Jesus is here with you and me via His Holy Spirit. Jesus loves You! How are You doing at loving Yourself? Here's a self check!
1 Corinthians 13 describes that love called "agape".
"Love is patient, (I am patient with myself).
love is kind. (I am kind to myself).
Love does not envy, (I choose to be thankful in all things).
love does not boast, (I choose to give God the glory in all things).
love is not proud. (I choose to give God the glory in all things).
Love does not dishonor others, (I choose to honor the differences in myself and others).
love is not self-seeking, (I choose to seek the kingdom of heaven first).
love is not easily angered, (I choose to listen more, see with new eyes, and breathe deep).
love keeps no record of wrongs. (I choose forgiveness and forgetfulness).
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. (I choose truth).
7 Love always protects, (I choose to protect myself with flexible - not rigid boundaries).
Love always trusts, (I choose to trust the LORD who works in and through me).
Love always hopes, (I choose to rest my hope in Jesus).
Love always perseveres. (I choose to to never, never, never give up).
8 Love never fails... (I already know the end of the story... LOVE WINS!)
13 ...And now these three remain: faith, hope and LOVE.
But the greatest of these is LOVE. "
