What exactly does self-love mean?

What exactly does self-love mean? | THOMAS A HOLLBACH

Is it perhaps to be able to accept yourself in difficult moments or to always accept yourself in principle?
Is it “just thinking about me” or “always being there for others”?
I think basically everyone defines their own self-love.
For me personally, that's actually a lot at once. Yes, in 'self-love phases' I think more of myself than of others, from this point of view of my personal well-being, BUT, because I am closer to myself, I can also communicate more deeply with others. I set a wide variety of priorities. Yes, I consciously say self-love * phases * because that is not continuous for me. It's just not a ’thing’ that stays that way forever. I think that's the whole point: when you think of self-love, you always think first of 'being happy', of being in a good mood, but what if that doesn't always define self-love?

Where exactly is this 'limit'? When do you start to define this 'love for yourself' that everyone always talks about so enthusiastically? Who actually decided that from right there, and nowhere else, does self-love begin?
Personally, I believe that the limit is defined by the tolerance we have towards others and, above all, the tolerance we already have towards ourselves personally.
Self-love never flies to anyone. Don't you have to work a bit for it anyway? Or maybe even harder than you think? - Otherwise we would always love ourselves, right from the start. And is that really the case?

Where exactly does your love for yourself begin? And where does it stop?
