People say the meanest things about themselves all the time.
- There’s just too much fat here to lift my leg to my chest.
- I’m lazy.
- I didn’t want to because it’s too hard and I’m not tough enough.
- I take the path of least resistance because I’m not capable.
- I’m irritated with myself because I’m making mistakes.
- I’m a failure.
Self-hatred is alive and well…it’s rampant within ourselves + all around us.
Culturally we’ve been programmed to believe that you need to beat the crap out of yourself to improve.
My friend…that’s not the way.
Self-hatred leads us to being stuck, confused, more self-hatred, + giving up on ourselves and our dreams.
Instead, you must become your own best friend to improve YOU and your life.
It’s about loving yourself.
It’s about being compassionate with yourself.
Compassion has boundaries, so it does not mean binge eating and binge watching Netflix.
When you have boundaries…you can reflect on what’s working well and what needs improvement.
When you are your own best friend who is filled with compassion you can be curious.
You can learn, grow, make mistakes, and see the possibilities your life has to offer.
This is your one and only relationship with YOU.
There’s enough pain in our world already.
Be your own best friend, where you are kind to yourself, love yourself, hold yourself accountable, support yourself, and help yourself back up when you fall.
Isn’t this how you’d treat your best friend?
Treat yourself as your own best friend, our communities need less hatred and more love + compassion.
When you are your own best friend…you are more powerful in your life.
When you are your own best friend…you are able to achieve your goals.
When you are your own best friend…you are bringing in light into your life and those around you.
Be your own best friend…this relationship with you which then allows you to have relationships with others.
P.S. One way you can treat yourself like your own best friend is by trusting yourself. Get my on-demand Trusting Yourself workshop HERE.
