How would you treat yourself if you were your own best friend?
It is no secret that we are always hardest on ourselves. And we really can be quite nasty. I know I have often said things to myself that I would never in a million years think to say to another human being, let alone someone I have no choice but to spend the rest of my life with.
What an incredible and simple concept, to be your own best friend. Do unto yourself as you would do to others you love.
If I were my own best friend, I would smile and greet myself in the mirror as I walked by each morning and perhaps laugh playfully at my disheveled self instead of cringe. I would be kind. I would be respectful, and patient with me. I would listen, to my heart, to my soul to my voice. I would be encouraging and not be afraid to give myself a little kick up the ass... but not too harsh in that I could not easily forgive myself for not getting it right this time. I would give myself space and allow myself time to rest and heal or be angry or sad if need be. I’d joke with myself and not let me always take life so seriously. I wouldn’t put quite so much pressure upon myself, and never be mean or attack myself for being or looking a certain way or doing, thinking or feeling something “wrong”. I would be there for me if I would fall. I would kiss my cheek, hug me tight and tell me that everything is going to be alright, no matter what. I would help me back onto my feet every time, hold my hand and walk beside myself for the rest of my life.
How would you treat you with love?
Be bold, be sexy, be fierce and be your own best friend.
