10 Shocking Examples of Extreme Self-Love
Self-esteem and self-love is important. After all you know what they say — if you don’t love yourself, who else would? We know how low self esteem and regard of self can be destructive. However, when a person thinks he/she is more important than everyone, then it becomes a problem. There are quite a few narcissistic people in the world, a lot of them in the world of Hollywood. While they are important people and influence the world, they need to learn some pointers or two in ‘Humility 101’. Here are 10 stories of people who took self-love to the extreme.

Although it wasn’t technically a legal ceremony, Yasmin shares that it served as a symbolic ceremony that one should love yourself first before accepting anyone else into their lives.

Dictator Erects Bronze Statue Of Himself
Dictators are a whole new level of narcissists. As one particular dictator demonstrates, they can sometimes go a bit too far. Turkmenistan’s self appointed leader, Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, had a giant bronze statue of himself erected on top of a white marble cliff on Ashgabat, the country’s capital.
Berdymukhamedov claims the statue was created not for him, but because of the constant urging of his people. “My main goal is to serve the people and the motherland,” he proclaimed humbly.
Man Marries Himself
Another person is so in love with himself that he married himself! A Florida man named Derek Mishov exchanged vows with self in front of his daughter, family and friends. The ceremony was officiated by his uncle.

The NY Yankee Alex Rodriguez, a.k.a. A-Rod to fans, is known to have a bit to have an inflated ego. His self-love even delves into the realm of fiction and mythology, according to an ex. She shared to US Weekly that A-Rod even has two giant self-portraits of himself portrayed as a centaur (a mythical half horse, half man) and one was hung right over his bed. The former girlfriend told that it was absolutely ‘ridiculous’.
