When attempting to add myself it shows this message

You cannot add yourself as a contact

Adding yourself has legitimate uses comparatively to emailing yourself. This lets you communicate information and files between your devices.
It would be great to permit this

It appears this was changed to disallow in 4.2.0

Prevent user from adding themselves as contact

Removing this in src/converse-rosterview.js returns that functionality:

                } else if (Strophe.getBareJidFromJid(jid) === _converse.bare_jid) {
                    el.textContent = __('You cannot add yourself as a contact')
                    u.addClass('d-block', el);
                    return false;
