I Love Myself So Much…

At the concert Friday night, our encore was a very simple bouncy little song they sing at the Agape International Spiritual Center(and at our church too), about how you can’t love anyone else unless you love yourself. The choir went into the audience and we picked random people to sing to, and they sang back, and we all kept switching partners, and the whole place was singing, and dancing and smiling. People just lovin’ themselves so much! So they could love others so much! And on and on.

Look at the darling little partner Seth found for himself. These are the lyrics we were all singing to each other…

I love myself so much,
So I can love you so much,
So you can love you so much,
So you can start loving me.

Of course it is easier for them, being so fresh from God. It’s more of a challenge for adults to hold hands with a stranger and sing,”I love myself so much.”

Most of us have been conditioned to listen to outside voices, telling us we’re not lovable. Not worthy. Not good enough how we are. I love myself so much? Please.  

But one woman I met at the conference shared how she’s come to see self-love as a Divine mandate, because as the song says, you can’t love anyone else without it. 

I love myself so much,
So I can love you so much,
So you can love you so much,
So you can start loving me.

    No truer words were ever spoken. What a great story. I love that little girl’s bare feet and the sweet look on your son’s face.

  2. Wanda says:

    Yep. Love. One Love, to be exact.

    I’m still humming “Everything Is Holy Now.”

    Hey–me, too! I’m part of everything. What’s not to love when you’re part of everything, which is holy now.

    Oh, how sweet is that?! I lurve it. I lurve your boy.

    I lurve you. (because you help others lurve themselves.)

    Whew! You’re right, Michelle. It goes so against my grain to say I love myself. Guess I gotta get over that, huh?

    Thanks for the food for thought.

    I *just* heard this song for the first time tonight on the agapelive website. How beautiful! Do you know if it’s recorded on a cd? I would love to listen to it and sing along at home. Thank you for posting!

    I am not sure if it is recorded or not? Maybe call the store at Agape and ask them. Thanks for commenting!
