Chinese Women, Asian Women, Online Dating & Things Chinese and Asian
Originally from Seattle, USA, I've lived in China for 27 years now, 22 of them in Taiwan. For those 27 years I have been teaching English to Chinese people of all age levels; kindergarten, primary school, junior high, high school, College, University and many business managers. I have traveled to many countries, enjoy cycling very much, enjoy reading and studying and love Chinese Art Museums and walking through Nature. My favorite musical instruments are 古筝。。 古琴 。。 琵琶。。 二胡 。。 笛子 。。 (guzheng, guqin, pipa, erhu, dizi).

How many times do Westerners and Chinese have the frustration about understanding each other ?   When will it ever cease?  Most likely ... never ...

However, in my thinking there are some healthy ideas (i deleted the other ideas) that might reduce this frustration to a more suitable level .   

I don’t mean that it is more important to love ourselves than to love (humanity - your family - the people living in your Country -- your social group). I just mean that loving yourself is the way you love others. I mean that loving yourself is, in a way, more important than loving your neighbour because, without loving yourself, it is quite impossible to love your neighbour.-- 

We need to find healthy ways to have good self esteem for ourselves first ... then we are more able to appreciate the qualities of other people -- especially those from a different Culture!   

We should try to remember that in this prevalent Globalization that continues to move forward as a juggernaut -- We should of all people .. who belong here -- to continue to find ways to appreciate each other more each day ...  

p.s. there were more information from my sources ... but too lengthy ..

Jim, I realize that when you wrote this Brexit had not yet happened, but do you still believe that globalization is moving forward like a juggernaut now? Or has Brexit caused a considerable slowdown in that process?

BTW, I agree with you wholeheartedly that the ability to love someone else fully is very much contingent on one's first possessing a positive and healthy love of him or herself.

I agree with you. It would be a great outcome for relationships if we all could recognise the importance of self- love and forgiveness.

Most airline passengers understand the oxygen mask drill. If you put your oxygen mask on first, then you put yourself in a much better position to help others with their oxygen masks.

The same applies to self-love. If you give yourself love and forgiveness then it is much easier for you to give abundant love and forgiveness to others.
