What does it mean to love yourself?

I have been told I have to love myself to be loved. For reasons I may never understand, I find it hard to love myself without the validation of others. And I have difficulty telling the difference between loving myself and being conceited.

Getting off social networking is part of my learning to love myself, again, because relationships based on social networking are meaningless, and as much as I may miss sharing a funny video or a random idea, I don't want meaningless relationships. I'm doing a bit of emotional de-bulking, by maintaining those relationships that mean something to me, and the other person.

And I don't want the distraction of social networking as I try to get my house in order.
