This may seem like a weird question to ask but I want to know others opinions. I recently SELF harmed and I think my stepdad noticed but instead of asking why or talking about it he gets angry. He starts saying that I don't love him because I don't love myself enough to not hurt myself. He thinks if I can't love myself I can't love anyone else and I think he's wrong. Any thoughts?

I think yes you do have love for others
in spite of the self harming

it might be a bit ' on our own terms '

the more we treat ourselves well
the more pure will be our love for others
