We can only love our neighbor as well as we have processed love in ourselves. Jesus told us that we are to love our neighbor “as ourselves,” which for many, can be a daunting task.

Here are some common signs you may struggle with a work of self-rejection in your life.

  8. Constant feelings of inadequacy and inferiority.
