I think it is hard to love yourself. To separate yourself into lover and loved that way is just an illusion due to an imbalance in the mind. This imbalance is the result of identifying the consciousness, which is basically a tool that we need to survive, with the whole thing which is much more than that. The consciousness objectifies the world in order to make it easier to deal with and utilize for our physical benefit. But when you start treating yourself as an object to be loved by the tool which has no capacity to love you are headed for a psychological crash.
Who is the "First You," who is the "Second You" that the "First You" loved? It's enough if you can be the way you are. To love yourself is just … weird. In layman's terms, you're nuts.
