage people to not be that person who is just in love with the fact that someone loves them.

Anyway as you can tell I’m also very elaborate and I probably take things way too seriously.
