I’m not trying to lie or anything. Someone might wonder about me coming out as a Buddhist many times as a kid when I was posting on my other post. They might think, I’m lying. I was only a Christian out of fear. I only knew a few evil Bible verses but felt like I had to. I know much more now, whether it be on Christianity or keeping my mouth shut.
I’m going through the exact same thing myself. I posted my story and I’m going to help you with yours. I remember reading in the dhammapada that you have to love yourself as well. This was later on in the book and I can’t quote what chapter it is. This is a lot easier said than done because society often teaches that loving oneself is shameful. Just remember that you are equal to me, I am not anymore important than you and you are not anymore important than me. Buddha viewed ALL life was sacred.
