“Most unhappy people need to learn just one lesson: how to see themselves through the lens of genuine compassion and treat themselves accordingly…It’s about giving yourself the acceptance, love, and esteem you’d give your best friend.”

Loving Yourself

We are human, all of us.  We thrive on love.  Too often we think that this means only the love of others when, in fact, loving ourselves is at least as important.  Relationships do better when each person loves him/herself as well as their partner.  What does this mean?  To me it means positioning yourself to thrive.

For each person the tactics for this might be different:  finding a job that’s fulfilling; being the best parent possible; making sublime music; inventing something new; growing the perfect garden and sharing its bounty with loved ones; learning to meditate; journaling to explore and heal hurts; taking the time to read a great book.  The possibilities of how you thrive are almost endless.

How are you loving yourself these days?
