On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
The word "know" there in Greek is "epignosis", which means, "experiential knowledge".
There may be people whom you don't like but sometimes, they are the people who could help you. Whatever kind of people they are, love them as yourself. And the saying "no man is an island' is correct. What will benefit you if you just love yourself...if you are just always thinking of yourself. Don't be a kind of person who always think of "me, i, my, myself and mine" alone.
