Awww, thanks <3

I think that because it's what I've observed in most cases people have seen hints of the real me. Generally the more they see the more negative the reaction. It's a bit lonesome, but I've got a couple people who like me, which is nice.

I think it's mostly due to me being amoral and self serving.

I like who I am despite what others may think about me.

Just a hunch, but I'd say that true self-esteem comes from within.

Now just me rambling: I think people always try to make it about them. No matter what, we want to make it about ourselves. We're very self-centered like that. Most of the time, it works. Even with other people's self-esteem. At least a certain layer of it. My low self-esteem seems to stem from external sources; people telling me what is wrong, right, good, bad about me. It started early enough, so it easily became what I believed. But I pretty much love myself now. I would love to live on a planet full of a billion versions of just me. Not sure if I have high self esteem or not since I still care what people think about me. Maybe it's developing? I think when we're young, we depend on others to tell us who we are and how much we should value ourselves. In the end, it's up to us.
