My boyfriend is very stressed. With college, work, and a mother that treats him like shit. He is starting to lose his faith in his own abilities and even admitted he does not love himself. He loves me dearly and I love him too and try to remind him how great he is.
So can i love someone who dosent love himself? Should I?

I have respect for you for staying by his side.
I was down in a hole mentally for the first 6 months after my father's death, and I now realize how draining I was negatively on the energy of those close to me.
You can definitely love him, though also you need to be aware that your needs have to be met too. If his issues start rubbing off on you, definitely re-consider your position. Also he needs to take steps to help himself. If he is not improving, you don't want to be in the same position years down the track.
Harsh advice, but from what I went through myself, honest5

The thing is you can physically love someone, because you can see all the wonderful things they don't but they can't love you the same back if they don't love themselves. things like this never work it always causes issues. people shouldn't enter relationships when they have demons with their own lives. both parties should enter a partnership because they've both built great lives and now they wanna share it.0
