I think it is very important for one to like one's self and to be proud of one's self. Otherwise, we may try to escape from ourselves. Liking one's self and being proud of one's self depend on the ACTIONS that we CHOOSE to take. If we consciously choose actions that make ourselves proud of ourselves and like ourselves, then we won't want to escape from ourselves. I've been feeling really down myself in the recent past, but I prayed for help and I feel like I got some new intuition. I had been taking actions that didn't make me feel good about myself. Therefore I decided to change all that. I decided to imagine a person that I like and respect and I began to choose actions that that person would take. And because we are what we do, I became more of a person that I like and respect. I feel less urge to escape from myself now.
