As if you could love a “me” separate from their body, their personality, their name, anything.
One does exist, but what is the problem is that one has these crazy ideas of how one exists.
As if there’s some little “me” sitting in their head which is the author of the voice that’s talking all the time, and judging and deciding what should they do now, and is worried: “Will people like me? Am I good enough? I’m not good enough.”
That “me” is obviously false.
